RGeo is a geospatial data library for Ruby. It provides an implementation of the Open Geospatial Consortium's Simple Features Specification, used by most standard spatial/geographic data storage systems such as PostGIS. A number of add-on modules are also available to help with writing location-based applications using Ruby-based frameworks such as Ruby On Rails.

GeoRuby is intended as a holder for data returned from PostGIS and MySQL Spatial queries. The data model roughly follows the OGC "Simple Features for SQL" specification (see www.opengis.org/docs/99-049.pdf), although without any kind of advanced functionalities (such as geometric operators or reprojections)
