      Description

      It would be nice to have a console where users can experiment with our reprojection capabilities, and maybe also compute geodetic distances using the GeodeticCalculator.

        I don't know if it is of any use, but Geotools has a Console class for experimenting coordinate transformations on individual points:

        http://javadoc.geotools.fr/snapshot/org/geotools/referencing/Console.html

        Jody suggested to move this kind of classes in a tools module, which is probably a good idea.

        Agreed, but it's still too hard for normal end users... they have to grab all necessary jars from GeoTools, and the use it from the command line, and in the end they would not get an exact clone of what GeoServer is using because they would miss our custom extensions (external property file for custom definitions, google projection). I meant to have something web based and fully integrated in GeoServer.

        Yes I realized that a web interface is wanted. I was wondering if something could be done by redirecting standard input / output streams. But it may not be appropriate - it was just a though.
