The task is to write a program in java that converts an input file containing text ASCII input into an output file which is also in text format.
The format is strict. The successful bidders will be given the input file sample and desired output file.
At my end, there is a program, which will verify the correctness of the output file. Only when the output file is produced successfully along with submission of source code the payment will be released.
Any 3rd party open source library can be used to assist you in writing this converter, however, the version of that library and where to get it must be documented along with the program.
Sample Input file will be provided along with sample output file.
Requirements of the job:
(1) be familiar with writing converter program taking input / producing output which is delimited files (using space, tabs, commas and new lines).
(2) be familiar with GIS terms (eg latitude, longitude).
(3) be familiar with high school geometrical terms ( closed polygon, open polygon, point and lines), in 2 Dimensional terms (X and Y axis) and 3 Dimensional terms ( X, Y and Z axis).
(4) if you have seen a Zmap output, this will be a distinct advantage, as the input file into the converter you are writing is the Zmap file output. Please state this if you have worked with Zmap output in your incoming bid.
