[osg-users] OGR plugin for OSG

Hi @ all,

I'm wondering if there is support for reading/writing vector data via
the OGR library in OSG.
In particular I want to display KML and later GML data on a virtual
terrain or the globe created with osgDEM / VirtualPlanetBuilder.
GDAL is already contained in OSG as a plugin for raster file I/O. OGR
for vector files is part of GDAL and the appropriate source files are
already in the 3rdparty include folder...
Thus OGR should be included in the gdal12.dll in 3rdparty bin folder???

I went trough the implementation of the OSG Shapefile plugin and found
it very handy as a development basis for an OGR plugin.

Anybody already did something like this?
If not I would really appreciate some help and advice how to code the plugin.
