Naqsha is a Haskell library to work with geospatial data types. The goal of this library is to provide fast and high level access to various operations in the geospatial setting like distance calculations, azimuth etc. Due to the very nature of the geometry on the surface of the globe, many of these basic tasks have multiple algorithms based on criteria like speed of computation and accuracy. We would like to provide all such algorithms in this package.

The word naqsha, or more accurately naqshA (नक़्शा), means a map or a sketch.
