We like to thank all the people who helped to develop this library.

First of all we are grateful to Hartmut Kaiser for managing the formal review of this library. Hartmut is an excellent review manager, who intervented when necessary and produced the review report quickly.

We thank the 14 reviewers of our library, reviewed from November 5, 2009 to November 22, 2009. Reviews have been written by: Brandon Kohn, Christophe Henry, Fabio Fracassi, Gordon Woodhull, Joachim Faulhaber, Jonathan Franklin, Jose, Lucanus Simonson, Michael Caisse, Michael Fawcett, Paul Bristow, Phil Endecott, Thomas Klimpel, Tom Brinkman.

We also thank all people who discussed on the mailing lists (either at boost, or at osgeo) about Boost.Geometry, in preview stage, or in review stage, or after that.

Finally I (Barend) would like to thank my former employer, Geodan. They allowed me to start a geographic library in 1995, which after a number of incarnations, redesigns, refactorings, previews, a review and even more refactorings have led to the now released Boost.Geometry. And with them I want to thank the team initially involved in developing the library, Valik Solorzano Barboza, Maarten Hilferink, Anne Blankert, and later Sjoerd Schreuder, Steven Fruijtier, Paul den Dulk, and Joris Sierman.
