Re: [datameet] Re: zip code boundary of USA

2020-07-26 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
The only authoritative data I have seen, is available here:
https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=8d2012a2016e484dafaac0451f9aea24

This is available in a .lpk format, which is basically a zipped File
Geodatabase, with some symbology.

You can open this file with an application like 7Zip, or WinRar, and then
extract the .gdb folder. This .gdb folder, can be opened by either ArcGIS,
or even by QGIS.

Re: [datameet] Re: India's Weather Zones GIS file !!

2020-05-18 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
There are various ways that you can look at these zones.

If your outlook is targeted towards Agriculture, or ecology, then you
should look into the Agro-climatic Zones. Various Research bodies define
them differently:
https://vikaspedia.in/agriculture/crop-production/weather-information/agro-climatic-zones-in-india

If you want to have the data match the IMD's Sub divisions (WHich are
divided on an Administrative Basis, and no on any geographic bases) then
you will need a Map like this:
https://mausam.imd.gov.in/imd_latest/contents/index_rainfall_subdiv.php

Re: [datameet] Re: Facebook Road AI data!!!!!!!!!!

2020-04-28 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Nikhil,

While you can always connect to the GeoPackage via a sqlite connector, and
Run Spatial SQL queries, the easiest way to create a subset, is using
GDAL's ogr2ogr utility.

If you have Qgis Installed, you would have an Os4GeoShell (For linux and
Mac, the command can be run in your regular shell).
Here, you can use ogr2ogr to transform data quite quickly, and creating a
spatial subset is as easy as passing the proper boundingbox, in a command
like this:


ogr2ogr -clipsrc 70.1 18.2 75.5 20.6 output.gpkg input.gpkg

Devdatta

Re: [datameet] India Post Office Data

2019-12-03 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
I have finally found my Whale!!

For a Long time, I have been searching for an example of a Pincode, which 
delivers to only a specific Government Office/Institution. I finally found 
this link to a circular on the ICAR site, which says that pincode 110114 
has been assigned to it.
https://icar.org.in/files/circulars/new_pin.pdf

Strangely enough, this pincode is nowhere to be found. It is not present in 
the All India Pincode Directory on data.gov.in, nor on the India Posts 
Site, nor on the Bhuvan Site. It not present even in the Contact us Section 
of the ICAR website.

Why it is not present, is one of the many unsolved mysteries of the Indian 
Government.

Hi Peter,

If you need the official boundaries, then you can use the Survey of India's
Country/State Boundary from here:
https://github.com/datameet/maps/tree/master/Survey-of-India-Index-Maps

(As an Aside, if you are currently using the 2011 District boundaries, you
should not face a problem, because those contain a polygon for POK.)

Re: [datameet] Help in extracting Mumbai's Development Plan 2034 as Shapefile

2019-10-22 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
This is coming from an ArcGIS Based Service at:
https://agsmaps.mcgm.gov.in/server/rest/services/Development_Plan_2034/MapServer/

It is possible to scrape the data from here, but we need to know what
layers to scrape. Unfortunately, their naming convention is non-existent,
and unless we have some detailed knowledge on what each layer means, it
will be a futile exercise, even if we get the data.

 Dear Datameet Memebrs,

 I want your help in extracting Development Plan 2034 of Mumbai from
 their web portal . I want the
 whole Landuse with plot boundaries and its metadata (CTS no., DP Remarl,
 Reservation, etc.) in GSI as a vector shapefile. Can anyone please help me
 in doing so?

 Alternatively, the Development Plan 1991 of Mumbai has been hosted by
 UDRI on their portal . Can we
 extract this as well?

 Thank you in advance.

If you are skilled at GIS, then it should be possible to get an estimate.
You can get the boundary polygon of your watershed, and use the data from:

I was told by an old Post master,  that certain Government Buildings had
their own Pincodes, and hence the post office which delivered to that
building, as well as the area around that building, delivered post to
multiple pincodes.

This is either a myth, or an historic fact, but I haven't seen any example
of this.

Re: [datameet] Re: Correct CRS for datameet maps

2019-04-16 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
HI Ashim, & others,

Coordinate systems, and their area of applicability is an abstruse topic,
and one that has many complicated things to consider. So what I'm saying
here is a user-friendly summary.


   - The data in our Repository is in WGS-84 Lat/long, which has the EPSG
   code 4326.
   - You seem to be projecting it to ESPG: 2154, which is coordinate system
   applicable in France.( http://epsg.io/2154)  I can't see a Valid reason
   for doing this.
   - If you need to project to a projected Coordinate System,(Maybe for
   calculating areas & distances) you should use EPSG:7755, (
   http://epsg.io/7755) which is the one defined in NNRMS standards, and is
   used by many Government Organizations, like ISRO, NURM etc.
   - I generally* won't recommend* projecting to EPSG:3857, which is the
   webmercator projection, since it has several issues. *You should never
   measure areas or distances using this projection*.

Devdatta

Re: [datameet] Cauvery River Map Data

2019-02-09 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
HI Thej & Arun

The data is the coordinate system called the India LCC which is defined in
the NNRMS Standard. It has also got an EPSG code 7755 (https://epsg.io/7755)
which should be supported in the latest versions od GDAL/QGIS/PostGIS etc.

For the gernaerl Audiance, the best way I've found to convert this data to
GeoJSON or shapefiles, is to add the data to QGIS, and export it from
there. If you need a Programmatic way, then you could have a look at:
http://terraformer.io/arcgis-parser/

 Else I will write a script...

Re: [datameet] Help with schools location data extracting

2018-12-23 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi,

Since this is an ArcGIS Server REST Service, one needs to be familiar with
the REST API: (
https://developers.arcgis.com/rest/services-reference/map-service.htm)

Then One needs to know which layer/MapService is serving out the data that
you need.
And finally, you need to query the 'Query
<https://developers.arcgis.com/rest/services-reference/query-map-service-layer-.htm>'
end point of the appropriate end point

Devdatta

The WMS service is currently not reponding, because I'm currently

Re: [datameet] Re: Pune Tree Census site

2018-12-23 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Nikhil,

The backend is a Geoserver, which uses WMS & WFS services.

You can add this as a Layer to Qgis, using the following URL:
http://103.233.79.142:90/geoserver/ows?service=wms=1.1.1=GetCapabilities

They have also kept the WFS service running, so it should be possible to
extract the data.

Here is sample in CSV format.

 Hi Thejesh
 Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware of the underlying architecture
 which is used in geo systems. So wasn't able to understand the layers data.
 And now I am able to understand how they come up with polygon on the map.
 Other wise I was thinking that they somehow came up random shapes using min
 max x,y.

 I'm looking into the new api that you have provided and see what I can
 come up with. I ll update. Any advice?

Re: [datameet] States shapefile is based on which Census Year ?

2018-04-27 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
> we are approximately correct is using both the State and the District
shapefiles ?

No!
The states represent the current boundaries, while the districts shapefile
represent the 2001 Census & 2011 Census.

We do not have a District file for the Current boundaries & names.

Hi Ashim,

Both those sections are incorrect. I've created a

The States folder at https://github.com/datameet/maps/ contains updated

This data was originally based on the 2011 Census; We have then partitioned
AP and also updated the Telangan Boundary based on the 2015 Order.

So this data approximately represents the current situation.

Hi shirish,

I'm not quite sure, on exactly what you are suggesting. Making the
Application is not that difficult. It may be a few hours work for someone
who is used to the libraries and web-gis development. The hard part is
keeping it updated. If we have buy-in from Pune Metrorail, and figure out
how they will update it, then we can proceed accordingly.

Re: [datameet] How does OSM store its data

2018-02-04 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Nikhil,

The Database design has been documented here:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Database

This is, at its essence, a modified EAV Model(
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entity–attribute–value_model). A good place
to start researching for these kinds of database design, is to look at
various documents on EAV, its shortcomings & Strengths.

You should also evaluate if a NoSQL/Object Store database might be a better
fit for your purpose, than designing an EAV Data model to be stored in a
relational Database.

Re: [datameet] Ward Boundary of Jaipur on openstreetmaps

If you have scraped then from a site, OSM will not accept that data, as it
will not meet their sourcing requirements.

I'll suggest that you can add it here:
https://github.com/datameet/Municipal_Spatial_Data

If you need help putting the data on GitHub, let me know.

I'll suggest that you speak to the Haryana state remote sensing center.

I just spoke to ppl working there yesterday about the portal they have
created for Gurgaum. I was told that their system is made in such a way
that it can be applied to any city.

They also told me that they have got the mandate to do it for all cities in

Re: [datameet] Requesting guidance on land use land cover classification on Landsat imagery using Python

2017-09-11 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Nishad,

If you are going to classify Landsat Data, you should do a Supervised
Classification. This means that you provide input points, whose Landuse you
know.  This is an iterative method, where you need to provide inputs for
the algorithm to give a better output.

The Link that you shared does Un-Supervised Classification, i.e. without
any apriori knowledge, and hence the output quality will be lower.

I'll suggest you have a look at the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin

for QGIS. The website has excellent video tutorials which show you how you
can achieve a decent LULC classification.

Devdatta

Thank you all for your replies.

@Raphael: Thanks for confirming that OCR is the only way forward. I
suspected as much, but now the Path is clear.

Thank you for your offer of sharing the data, but the objective of this
project is for me to get my hands dirty and learn something new, so I
pretty much have to struggle and extract the data myself.

@Nikhil:
As Raphael mentioned, the data is stored as Unicode, but with garbled
CMaps. Hence my Name in the List, which appears as:

​
Becomes  'तरगशदददवदत शरकपषण' when you extract it as text. They are
displyaing the data in some 'CDAC_GISTSurekh' font. This problem has also

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15385270/read-pdf-using-itextsharp-where-pdf-language-is-non-english/15566820#15566820

[datameet] Need some Guidence on Parsing Electoral Roles.

2017-08-19 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
I'm attempting to read Names, Ages & Genders from Electoral Rolls, so that 
I can create a database of Names, to figure out the General Spread of 
Specific Names across locations, and ages.

I began working with Mumbai's rolls, and am running into the following 
issues:

1) The Electoral Rolls are not in English, but in Devanagari. This is not a 
Major issue, because I could transliterate it into English for Comparison 
(I need the names to be in English, so that I can use Soundex to remove 
misspellings etc). I know libraries for transliteratation that work with 
Devanagari (Hindi & Marathi). Is there anything similar for other scripts 
such as Kannada & Tamil etc?

2)While the Rolls are in Devanagari, the text is not actually in Unicode. 
It is in some other font, and hence when I Get the text out, it's garbage. 
Since Others have worked with the rolls before, is there a better way to 
get the Text Out?

3)If it's not possible to get the Text out, Can we use OCR? What OCR 
library is best at working with Indic Scripts?

If anyone has some experience to share on these issues, it will be much 
appreciated.

Re: [datameet] GIS analysis

2017-03-23 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Having some experience with Urban Hydrology, (as well as having worked on
BISON for BWWSB) here is what I can tell you.

1) For most purposes, running a Simple trace on the Sewage Network by
itself is usually more than enough. In most cases, the STP has more
capacity than the capacity of the drains leading to it.
2) Most of the problems happen when the Storm water does not enter the
drains, or the drains are blocked or have a reduced capacity due to debries
and other foreign bodies.
3)If You want to do a reasonable urban watershed analysis, you usually need
a DSM/DTM with accuracy of a few cm, which is possible only from something
like a LIDAR survey, and not from Satellite Data.

Devdatta

Re: [datameet] Pincode Boundaries of India

Hey Vaishnavi,
That looks interesting.

I've scraped the boundaries for the 6 cities, and put them here:
https://github.com/datameet/PincodeBoundary

At first glance, there are some oddities in the data, so I'll suggest that
you cross check before using them.

Re: [datameet] GoI foss - OpenForge

It looks like a rebranding of https://www.tuleap.org/

They have mentioned this in the credits, but I could not find the code of
this instance, which they need to do to meet the GPL v2 requirements of
tuleap.

Re: [datameet] Need help regarding pincode boundaries in India

2016-10-19 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Ravi,

There are always a lot of* schemesters* around. Just because someone claims
something, doesn't mean that it has any validity.

When the post offices themselves don't think of pin codes as mutually
exclusive and completely covering polygons, It is a big mistake to believe
these kind of data vendors who are just trying to sell snake oil to
unsuspecting organizations.

I'll request you to go through the hack pad as well as all the treads on
this topic, where we have discussed these issues ad nauseam

Someone had collated & shared this data as a Strata .dta file a couple of

Re: [datameet] Digitising Ward Maps of Bhubaneswar, Odisha. [Work in Progress] Information about Bhubaneswar

2016-08-23 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
The way to do this, is to first figure out the Backend of the map. If you
use Chrome's Developer tools, and look at the Network Tab, you can Find out
where the data is coming from. I found out that it coming from an ArcGIS
Server REST endpoint at http://bhubaneswarone.in/arcgis/rest/services/.

You will find a number of layers, and say that I want to get the data for
the BMC boundry, which is available at:
http://bhubaneswarone.in/arcgis/rest/services/Boundry/MapServer/

The Actual Boundry is at layer number 2, and then you can query it by using
the following URL

http://bhubaneswarone.in/arcgis/rest/services/Boundry/MapServer/2/query?where=1%3D1=esriGeometryEnvelope==esriSpatialRelIntersects==*=true=falsefalse=falsefalse=false==false===geojson

This gives you data in GeoJSON

Hi Pratyush,

After you shared the link on the Slack channel, I scraped some of the data,
directly from the ArcGIS backend.

I've shared it at the following location:
https://github.com/datameet/Municipal_Spatial_Data/tree/master/Bhubaneswar

Having the original data, as compared to digitized data is better, because
invariably some errors are introduced when you Georeference, and Digitize
data, based off that.

Hi All,

I've created a repository on Github for all Municipal Spatial Data that
I've converted/Scraped over the years.

You can access it at: https://github.com/datameet/Municipal_Spatial_Data

I'll add some more cities over the weekend (Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore), but
if you have any Municipal spatial data or wards boundaries of other cities,
please feel free to send a PR, or get in touch with me.


Regards,
Devdatta

Re: [datameet] India Village Shapefile Data

2016-07-08 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hey Justin.

>>Devdatta, ... you have to have the data too!?? I personally don't have
any data of Villages with me.
For two reasons:

   - Having worked with this Data when I was working with ISRO on
   India-WRIS, and with Government of Bihar, I don't want anyone to entertain
   the possibility that I stole the data from there. NDAs and Official Secrets
   Act is a Scary thing for me personally.
   - Having looked at this data, I question the possibility of a uniform
   All India dataset which matches other datasets. I think that probably only
   the Census Dept (not even the Survey Of India) has a decent All India
   Dataset. I do not know that by law, all Government Departments need to buy
   their data from Survey Of India, and that data is terrible. Hence the data
   at India-WRIS, or Bhuvan, or Bihar's IBhugol is not an up-to-date, usable
   dataset.  I don't know where the ppl at BISAG got the data for National
   Centre of Geo-Informatics.

>>why people from India aren't posting the data when they have it

I can't answer for others, but I imagine, that this is because it is
difficult to explain how this data happened to be in your ownership, when
the original source is usually Survey Of India, or some other Govt
Department.


>>Can it be hosted on GitHub?

Even Though I'm not a Lawyer, my understanding is that it can be. Infact,
given that you are not based in the country, you would be the best person
on the group to do so.

Hi Shijith,
Thanks for sharing the Repo. The data looks quite good; only people should
be aware that there are a few gaps between the boundary, and surrounding
areas.

It's not really a problem unless you zoom in too much, and no one should
use NaturalEarth data for such kinds of use cases anyway.

Re: [datameet] Public consultation on Government Open Data Use License - India

2016-06-27 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
IMNAL, but Overall this license looks quite ok, except for 6.c & 6.e

Does anyone have any idea why they have kept these two things out of
OpenData? As long as you don't use them to claim that these organizations
endorse you, I would wants that people should be able to use them to depict
the organization.

I remember that several years ago, the FBI had an issue with wikipedia
using their bureau's seal in its encyclopedia entry.
http://mashable.com/2010/08/03/wikipedia-fbi-seal/#G7lfD.XyKuqj

Something similar might happen, if these symbols/emblems are out of public
domain.

Re: [datameet] Getting started with maps

2016-06-20 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Manas & Kavita,

Mapping is a wide field, and there are many things, and many different ways
of achieving what you want to.

At it's essence, You would collect or create data, and then using a GIS
software, you would make a Map. The map could be a fixed map, of a
particular area, which would be printed or shared as an Image or PDF file,
or it could be a dynamic web map, where the user can interact with it, i.e.
zoom, pan, click on features to get more information etc.

That was just the essence, and as they say, the Devil is in the details.

Where do you get the data from? Broadly speaking, in the following ways:

   - The easiest is when someone else has the data, and shares it with you.
   For example, a Municipality shares its data publicly, and you use that to
   create a map.
   - You create it yourself. This could be by Drawing on top of  a
   Satellite Image (called Digitization), or by going on the filed with a GPS
   device, and collecting the Lat-long, or By getting raw data, and creating
   location data by matching it with something else. (eg of the last is, say
   you have a list of addresses, and by a process called Geocoding, you
   convert the addresses to Lat-long)
   - Or Thirdly, the data already exists in some other form somewhere, and
   you convert it to your required format. An example of this is Scraping a
   government site, and getting data in a single Machine Readable format.

I'm just scraping the surface, and this field is full of Nuances.

I had taken a session on this, last year, at the Pune chapter of Datameet.
You can see the notes here:
http://datameet.org/2015/09/11/datameet-pune-second-meetup-lets-talk-mapping/
.Rasagya had taken some beautiful notes, which can be seen here:
https://twitter.com/rasagy/status/630060598697439234

Do let me know if you need any more details

Hi All,
I had looked at this site a few months back, and tried to extract the
villages, since it based on a GeoServer Backend.

However, it seems like they have not properly configured the Geoserver, and
it errors out when you try to pull in Vector data from it.

Based on what I've heard about BISAC, they are not really open to sharing
data, and getting this data from them would have a really low probability.

Hi Kuhu?

What exactly do you wish to achieve?  Maybe I could help you.

In most cases, you need to have the data in a vector format (like geojson

Re: [datameet] Help with schools location data extracting

Nihkil,

There is a standard ArcGIS rest endpoint which is the backend for this
here: http://rsgis.nic.in/ArcGIS/rest/services/?f=json.

What data do you want to extract?

Re: [datameet] Newbie here- Need help with shape file of constituencies of India.

2016-05-18 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi Manas,
You need a GIS software to create maps from shapefiles. I'll suggest QGIS,
which is an opensource, free and a feature rich software. You can download
it from http://qgis.org

Once you add the shapefile to QGIS, you can render it however you like.
See this doc for more details:

Re: [datameet] [Draft for Consultation]: National Geo-spatial Policy, 2016.

2016-05-10 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Nisha is completely correct.

This policy is for the DST, and ISRO in particular. It talks about how
government agencies to create spatial data, and share it with the public in
an easy to consume manner.  This Policy infact dilutes some of the
restrictions which were present in 'The Remote Sensing Data Policy',

@Srinivas: This bill isn't applicable to Government organizations.

It will be a strange thing though. It will be legal for ISRO/Bhuvan to
offer this data for download, but not legal for you and me to collect it
without a permit.

I actually understand their intent behind this bill. They want to control
organizations like Google, Digital Globe, & mapbox; But the current form of
the bill is just atrocious.

Re: [datameet] What do you people think about the new proposed Bill about Maps and Geospatial data

2016-05-05 Thread Devdatta Tengshe
Hi all,

I have serious reservations about this draft, and we must definitely
respond to it.


Firstly, this proposed bill is just too vast in its scope. It wants to
regulate not only the capture and collection of raw data, but the
Dissemination and distribution of any kind of value added products, i.e.
visualization, maps and analysed reports. This is something that is totally
unheard of.

There are no reasonable restrictions in it. It applies to satellite/UAV/
Ariel data, as well as digital data depicting natural or man-made physical
features without any limitation of scale or precision.

It applies to to those collecting data as well. So If I download Landsat
Data from USGS's Earth explorer site, and store it on my computer, I need
to apply for a permit under these rules. This means that storing data which
is in the Public domain will be against these rules.

If you for example make a simple visualization about your morning jog, you
need permission under this Act.

Given my background in the GIS Industry (and not in law), I think that we
should respond to it at least along the following points:


   - This proposed bill is just too vast in its scope. It should have some
   restrictions, probably of spatial resolution, and areas. It does not even
   talk about military/defence related area or high security zones, and tries
   to classify the whole of India as restricted. For example, this act should
   be applicable to data higher than say 0.5 m resolution; anything courser is
   not under the ambit of the law.
   - This act tries to prevent the dissemination of data and documents
   under the Public domain. Data from many US, European & Japanese satellites
   is available in the Public domain. I'm not a lawyer, but I don't see how
   controls and restrictions can be applied on this kind of free data.
   - We should argue that is just security through obscurity for Indian
   citizens and countries. This law will not be respected by foreign entities,
   and foreign enemies and terrorists can just source this data from such
   foreign data providers.
   - We should also argue that this goes against the Digital India and
   Start up India programs, and will stymie such initiatives, because over 80%
   of data is spatial data; without the free access to such data by Industry,
   Academia, researchers, and citizens, these kinds of programs cannot
   progress.
   - Coming to the border issue; It is worth arguing that since the Indian
   Government doesn't disseminate high resolution boundaries itself, then is
   unreasonable to expect private players to have correct boundaries to use.
   - The last point is probably for Indian GIS Industry to pick up, but
   this act will handicap the Indian GIS industry and put it at an
   disadvantage when compared to the state of the GIS industry.



Let me know if any more details are required.

Devdatta
