[OSGeo-Discuss] FOSS4G2010: Good, Bad and the Ugly

2010-09-15 Thread Venkatesh Raghavan

Hi All,

Back to work after four weeks on the road
with the ZOO-Team.

Enjoyed being at FOSS4G2010. As usual there
many good things, few bad things at least
one ugly incident (for the ZOO-Team).

About the good things, i will not spend too
much time as it is obvious to all. Just to
mention that it was wonderful to meet many
of you folks and learn new things.

Few bad things that I will elaborate more below;

a) Difficulty in meet people since we were all spread
out and there was not much info about common meeting
points
b) No Practical Guide
c) No ice-breaker
d) Had to pay for FOSS4G2010 T-Shirt
e) Lunch at least on the first day was a sea of people and
   great difficulty in getting to the food. Choose to grab
   a sandwich nearby coffee shop
f) Having poster session in lunch-time and having authors
   being present in front of their posters to answer questions.
g) Was not particularly amused by keynote speaker putting out
   his cap and a great guy running to the stage to put coins.
   Must think of better gimmicks to get money flowing into OSGeo.
h) AGM should be planned well in advance. The idea of canceling
   Local Chapter Reports and Committee reports was not a good one
i) Some kind of OSGeo-Nostalgia talk with ex-board director was
   missing
j) seated tables at Gala Dinner. Would have been better like a buffet
   with people able to mingle.
k) Could not see many students. Also, suggestions for best student
   paper and poster award that I have been talking about since long
   is not yet considered.
k) Bad also that I forget some other points to be listed here.

As for the ugly incident, we had to miss the AGM as
our car was towed away by the police for a minor parking
violation.

Hope to see some of you folks in some other parts
of the world when we will have more of the good,
few of the bad and none of the ugly.

Cheers

Venka

 a) Difficulty in meet people since we were all spread

Not really sure what you mean about this. I mean, we
were all in the conference center; the OSGeo Booth
was a reasonably easy to find meeting space, etc. On
each evening, I successfully gathered a crowd of 20+
for dinner, thanks to having a number of ways to pre-assign
spots to meet up, and so on.

 b) No Practical Guide

To the town? To the conference? Perhaps this existed somewhere
else; what would a practical guide contain?

 c) No ice-breaker

I think that with 800 attendees, it gets really hard to host
an ice breaker event practically. Even in Lausanne, the icebreaker
event was pretty hard to actually meet people; imagining it
with 2-3 times as many people seems impossible.

 e) Lunch at least on the first day was a sea of people and
great difficulty in getting to the food. Choose to grab
a sandwich nearby coffee shop

I think a lot of this comes down to unfortunate assumptions
about the size of the conference. The Organizing committee
can correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding was that much
of the conference was designed around the idea of 500 attendees;
food, wireless, etc. were initially targeted for that. With the
conference ending up at almost 900, some of the things that are
limited by physical resources ended up being a bit ... tighter 
than expected :)

 f) Having poster session in lunch-time and having authors
being present in front of their posters to answer questions.

Why is this a bad thing?

 g) Was not particularly amused by keynote speaker putting out
his cap and a great guy running to the stage to put coins.
Must think of better gimmicks to get money flowing into OSGeo.

I don't think that's a bad thing about the conference. I also think
that it tells an important story about OSGeo that most people don't
seem to be getting: we need sponsors if people want this organization
to survive in its current state. We need organizations who want
to support the organization (and the great conference it helps
make happen), we need support.

 h) AGM should be planned well in advance. The idea of canceling
Local Chapter Reports and Committee reports was not a good one

These two statements are unrelated.

Local Chapter and committee reports are no longer practical to do
in a situation where we have all attendees participating. Unless
you limit them to 1 minute per (most people want something more like 5),
it's 2 hours just to do local chapters, another hour for committes,
and another 2 hours for projects.

I discussed with some people the idea of having an What's what in 
OSGeo 'track' -- during breaks, lunches, or possibly alongside
presentations -- that would let local chapters and projects 
present. This would give groups a longer time to talk about what they
were doing, and would give people who are interested in what local
chapters are doing a 'default' place to go during these times.

Neither of these solutions is ideal, but short of turning the 
AGM into an all day event, i don't think it's practical to include
local chapter reports in the AGM.

 i) Some kind of OSGeo-Nostalgia talk with ex-board director was
missing

I don't really understand what you mean here.

 j) seated tables at Gala Dinner. Would have been better like a buffet
with people able to mingle.

Enh. I personally liked this, but I can understand either wya. I think
you'll get some each way no matter what you do.

 k) Could not see many students. 

More explanation here; did you mean that students were unable to attend?
That you couldn't tell who the students were? That you didn't feel there
was ample oppourtunity to meet up with students? Something else?

Correct, but not with only right (left) turns, but with much higher

Slightly off the topic - at the FOSS4G conference poster session I saw
very interesting application for tourism with costs assigned according

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Thoughts on how to use elevation in routing

2010-09-15 Thread Stephen Woodbridge
Yes, on the OSGeo Discuss list there was the interesting suggestion that 
one could compute the viewshed for points along a road segment to get an 
estimate of the potential view from that segment. I'm thinking about 
doing this in the future since I already have the DEM which would be 
required for the US. The BIG problem is how to do this from a great many 
points as it is compute cost heavy.


There are also problems with vegetation blocking the view, but just 
computing the potential view based on the DEM might be a good starting 
point. By comparing the difference between a DEM that looks at the 
ground and one that looks at the vegetation you can probably get a good 
idea of whether or not the view is hidden by the vegetation.


So many ideas and so little time and compute power sigh.

In the idea of costing cross traffic turns higher than with traffic 
turns, this would be a very cool feature to have in pgRouting. In the 
abstract we are adding a cost at a node based on a rule. If the rules 
are extensible, then a node might also represent a bus stop and a 
schedule such that given an arrival time at the stop we can cost then 
compute the wait time for each successive departure when doing 
multi-modal routing.

You're discussing an implementation (OpenLayers), with multiple requests to
the WMS server being stacked in the client. 

This discussion is about the WMS API.

WMS draws layers from bottom to top, from the beginning of the list in the
'layers' param to the end.

 layers=foo,bar,baz

will put foo first, then bar, then baz.

One very nice idea I saw at a different conference was this: People with local
knowledge reserved seats in nearby restaurants. Not huge amounts, but just 10
or 15 for each restaurant. They then put the info up on a board at the
conference. Just restaurant type, name, and address. And space for people to
write in their name. This way people who don't have any other plans can
self-allocate to one of the seats. Optionally you can also have subjects or

The whole thing is easy to set up for the organisers and uses the knowledge of

Aeh. No, this is due to the caterer beeing clueless. There is absolutely
no problem doing catering for 800 people in a short amount of time in
the space we had there. I have seen it done before. You just have to
set up the food in a different way. For instance by having more than
two lines. Or by having a different and well-announced place to go to
for just salad. So that some people go get salad and only go for the
other food later.

But I think you are right: This doesn't all have to be in the AGM.
How about this: In every coffee break one or two local chapters present
themselves. Can be done in the poster area. A few people are interested
in several countries, but many people probably only want to know what
their own country is doing. This gives them a little bit of information
and a few contacts to build upon. Maybe same thing for projects. Could
also be combined with the restaurant idea from above.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Re: Java library that can read GML file then port to Java classes

2010-09-15 Thread Justin Deoliveira
In general only the simplest profiles are gml are handled, more or less
simple features level 0. I don't think this schema falls into that category
so while geotools could parse it I don't think you would get exactly what
you expect. I suggest asking on the geotools user lists, the folks that do
complex application schema support should be able to help.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] WMS and layer stacking.

2010-09-15 Thread Bob Basques

 Well I did see that Opaque param in there.   It's better than nothing I 
guess.

It's looking like it's up to the client to keep track of such things, at least other than foreground/background hints 
from the opaque setting.


Thanks all.

All,

does anyone know if there is a layer hierarchy setting in the WMS service,
which layers are on top of which layers (Z value=)?


There is an opaque hint in the capabilities document that suggests
that the layer should be a base layer. Other than that the layers are
just drawn in the order the client requests them and there is no
implied ordering from the capabilities file. For example GeoServer
returns the layers in alphabetical order by namespace then layer name.

2010-09-15 Thread Seven (aka Arnulf)

Venka,
thanks for the feedback. Ideally you would also add this to the Lessosn 
Learned page in the Wiki [1] to be considered at the next conference.


Conference Committee,
it would be great to compile all our experience into a comprehensive 
conference manual. We did this for FOSSGIS in Germany and it helps the 
local teams a lot in running a conference. There already is a lot in the 
Wiki but it is all over the place. Maybe one starting page with a list 
of links would already be a good start. Anybody interested in taking a 
lead?


Best regards,
Arnulf

Hi All,

Back to work after four weeks on the road
with the ZOO-Team.

Enjoyed being at FOSS4G2010. As usual there
many good things, few bad things at least
one ugly incident (for the ZOO-Team).

About the good things, i will not spend too
much time as it is obvious to all. Just to
mention that it was wonderful to meet many
of you folks and learn new things.

Few bad things that I will elaborate more below;

a) Difficulty in meet people since we were all spread
out and there was not much info about common meeting
points
b) No Practical Guide
c) No ice-breaker
d) Had to pay for FOSS4G2010 T-Shirt
e) Lunch at least on the first day was a sea of people and
great difficulty in getting to the food. Choose to grab
a sandwich nearby coffee shop
f) Having poster session in lunch-time and having authors
being present in front of their posters to answer questions.
g) Was not particularly amused by keynote speaker putting out
his cap and a great guy running to the stage to put coins.
Must think of better gimmicks to get money flowing into OSGeo.
h) AGM should be planned well in advance. The idea of canceling
Local Chapter Reports and Committee reports was not a good one
i) Some kind of OSGeo-Nostalgia talk with ex-board director was
missing
j) seated tables at Gala Dinner. Would have been better like a buffet
with people able to mingle.
k) Could not see many students. Also, suggestions for best student
paper and poster award that I have been talking about since long
is not yet considered.
k) Bad also that I forget some other points to be listed here.

As for the ugly incident, we had to miss the AGM as
our car was towed away by the police for a minor parking
violation.

Hope to see some of you folks in some other parts
of the world when we will have more of the good,
few of the bad and none of the ugly.

Cheers

Venka

€ 6.50 which is quite a lot more than the common 2 Ct so I's say it was 
a success.


Sorry if I offended anybody with this performance. I acted on the spur 
of the moment inspired by the performers on Rambla who only move if 
somebody puts money in their hat. It was supposed to be a funny way of 
showing how money makes the world go round and not intended to humiliate 
anyone or depreciate volunteers' work.



At the Board of Director meeting we had a more serious dialog about this 
topic. We hope to identify products that OSGeo might sell to 
sponsors in order to get funding. Or extend our sponsorship program with 
a paid membership for institutions who cannot sponsor. All of this must 
not interfere with the business of OSGeo members and their companies and 
neither will OSGeo allow paying members to meddle with the mission. This 
reduces the potential number of products to sell considerably. 
Constructive ideas are welcome. Or better even, more sponsors.


Have fun,
Arnulf

[OSGeo-Discuss] help with geotifcp usage

2010-09-15 Thread P Kishor
I have a file a.tif with correct proj info embedded in it. I have
another file b.tif with no proj info in it. I want to take the proj
info within a.tif and embed it into b.tif. When I try the following --

geotifcp -g a.tif b.tif b.tif

my b.tif goes from around 321K to 8 bytes. Obviously that is no good,
but I can't, for the life me, intuit what the usage would be.

Corollary -- I have about a 100 target tifs... b_1.tif, b_2.tif, and
so on. I would really like to embed the proj info from a.tif into all
of the b_?.tif so what would that usage be?

Seems like the following works

geotifcp -g a.tif b.tif c.tif

creating an extra file c.tif. What a shame. Now, to figure out if I

RE: [OSGeo-Discuss] help with geotifcp usage

2010-09-15 Thread Homan, Thomas
It's been a bit since I scripted anything in bash and I don't have anything 
fired up at the moment. You'll have to fill in the details on the scripting but 
something like this should be close to working
#
FILES = /path/to/files/*.tif
For f in $FILES
Do
  Echo Processing $f...
  Geotifcp -g a.tif ${f%.*} ${f%.*}.newtif
Done

Once the processing is done delete the *.tif and then mv the *.newtif to *.tif. 
These steps could be handled inside the do but for a one-off process a little 
manual review of results before a delete works well for me.

Just a random thought

[OSGeo-Discuss] Local chapter update

2010-09-15 Thread Tyler Mitchell
Hi all, 
One common question I heard while at FOSS4G was: 
  where can our local chapter tell the world what we are doing?

One is in the annual report, but another is by posting to this discuss list - 
it is also a great way to reach many people.  It is always inspiring for others 
to hear/see what you are doing in your region/language.  I encourage you to 
share your stories, ideas and projects on this list for those chapters who 
would like to.

not so. Well, no big deal -- Perl to the rescue, as all of my app is
