Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] XTF reader neede - triton format for sonar

2008-08-02 Thread Massimo Di Stefano

Hi Giovanni,

i never used it directly but,
have you tried MBSystem ?

It can read some Swath files
like multy/single beam, side scan sonar in xtf format :

Supported Data format :

Hi list,
I'm facing the need to process some sonar files in XTF (eXtensible
Triton Format), but I can't find anything as OS to do it.
Does anyone have experience with such a format?

Sempre legato agli annunci precedenti:
ora รจ anche disponibile un GIS elementare, leggero
e veramente molto semplice basato su SpatiaLite e
RasterLite

saluti,

Hi list,

today I released 'spatialite-gis', a really simple
and elementary GIS tool built directly on the top
of SpatiaLite.

http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite [or]
http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite-2.3.1

--

'spatialite-gis' is very alike to 'spatialite-gui';
both are intended to cooperate in a smooth way.

- spatialite-gui allows you to access the DB in
a classic SQL-based fashion
- spatialite-gis supports a more 'visual' and
interactive approach

'spatialite-gis' fully supports RasterLite's
Raster Data Sources: you can get two useful
sample-DB at:

http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite-2.3.1/world.7z
http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite-2.3.1/truemarble-4km.7z

And a complete tutorial is available as well:

http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite-2.3.1/spatialite-gis-basic.pdf
http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite-2.3.1/spatialite-gis-advanced.pdf

IMPORTANT NOTICE: this is an ALPHA state release, so
it's quite unstable for sure; please, let me know
any bug, oddity and so on ...

Enjoy,
Sandro

Hi Ravi,
Yes, you are so right, we do need to collect as much of the material  
from the FOSS4G conference as we can.


One way we hope to facilitate this has been to give every attendee a  
LiveDVD which can be populated with all the material from the  
workshops. This means that if workshop presenters can get their data  
onto the DVD, then they know all attendees will receive it.


So we have budget for the LiveDVD. We have an old version of the  
LiveDVD (based on FOSS4G 2008). What we need to continue through to  
completion is to have someone who will coordinate the compiling of  
the DVD.  This is primarily a project management role, keeping track  
of what is on the DVD and what should be on it, contacting workshop  
authors, and project leads and helping them get their projects onto  
the DVD etc.


Sound like you? It would be an incredibly valuable contribution to  
FOSS4G and the greater OSGeo community at large.

Hi All,
FOSS4G every year is a keenly followed event. Many await the  
publication of material on the website eagerly such that they can  
follow labs, workshops and presentations of choice.


So the present organisers may please request those especially  
conducting labs/workshops to keep in mind the multitudes who  
browse them through the internet can have equal benefit. This can  
be achieved my keeping on the internet for download

1. All the binaries that are required for the exercise
2. All the data that are required for the exercise
3. All the printed material provided for the exercise
4. All the other material provided to the attendees, CD or DVD etc

I agree that most of it is done each time, except for a few  
instances
Example:'Download data from the CD provided', is given in the lab  
pdf.. but the data is not given for download...
Example:'Run the pg_setenv.bat file first,' (FOSS4G2007).. even on  
date a nice archive is available from the FOSS4G2007 website,  
data, text etc..

but, the pg_setenv.bat, not there.

This may be trivial for experts, but for those learning through  
the internet and depending on 'Discuss Lists', it will be a  
roadblock.


Cheers

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] FOSS4G2009 to reach those who cannot attend

2009-08-01 Thread Massimo Di Stefano
 the relative if statment  
to check the module presence.

after this littlle hack i have remastersys semi-working on sidux too.
the live-dvd produced has a working gis software (also 3d with  
ossimplanet) but unluky the script fails to configure the network  
(resolvconf problems)

and it has missed the install to hd tools.
(i'm subsribed to the remastersys forum and i'm tring to get support  
about this problem)





in short word :

using debian or ubuntu i'm not able to have a really platform  
independent 3d environment but i have an installable live-dvd


while on sidux i have all working in live-mode except to the  
resolvconf-dhcp problem (i'll meet a server-mantainers in the next   
days to face out this problem)


again the live is not yet installable on HD (i'm tring to solve this  
on the remastersys forum).





5. Add what ever new packages, linux software, windows installers,  
etc to the LiveDVD. This is the technical grunt work.
Note that the packaging projects like DebianGIS and UbuntuGIS are  
quite robust, and have been very helpful in getting new people  
started with packaging, and many of these people are also on the  
LiveDVD email list.


i've discuss about the osgeo live-dvd project on our local-chapter  
list, we'll be avaiable to produce a local dataset and localized  
documents.


my idea is to use as example data a common dataset based on global  
data + a localized dataset based on local-free data if avaiable.
however we need a common tutorial/how-to workshop files to follow as  
guide-line for the local chapters.



just a littel consideration maybe is is obviouse,
i'm tring the variouse .iso produced and is my idea that the live.iso  
works really more fast if it is booted in a virtualbox machine
i do some test on the live.iso, i find that running it in a VirtualBox  
Machine,  it is really fast rather than a boot from cd.




thanks to read this long-confuse mail and for any feedback.

Massimo.



Welcome aboard.
I suggest that any volunteers join the live-demo email list, and  
respond to this email suggesting how you might want to help.

Cameron Shorter, FOSS4G chair.

Hi,
volunteer:
Happy to note a good discussion.
I can help in seeing the draft of workshops/Labs that deal with  
Vector-GIS and GIS that focuses on Geoscience. Can help in advising  
where necessary, to tune the material such that those multitudes  
not attending the event can equally use the material with ease.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Next 5 years for OSGeo

2009-09-28 Thread Massimo Di Stefano

Hi All,

I agree with you i think we need a local chapter policy, to  
redistribute knowledge and organizational experience through the LC,  
helping ourselves to organize hack meetings and local conferences.


I think we also need to focus on an educational strategy to promote  
FOSS inside university departments.
A lot of people uses proprietary sw for their works not because they  
think
the proprietary software is better than the FOSS, but simply because  
they learned a proprietary application during their study and continue  
using them without considering other sw.


(cracking sw is too easy and in my experience  I see teachers even  
apply cracks or password cracked apps to their students)


So i hope to see in the next 5 years, OSGeo will improve in this  
direction, giving the right weight to an educational strategy.


Regards,

Massimo.

Hi everyone, a recent chat I was asked about our vision for OSGeo  
over

the next 3 and 5 years.  I'd really like to hear thoughts on the
matter
and pool a few of the ideas together for further discussions amongst
committees, projects, chapters and the board.

It's also a good way for the board nominees in the upcoming election
to
get a sense of where other members are thinking these days.



My measurement of success for OSGeo and priorities I hope it shares  
in

the next 3-5 years are the following three items:
- Continued expansion of the local chapters.  Local chapters make  
OSGeo
real in the sense that mailing lists, websites, and an IRC channel  
can't.
- The conference continues uninterrupted for the next five years,  
and we

start to use it our central fundraising piece.
- Cross-project collaboration, like the journal, osgeo4w, metacrs,
benchmarking, system administration, and geodata continues to be
fostered by us.  From my biased developer's perspective, these have  
been
OSGeo's biggest accomplishments along with the local chapter  
development

and consolidation of the conference.


I was going to write a post in response to this, but after reading
Howard's, I realize I hardly need to: essentially, his opinions and  
position

mirror mine 100%.
