Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [OSGeo-Conf] FOSS4G 2020 - Halifax site causing confusion

2019-12-05 Thread Ian Turton
It seems that in the short term the best thing to do is for all of us to
link to the official site and make sure that Google notices this - I've
updated the link on gis.stackexchange accordingly. May be some
converted tweeting and blog posting will help sway the algorithm.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Gender neutral default image on webpage

2019-01-28 Thread Ian Turton
It seems that the "members" page (https://www.osgeo.org/community/members/)
is picking it's picture up from the other pictures section not gravatar
which is what the actual member page (
https://www.osgeo.org/member/ian-turton/) uses. This is probably why so
many people have no picture on the members page.

Ian
PS I notice the page title is still in Dutch (?) and my local chapters have

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Code of Conduct... followup to avoid lobbies

2018-12-18 Thread Ian Turton
Plus if someone can be bothered to go to the lengths required to form a
lobby they are probably more likely to interact with the foundation than
the majority of our membership, which is probably a good thing and
certainly one I'm prepared to risk.

ESRI payed for (I understand from Frank) some of the initial development of
GDAL/OGR, with out which much of our software would be much more difficult
to implement.

While I am happy to attack ESRI for thier bussiness methods (of the crack
dealer type) I see no problem with taking thier money to sponsor our
events, it's even bettet if they come and talk with us, show us what they
have been upto in the open source world and for them to see what we've been
up to. We also take money from other "evil" empires like IBM, Google, etc
with out any worries that I can recall.

Plus ESRI have those nicely ironic dinosaur stickers.

Why would the OGC not have ESRI as a member? Its an industry standards
consortium.  If I have an issue it is that ESRI, ESRI UK, ESRI Canada etc
are all voting memembers.

Switching this to the GeoServer Devel list.

We always encourage people to discuss major changes to GeoServer to discuss
them here before they start as there is a much better chance of it being
accepted into the code base and to avoid over lapping and wasted work.

Patrick, please let us know what changes you (NASA) are proposing.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] My feelings about board elections

2017-10-30 Thread Ian Turton
I've spent much of the day thinking that I will just let this thread pass
me by as I don't have the physical or emotional energy to jump into this.
But I'm going to fire off an email because I'm getting angry!

I would like everyone to stop denigrating our new board before they have
done anything, or even had a chance to meet. I have to object to the
assumption that a board member will only act in the interests of their
region or that we the charter members make our choices on race, gender or
regional preferences. I think this runs our organisation down. There is no
reason that any region will not get a fair hearing from the board no matter
how it is geographically distributed.

Now I would like to make it clear that I voted based on my knowledge of
people (and personalities) and the **work** they do on open source projects
or groups that I use. So if you would like my vote to go to your region
please start building software or communities that are seen to be useful.


I would really like this to be the year that we see a lot more building and
a lot less whinging on this (and other) lists.

Ian
(one of the Charter members who no one voted for)

emails, trim the to list and delete the old parts of the message.

As a result of this release, versions 2.10.x are no longer automatically
supported and anyone using this (or older) versions is strongly encouraged
to upgrade at this time. Version 2.11.x is now the maintenance release and
will only be receiving bug fixes rather than new features, users using
these versions should consider using the next 6 months to test and upgrade
to 2.12.x.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Note the LocationTech badge is not showing correctly

2017-08-18 Thread Ian Turton
When we met up in Chicago to set up OSGEO the desire was to be as inclusive
as possible. I donate alot of time to OSGEO when I could be doing something
fun like coding and I'm getting fed up with charter members popping up on
the mailing lists and complaining about stuff that they haven't done
anything about.

I want people to come to the OSGEO website to find out about any and all
open source spatial software, if this worries you then please work to make
your software better rather than trying to avoid the competition or go and
set up another website that matches your dreams of how the world should be.

Just for clarity and background. We announced the project form on discuss
and imported the results/submissions of that form. There hasn't been any
process other than that up to now.

For the record, I'm very much in favor of a "big tent" approach. If a
software had an OSI approved license and deals with geospatial data, I
believe it should have "some" place on our site. This is the approach that
FOSS4G takes and I believe it is very successful for that very reason.

I think we can pretty easily establish a set of criteria that can be used
to make this determination. Whatever approach we take, we should be very
clear what the criteria are.

Glad to be having this discussion.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] OSGeo is the host of FOSS4G not a guest

2017-07-03 Thread Ian Turton
I have to disagree here, to me it is clear that OSGeo is presenting
("owns") the conference while by listing the contributions the OSGeo
provides (seed money etc) formally on the Sponsors' page/list it makes it
clear just how much money (and time) the OSGeo is putting it into the
event.

By formally listing as a sponsor it probably makes it easier to handle
things like remembering to allocate booth space, passes etc as it is
already on the spreadsheet when those tasks are carried out.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Tales from a Benevolent Dictator

2016-05-15 Thread Ian Turton
Marco,

I think you have missed the point of my tales, both the projects that I
wrote about are open source (by any definition) but only the one with an
open organisation is thriving.

OSGeo is designed to support open and sustainable development of geospatial
solutions. A benevolent dictatorship is a fragile model of governance and
so can not be acceptable to us as a foundation.

The (perceived) quality of the software is of no importance in this
discussion if the project fails due to a lack of community.

Ian

PS open hub notes geotools has 241 contributors if we are measuring success
in these metrics.

[OSGeo-Discuss] Tales from a Benevolent Dictator

2016-05-12 Thread Ian Turton
I've been trying to stay out of the arguments about governance models
because I prefer to write code than worry about licences or governance. But
it may help if I share a some anecdotes (which is almost data) about a
couple of FOSS projects that came out of academia when I was in charge. One
of these you may well have heard of GeoTools, which forms the base library
of GeoServer, UDig, GeoMesa and others, the other you may not know GeoVista
Studio.

Both these libraries started out as academic projects that solved a
research problem, both were open sourced as a result of the university
claiming all the intellectual property of it's staff for ever (so why not
give it away?) in both cases I (and James Macgil) were benevolent dictators
when the projects launched, it was a simple governance model that left us
able to get on with coding and researching and meant that things went the
way we wanted. GeoTools started to get some users and people started asking
for bug fixes and new features etc while James & I had actual jobs to do
and wanted to spend time with our families and go on holiday etc. So we got
some more people involved such as TOPP and Refractions and we sort of
lucked into a PSC and GeoTools went from strength to strength and now has a
PSC that spans the globe (which makes meeting times hard to find but is
otherwise awesome). In fact for a while GeoTools and GeoServer managed (or
thrived) with no input from me or James at all. However GeoVISTA studio,
only went open source grudgingly (the PI's didn't want to give up control
really) and never really gained more than a few users because we didn't
allow other people to influence the direction of development (after all the
university/PI was paying for the development) and thus there were only ever
two or three developers. As BD I had no real interest in attracting new
users (previous experience had taught me that's hard work). Once James and
then I moved on to other jobs development stopped (though apparently
someone downloaded a copy last week)
<https://sourceforge.net/projects/geovistastudio/files/>.

I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions but my feeling is that to make
the move from an academic to successful FOSS project you need to move from
dictatorship to committee run projects. If nothing else it allows you some
down time from running the project while never needing to give up having a
say in the running.

Ian


PS Some recent emails have tried to suggest that governance doesn't matter
if you have forkability but I think that is a flawed view - but if it is
true maybe we could just fork RASDAMAN and be done with the discussion? :-)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Board] Funding code Sprints

2016-03-06 Thread Ian Turton
Patrick,

Again you are misunderstanding how sprints (at least in the GeoJava tribe)
work - we plan for weeks (or months) before hand to make the most of the
limited time we have with the developers all in the same room and time zone
there is no brain storming at the event or quilting. We arrive with a plan
and execute that plan. Others are welcome to participate from a remote
location (as I did with the last GeoServer sprint) but there is inevitably
less interaction when you are 8 hours out of phase with the participants.

I'd love to spend my days crafting new cathedrals but there isn't the
demand from customers for that so mostly we work at incremental
improvements to our existing code base. Every so often we can join together
to throw up a new wing or (more often) fix the leaky roof that is annoying
but that no one want's to pay to fix, which is where funding from the OSGEO
comes in otherwise the code will just slowly rot until it all falls apart
and the customers go back to being gouged by proprietary suppliers who can
ignore the rot and just sell on the new shiny paint job.

 Fascinating as this discussion is  I can't help wondering if you (as a

 publish a standard there is a fair chance we will write some code to
 integrate that code into our software, especially if there is user demand.

At the risk of prolonging this discussion I'll add the following.
Currently I'm not seeing any demand for this from users - I hear a lot of
talk about military and 1st responders but the last time I talked to a
military guy he was telling hair raising stories of US Army planes bombing
UK troops because they both use a grid system but the the US has letters up
the side of the map and the UK has letters across the bottom (it was
slightly more complex than that but basically that was the problem), so
their requirement was for WGS84 coordinates to match their GPS.

  My view, it makes sense to keep 1/3 FOSS4G’s in N America and 1/3 in

 South American Community Ian?  There are large, long time, active
 groups in South America hearing from those groups would be useful.

 Any potential LOCs who are interested can certainly send a low-effort
 LOI.  You never know who else will send a LOI, yours could be the only
 letter.  If there are letters both from the target region and
 somewhere else, it is up to the committee if they are willing to

 Yes, choice of license is a personal one, and while we may disagree on it,
 we have to abide by the choices that others make.


Actually choice of licence may be imposed on you by employer or sponsoring
organisation - for example the deal at Leeds University (where GeoTools
grew up) was that we were supposed to sell the code for as much as possible
or we could give it away under the GPL (and later the LGPL). If  the
University couldn't make money then no one could. Added to confusion was
the funding bodies determination that they also owned everything and giving
the code away was the easiest option.

The only thing I hate more than licence discussions is meetings with the
lawyers.

Install GeoServer and GWC and add all your data as usual and all will be fine.

A more complex approach is to install GeoServer 2.1 and cascade the
WMS you usually use through GWC and make sure to visit all the main
areas of interest you might want to see later before you leave the
network and every thing will be in the cache. This might even work
with a slow link back to base to fill in any new areas you visit.

There is an opaque hint in the capabilities document that suggests

just drawn in the order the client requests them and there is no
implied ordering from the capabilities file. For example GeoServer

 humble opinion, it was/is very expensive [for my (still-)student pocket!]:
100.-EU for 300 pages.

 It seems (to me) the book is targeting (only) open source advocates, people
 who don't have problem spending such amounts and/or libraries.


It is the perennial problem of academic publications, the publisher
makes them expensive because they won't sell many copies and they
don't sell many copies because they are expensive. :-( This is
especially annoying as the authors give them the text for free.

 So why should we continue to fill this vicious circle? I hope one day

 Hi Stegan; it was a bit funny. The application window appeared under the

 finding the entry in the task manager and asking the window to maximise.

 Other than that I was unable to create a style using the natural earth 
 countries shapefile - I let the progress bar go for 5 mins before moving on 
 to the next app. For the quick start you may want to be super specific about 
 where to find the data (in the users home directory) and what buttons to 
 click etc..


Were you on  a readonly file system? I know GeoServer has some
issues with adding resources when on a DVD.

[OSGeo-Discuss] are there any unpaid developers?

2010-04-19 Thread Ian Turton
One of my students was asking today about the open source development
process (with special reference to geospatial projects). One question
I'm left with is are there any OSGEO developers who are doing this
just for the fun and fame? I know that a lot of us have fun developing
but everyone I could think of (GeoTools, GeoServer, uDig) gets paid to
have that fun.

 I think that programs to encourage greater use of OSGeo products in
 universities would be a great idea too - ESRI dominate in this area at the
 moment, but this would be another way to get the word out to a broader
 audience.

Currently universities are locked in a vicious circle with GIS
software in that the students demand we teach them on ESRI software
because that's what employers want and employers use ESRI software as
that is what the universities are teaching the students on.

The fact that ESRI are giving the software away for free (or nearly
free) doesn't help. I'd love to teach more (undergraduate) students
with FOSS but first I have to find technician time to install the
software on all the lab machines in the university (which is where
ArcMap is provided) for just one course (and any way why can't I use
Arc like everyone else will be the question). Of course we're supposed
to be teaching techniques not software packages but you still spend
most of your time sorting out the software issues.

So *I* think that universities are a lost cause and we should focus on
high schools - but in many states ESRI has got there before us and has
signed deals with the state to provide arc in schools at no cost to
the school. When I query teachers as to how the kids will do their
homework they usually shrug and point out it's too hard for them to do
on their own or that they can use the school library. May be
elementary schools are the winnable battlefield?

That's not going to happen. OGC has many national mapping agencies as

any of the OGC's business as to what sort of licenses are used on

Martin Davies (of JTS fame) recently had a blog post on this at

I've got The Design and Analysis of Spatial Data Structures  out of

already learned a bunch of stuff about point quadtrees and I'm only up
