Thanks for your quick response. From firebug I captured the request that
is being made. Here is an example:

That is interesting. I seem to get it all the time. Is there anything
that you can suggest as for an avenue of recourse from my end? Do I just
wait until someone notices the misconfiguration? Can I find out which

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] UK Interoperability Assessment Plugfest

2013-09-29 Thread Mike Saunt
Daniel, Arnulf et all

Astun have been in contact with the Ordnance Survey regarding this and
would like to participate.  I'm still trying to understand the outcomes
from a business perspective i.e. will there be negative backlash if
software doesn't have a positive outcome.

We have a possible issue with timing but we should be able work though this.

My thoughts at present are that the following software would be looked at
by Astun (which are core to our services):

   - MapServer (vanilla - MapCache potentially could if people felt the
   need)
   - GeoServer (vanilla)
   - OGR (via Loader!)
   - QGIS (Client only)


Interestingly, I think the latter 3 are all used by OS so I'll be
interested to understand their view on the 'compliance' of those.

I'll try to keep you all posted on this - if any other UK OSGeo users /
companies (or elsewhere in the world) would like to be involved I'm happy
to try to coordinate where possible - unless someone else wishes to...


Thanks
Mike

 The best would be to have a champion, ideally based in UK, to coordinate

 On 13-09-26 9:17 AM, Arnulf Christl wrote:

 Folks,
 I very much support this activity and believe that it would be quite
 beneficial to participate. Ordnance Survey is a powerful multiplier in
 the UK geospatial business due to its position as the main data
 provider to the public. There is a license program in place called
 PSMA (Public Sector Mapping Agreement) entitling all public sector
 broad access to OS data. Not Bene - this is a lot more than what is
 published through the Open Data program licensed under the Open
 Government License. I think it is important to understand what data is
 available and also what can be done with the service offering of
 Ordnance Survey. The plugfest will additionally allow you to
 interoperate with other software you typically encounter in the area.

 Cheers,
 Arnulf

 PS: I am not working for or paid by Ordnance Survey or OGC and nobody
 made me say ony of this, it is just my own little gut feeling.

 The plugfest will be held at Ordnance Survey headquarters in

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Problem with Geos-3.2.2, Python Swig

2012-09-18 Thread Mike Toews
Hi Thomas,

Since GEOS 3.0, the Python bindings are unsupported, but the
`--enable-python` option is still exposed in case a new developer
wants to step in and support it. Try removing this option.

However, the good news is that you can use Shapely to do the same
work, as it uses the GEOS C API.

Probably the best list for GEOS questions is geos-devel

 In analysing the downfall of FOSS4G 2012 [1] one of the key lessons that

 Could we do a better job of knowledge transfer by building an OSGeo
 Conference Body of Knowledge? Something like a FOSS4G Cookbook [2]?

 If so, what should be the scope of the cookbook? Should it only be for the
 international FOSS4G event? Should it cover regional conferences too?
 Should it also cover FOSS4G steams in other conferences?

 Who thinks this idea is important enough that you would like to help write
 sections of the Cookbook, or help with editing?

 What format should we use to write the Cookbook? Maybe a wiki?

 I'm interested to help push this idea forward if we as a community think
 that there will be value in such a collaboratively edited document.

  If so, is there marketing fund available for building an expanded

 good bead on what interested parties are looking for in a Geoproduct.

  This type of question/answer packet seems like a good fit for a

   as noted in the original thread on the live-demo ML, much of the OSGeo

It is an open Standard. Both OGC 08-139r1 and ISO 32000. However, I've

question is what OS software either support rendering or displaying

Considering my impressions of the state of GeoPDF, I don't think it
ins't the best option for distributing data on a CD. My suggestion is
to store the vector data in SHP or Spatialite format, and have a

Pieter, good to hear your interest and to hear that geomajas would
be covered.
Anyone interested to step forward for Openlayers, Mapfish or
MabBender?

What should be compared between web clients?
Think of the target audience for such a comparison being a
software developer trying to decide which webmapping framework to
use. What would be the questions they ask?

Off the top of my head:
* What browsers are supported/tested against for each stable release?

* How responsive is the application?
** How large is the javascript which needs to be downloaded to the
browser?
**

* What basemaps are supported
** Google Maps, WMS, WFS, ...

* What tools are supported?
** Pan/Zoom/Edit Feature ...



Pieter De Graef wrote:

Cameron,

if the others are too, I would be interested in such a comparison.
My main question wouls be, exactly what would we be testing?
Performance (how?), functionality, ease-of-use, architecture, 

I still have to check my schedule, but I believe I can set
aside a enough time. I will already forward this mail to the
Geomajas mailing list, to check for response there.

German Carillo has been building a gis web client
comparison which will make a good basis for a foss4g

Does anyone know how to contact German so that we can
thank him, and invite him to participate in a FOSS4G
presentation?

Who else would be available to help out with a browser
comparison for the various projects?

Cameron Shorter wrote:

Abstracts for FOSS4G are due next Thursday 15 April
2010 and I'm hoping that we will see abstracts for:

* LiveDVD lightening overview
* WMS/WFS/WCS Shootout
* Desktop comparison
* Browser Client comparison
* Database comparison

I predict that these presentations will be by far the
most popular presentations of the conference. Further,
I'm expecting to incorporate results onto the LiveDVD.
They will be a lot of effort to prepare, partly
because they will need a team of project developers to
contribute to it, and consequently, unless we get our
act together soon, I suspect that no-one will submit
presentations for some of the topics above.

So I encourage people to respond to the following
targeted email threads, noting your intention to help
and be part of one of the presentation teams. (Note,
the presentation will be the easy bit, the hard bit
will be collating the material for the presentation).

A good team for these comparison projects will consist of:

* a representative from each project in the
comparison. These types of comparisons will be the
first place new users will go when researching
software, so are well worth participating in.
* users who have used more than one of the applications
* anyone involved in related comparison reviews, or
development of feature tables or similar
* coordinator/get it done people who can pull it all
together
* people who can speak well, and efficiently. (You
will have lots of material to present is a short time)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] what about wms-sites.com ?

2009-09-28 Thread Mike Adair
Tom Kralidis and I also worked on a WFS implementation of an OWS 
resources catalog some time ago for the CGDI:  
http://atlas.gc.ca/cgi-bin/owscatwfs?service=WFSrequest=GetCapabilities


where
service_endpoints: are actual service instances
service_resources: are layers and feature types parsed out of the 
capabilities documents harvested.


and the geometry for those feature types  is the area covered by the 
services (with too many -180,180 services).


That way you could do a geographic query for layers/feature types using 
a WFS query mechanism.

  hi all,
  there was a nice site (wms-sites.com http://wms-sites.com) that I 
enjoyed very much because you could do thematic searches of avaible 
WMS, getting back a RSS feed that can be parsed and so on.
  the site has disappeared and I wonder if someone knows something or 
similar sites... I just know the list below, but they don't provide RSS.




I put wms-sites.com together a few years ago.  It was running on a 
pretty outdated setup, and the hosting company I used went out of 
business, so I let it come to an end.


I've started on an updated replacement.  I kept all the catalog 
entries and will populate the new service with these when I get it 
running.


I'll also take a look at http://ows-search-engine.appspot.com/ (I'm 
not getting any response right now).  My current work is also an 
appengine solution - so perhaps there is room for collaboration.


I'll post here when I have something interesting to look at.

Tim


  thanks,

[OSGeo-Discuss] projection projects

2008-01-18 Thread Mike Adair
I'd like to follow up on a conversation that took place at FOSS4G in 
Victoria regarding a gathering of the open source projection clan under 
the OSGeo umbrella.  Frank can probably expand on the idea more, but the 
idea being that it would be an opportunity to build up a community 
around the various coordinate system projects, each of which likely 
wouldn't be able to sustain that on their own.


My immediate motivation for bringing this up now is that I need to set 
up a project infrastructure for proj4js [1]  (svn, trac, email, PSC, 
etc.).  This might be a good fit as an OSGeo 'Lab' project as discussed 
a few months ago, either as a project on it's own or within a group of 
projection projects.


Comments?

[OSGeo-Discuss] Introduction

2008-01-09 Thread mike goldberg

Everyone,

I just wanted to send out an email to introduce myself.  I have been 
reading these threads for a while, but have never really had the time to 
offer support. I can now dedicate time to really contribute and be an 
effective part of the OSGeo community.


My name is Mike Goldberg, and recently graduated (2006) from 
Shippensburg University with a degree in Geography / GIS. Post 
undergrad, i spent a year in Shanghai, taking in the culture and 
learning as much Mandarin I could. Currently, I work for Bentley Systems 
as an Account Manager for their Geo/Civil product lines.  

I am a fairly new Linux user but love the Open Source aspect of the OS.  
I'll be honest and say that I haven't had much experience with the open 
source GIS solutions as I've done most of my work with proprietary 
software in Windows.  

I hope to bring fresh ideas to help bolster Open Source GIS as an 
alternative, not a replacement, to proprietary software.  I think there 
is a time and place for both, with each having it's own benefits and 
pitfalls.  

I look forward to working with everyone here to make Open Source 
software better!  


Thanks!
Mike Goldberg

RE: [Geodata] Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Promoting freely available geodata

2007-04-08 Thread Adair, Mike
More from the Canadian perspective -  the GeoConnections program policy group 
has produced a Best Practices Guide for licensing of geospatial data which 
might help to inform the debate:
http://www.geoconnections.org/publications/Best_practices_guide/Guide_to_Best_Practices_v12_finale_e.pdf

It provides a good overview of the background issues and proposes 3 types of 
licences to standardize on: unrestricted-use with licence acknowledgement 
(click-through), an end-user licence and a distributor licence.

 Given the interest, maybe the 'OSGeo people' who are already 
 involved could organize a BOF session, and also do some 
 presentations. If there are 'local' resources such as 
 Canadian municipal/provincial/federal managers(or perhaps 
 even better, people from their legal departments) who could 
 attend, then perhaps they could also participate in the 
 BOF/presentations. Also, maybe there are lawyers who are 
 local(e.g. Victoria or BC) any who have some interest or 
 expertise who could attend - even if their perspective is 
 based on Canadian law, it might still help illuminate the discussions.
