How to Cite GIS Materials When writing a research paper or an article that contains references to GIS data, maps, or other geospatial material, it’s important to include a proper citation crediting the author of the GIS work. Citations vary depending on if the map is a single piece of work, part of a map series, an atlas, or a map that is part of a book or a journal article. There are even specific citations if the map was created using GIS software or you are citing GIS data. There are varying citation guidelines for static web maps versus dynamic online mapping applications. For each map, first consult the original work in order to extract the necessary information. Scan the map for the necessary information. Unlike most books and journal articles, the map or GIS data being cited may not contain all the needed information for a full citation. Always check the map first for source information about the map’s author (1), title (2), scale (3), and publication location and publisher (4). Map Author . Author.

13_Xander's Web :: MapMaker v1.2 MapMaker v1.46 Qu'est-ce ? MapMaker vous permet de prendre et d'assembler automatiquement des copies écran, dans le but de fabriquer, par exemple, des images de grande dimension à partir, la encore par exemple, de sites internet comme OpenStreetMap. Outre la copie écran et l'assemblage automatique de ces copies, MapMaker propose un module spécifique qui en quelques réglages, vous permettra de fabriquer automatiquement une grande image. Enfin, MapMaker propose des outils de zoom, de recadrage, d'effacement de zones, permet d'enregistrer votre travail aux formats bmp, png ou jpeg, et permet d'imprimer le résultat à l'échelle de votre choix. Principe de fonctionnement de l'assemblage : Pour construire l'image au fur et à mesure des copies écran, MapMaker utilise des zones de comparaison de 100x100 pixels. De plus, MapMaker compare les zones les plus caractéristiques des images, celles qui ont les plus grands contrastes afin de gagner du temps. Pour les utilisateurs de Linux :

Geotools 8.0 Released The Geotools community is pleased to announce the availability of Geotools 8.0 for download on sourceforge.

04_TrailRunner - Mac OS X route planning and journaling for iPhone, Nike+ SportBand, Garmin ForeRunner GPS Mapnik Available languages — Mapnik is an open source toolkit for rendering maps. Among other things, it is used to render the five main Slippy Map layers on the OpenStreetMap website. It supports a variety of geospatial data formats and provides flexible styling options for designing many different kinds of maps. Mapnik is written in C++ and can be scripted using binding languages such as JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Ruby, and Java. the Mapnik Installation Wiki. You can learn more about using Mapnik at The Mapnik Wiki and by joining the #mapnik channel on freenode Note that Mapnik is a software project and should not be confused with any of the common map stylesheets that might be named after Mapnik. Overview Mapnik can output map images to a variety of graphics formats - PNG, JPEG, SVG, and PDF. Mapnik Styles The Mapnik style rules used for the Standard OpenStreetMap are open-source and can be used as the basis for custom renderings of OSM data (see OSM Standard Mapnik Style below).

11_GpsPasSion Forums - RouteConverter (édit.,conversion routes et traces) Présentation RouteConverter est un programme qui permet de créer, d'éditer et de convertir d'un format à l'autre des fichiers routes et des fichiers traces. Il existe déjà de nombreux éditeurs-convertisseurs tels les excellents ITNConv/ LogConv de notre ami Benichou mais d'une part RouteConverter vient complèter la liste des formats qu'il est possible de traiter : Copilot, Falk Navigator, Glopus, GoPal Route, GoPal Track, Navigon MN6 Route et Storage, POI Route 66, TomTom itn et rte, Top 50 OVL, etc .. et d'autre part il autorise directement la conversion entre tracks et routes. Caractéristiques de RouteConverter : Formats supportés : New : Installation - Pour lancer RouteConverter, double-cliquer sur l'exe ou sur le fichier .jar- Cliquer sur le bouton "Voir les options du programme", sélectionner la langue et indiquer le chemin de l'exécutable gpsbabel.exe Mise en Oeuvre La fenêtre de RouteConverter est divisée en deux parties. Mais ce programme regorge d'autres possibilités. 1. 2. 3.

Osm2pgsql Available languages — osm2pgsql is a command-line based program that converts OpenStreetMap data to postGIS-enabled PostgreSQL databases. Such databases are often used to render OSM data visually using Mapnik, as PostgreSQL is one of the most efficient and flexible formats Mapnik can use for querying large amounts of data. For more information on using osm2pgsql to render OpenStreetMap data with Mapnik, see the Mapnik page. Its homepage is: It currently does not have a sole maintainer but is maintained by a community of contributors and Osm2pgsql does not a designate 'stable' or 'development' versions but most recent builds should be able to be used in a production environment. Until April 2013, it was hosted on svn. It is highly recommended to use a version released since Sept. 2, 2012, which has support for 64-bit_Identifiers. OS Support osm2pgsql is available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. Installation From source From package managers Fedora

Osm2postgresql To simplify rendering with QGIS and other GIS/web servers, this script sets up a PostgreSQL / PostGIS server or database, imports OSM data into it, process those data (including multi-polygons with holes) and proposes a classification. This project is different from the following projects: (although they have a few common goals, hence the related names). It is available at Features Simple usage Example rendering made with Osm2postgresql version 0.1 and QGIS, same area as here. . EXAMPLE USAGE (download and uncompress, then import into database): wget -O - | bzcat > monaco.osm . More examples are shown at the end. Parameters MANDATORY PARAMETER: -f, --file name of .osm or .pbf file to import OPTIONAL PARAMETERS (NOT FOLLOWED BY A VARIABLE): --help display this help --version display the version and date of this script -c, --createdb create a database.

21_home (iTrail) The idea behind iTrail is that you should be able to use your phone to track your performance whilst you are out doing physical things, running, cycling, hiking or skiing, and then be able to use the data how ever you want. Using iTrail you can record the trail you follow, and then plot it on a map. You can record how fast, how far and how high you went and then plot them on a graph. You store many trails and compare you performance between them. Your trails can be exported to an every growling list of websites and applications. iTrail is an application that uses the on-board location-aware facilities on your iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPad 3G. iTrail works best on the iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPad 3G as they has a proper built in GPS technology, which can record your location frequently and extremely accurately. iTrail is currently available in English, Japanese and French, Danish and German. iTrail is in active development.
