Doc d'installation Gisgraphy Before install and launch Gisgraphy, you must setup java (you needs JVM >= 1.5), postgres, and postgis. it is not, properly speaking, the installation of Gisgraphy, and if you already havn't Postgres, Postgis and java installed, you must install it first. a tutorial is provided here for linux and here for windows Download a Gisgraphy distribution Fisrt you have to download a distribution here. Download a tar.gz file, if you are on Linux or download a zip file, if you are on windows. Then extract it : tar xvf YOURFILE if you're on linux or double click on the file if your on Windows
Import Geotagged Photographs into ArcMap By Mark Romero Esri Imagery Team You can easily import geotagged digital photographs into your map and integrate them directly into your existing geodatabase using the new GeoTagged Photos To Points tool available in ArcMap 10.1. The tool creates a point feature class in the geodatabase and, as an option, attaches the photos to the point feature class so they can be easily managed along with your other data. You will need at least an ArcGIS for Desktop Standard license and your output feature class must be in an ArcGIS 10 or higher geodatabase. Import photos from your smartphone into ArcMap using the new GeoTagged Photos To Points tool.
Web mapping client comparison v.6 This comparison aims to serve as a basis for those seeking a first approach to Web mapping technologies at the client side. In the sixth version a number of projects have been added and the whole set of clients has been categorized in order to distinguish them better, since there are currently forty four (44) Web mapping clients in the comparison. Web mapping clients play a significant role in Geoportals of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) allowing the visualization of spatial data from several sources. Doc d'installation Nominatim This page describes the general installation process for Nominatim. It is assumed that you are familiar with basic system and database administration. There are also more detailed step-by-step instructions for the following operating systems: Nominatim/Installation/CentOS
Bentley Geospatial Management: Spatially Relating All Your Content in ProjectWise ProjectWise Geospatial Management extends the ProjectWise environment with a geospatial view and gives geospatial context to any information. Drawings, maps, models, images, vendor-specific GIS formats, and business documents in their originally intended form can all be related spatially in ProjectWise. This provides a practical and rapidly deployable system of organization, where the common denominator is spatial location. ExifTool by Phil Harvey Read, Write and Edit Meta Information! Also available --> Utility to fix Nikon NEF images corrupted by Nikon software ExifTool is a platform-independent Perl library plus a command-line application for reading, writing and editing meta information in a wide variety of files. ExifTool supports many different metadata formats including EXIF, GPS, IPTC, XMP, JFIF, GeoTIFF, ICC Profile, Photoshop IRB, FlashPix, AFCP and ID3, as well as the maker notes of many digital cameras by Canon, Casio, DJI, FLIR, FujiFilm, GE, GoPro, HP, JVC/Victor, Kodak, Leaf, Minolta/Konica-Minolta, Motorola, Nikon, Nintendo, Olympus/Epson, Panasonic/Leica, Pentax/Asahi, Phase One, Reconyx, Ricoh, Samsung, Sanyo, Sigma/Foveon and Sony.
Start with psql command-line tool of PostgreSQL Today I will explain how to start using PostgreSQL command-line tool. SQL Shell is a psql command-line tool(psql stands for PostgreSQL). We have two ways to work with PostgreSQL either we use command-line tool or pgAdmin III GUI tool. Here I explain about command-line tool. As you already go through with all PostgreSQL SQL Commands in my last article, you can check all the available commands using command-line tool. GeoTag: An OS X Application to tag photo locations GeoTag Version 3 GeoTag Version 3.3 Screenshot GeoTag is a free OS X application that allows you to update image metadata with geolocation tags by panning and zooming in a map window and then clicking on the location where a photo was taken. It is a good way to add location information to photos or fine tune existing location information. Image file updates are performed using Phil Harvey’s ExifTool.
Part 1: Getting Started With PostGIS: An almost Idiot's Guide (PostGIS 2.0) PostGIS is an open source, freely available, and fairly OGC compliant spatial database extender for the PostgreSQL Database Management System. In a nutshell it adds spatial functions such as distance, area, union, intersection, and specialty geometry data types to the database. PostGIS is very similar in functionality to SQL Server 2008 Spatial support, ESRI ArcSDE, Oracle Spatial, and DB2 spatial extender. Photo mapping Available languages — For tracing aerial photos, see Aerial imagery. Photo mapping, a popular mapping technique, can be a great timesaver - it can be far quicker taking photos of street signs or points of interest than either to write it down or fiddle with the GPS waypointing. What's more, since digital cameras add the date and time to each photo (in the EXIF data), and the GPS tracklog can be used to convert the time into your exact position, it's easy to match up the photos to the exact position they were taken. Simple photo mapping Use your camera to help you remember stuff.
uDig uDig has a walkthrough in Flash and also quick start directions for those who wish to complete a full version build to write plug-ins or contribute to the main build. uDig can use GRASS for complex vector operations and also embeds JGRASS and specialized hydrology tools from the Horton Machine. It supports shapefiles, PostGIS, WMS, and many other data sources natively. uDig is commonly used as a framework for building other GIS platforms and applications. Such applications include DIVA GIS and DEWS – Distant Early Warning System for Tsunamis.
JOSM/Photomapping Available languages — JOSM Screenshot, showing photos arranged along a GPS trace Photomapping In JOSM allows you to work with photos on screen, positioned alongside the map data in the editor. Obviously you can glean information from photos to add to the map without needing to be too clever, but if you have GPS location information included in to the photo files, or you have a separate GPS track, you can work use JOSM's photo mapping features to see them in context, and perhaps position new elements based on the recorded photo positions. Photos with stored locations JPEG photo files can have location information stored within them. Introduction – JOSM This page needs some more links to help pages. Also icons should be displayed instead of describing them. (Example: "The 8th button on the left (an icon with a wrench over a document)")
Development and Comparison of Open Source based Web GIS Frameworks on WAMP and Apache Tomcat Web Servers The generic layered architecture of Web GIS consists of three layers namely user interface layer, application layer and database layer. The clients access the system by interacting with the user interface layers that takes the input and shows the output of the system. It involves graphical user interface therefore it must be designed cautiously so that the user can understand it easily. The application layer provides the map visualization functions like panning, zooming etc. It provides the others functions also like layer selection, editing, querying etc (Lu, 2005). The database layer handles the data present at distributed sources.
