uDIG : Some questions

Jérémie MARTINEZ
Hello,

Let me introduce myself : I'm Jeremie Martinez, a student of a French engineering school  (INSA Rouen). To complete a project given by a library, we have to spatialize this library in order to be able to retrieve the books inside and give users their locations. We have made many researches and it turns out that uDig seems to be the application which suits the best with our needs and our skills. I tried to have a conversation with an administrator on your IRC server but with no success. So, I hope we could exchange some mails in order to have information about how adapt uDig to our problem.

I would like now to present what we plan to develop in order to have your opinion and maybe some advices in order to start this project in the right way. Indeed, to succeed in this project, we have to modify the uDig application and add some plugins to suits better the need of a Library. 

The first thing is to constrain the user to add only form well-defined by us like an rectangle with a fixed size. So instead of being able to draw a polygon, we would like to constrain the user to draw only rectangle of a fixed size.

Another thing is to be able to visualize further information that it contains in our PostGIS/PostgreSQL through a WFS/WMS Server (actually GeoServer is our first choice). Indeed, we have added in our tables some columns which are not spatial but that we would like to visualize in the form of a table.

These two new functionalities have to be in separate views (like we can see in the RCP System of Eclipse). 

As I wrote it before, we would appreciate some help. Indeed, your uDig application is pretty consequent and save some time would be appreciated. So, my main question is how should we start? Any advice would be very appreciated.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks in advance for any help.

NB : The application we will develop will continue to be open-source. Indeed, our customer required it and it's also important for us.

Re: uDIG : Some questions

Jérémie MARTINEZ
Thanks Mauricio.

I have already made all the tutorials which are available on the udig site. However, It doesn't really help about how to start concretely except about starting with the RCP model. Does it exist any documentation about uDIG like a Javadoc for instance? Indeed, I have some trouble to find the right tool or the right package.

By the way, Am I writing on the right mailing list or should I use the udig-devel one? (I didn't know it existed...)

Actualy, I think Javadoc is necesary if you do not have acces to to the source code, but if you prefer the javadoc layout then select from the menu

In reply to this post by Jérémie MARTINEZ
Hi Jeremie:

We have a policy of providing the commercial training materials to those from an academic background (primarily to encourage grad students to take part in the uDig project). These additional tutorials cover a lot more of how the application works internally; and how to bend it to your will :-)

Can you ask your professor to send an email to [hidden email]; they should be able to set you up with access to these training materials. In trade we ask that you send any corrections to the email list here.

Re: uDIG : Some questions

Jérémie MARTINEZ
Thanks for your answers.

@Mauricio : Thansk for Javadoc. I'm not very familiar with Eclipse, so I didn't know it existed this functionnality. I have subscribed to the other mailing list, and I will write on it from now.

@Jody : Thanks. These tutorials would be most helpful. Do are they free  or we have to pay for them? Of course any correction or modification will be shared.

Re: uDIG : Some questions

Jody Garnett-2
The commercial training material are available as part of a five day course (udig-training is available from a number of organisations - talk to the PSC member in your region). LISAsoft has been running a number of courses both in Australian and overseas so the material is nice and up to date.

We have arranged for students to be able to access the materials (simply asking for a letter from their professor being sent to [hidden email]). We do this mostly to encourage research; and also because we have benefited from research like colour brewer.

Training is one of the few solid sources of income for the project; with each course directly resulting in improvements to the core. We are hoping with the move to git that other organisations will find it easier to take part (with their own business driver)
