Is the widely pushed OGC Geopackage (GPKG)(http://www.geopackage.org/) ready for daily use – also as a replacement for the good old Shapefile as an exchange-format ? While QGIS already supports Geopackage (including direct editing) quite well for some time, the format starts to grow up in the ESRI environment. Some good news with ArcGIS Pro 1.4 …
Sport watches like the Garmin Swim or Forerunner-series are widely used. As a Linux-User, I was facing the „problem“ how to get the data on the PC from my Garmin swim (and to GarminConnect) … there are a lot of solutions around on the internet (some very old ones) – the following workflow works fine for me to get the data on the PC and upload it to GarminConnect.
Fooling around with QGIS (v 2.18) global program-settings, I found some interesting setting. It allows the user to copy geo-features directly from the table to the clipboard as GeoJSON (geom + attributes). So, no „export to…“ etc. is needed.
Back to the Future: Using a DEC VT220 from 1983
I bought an actual serial terminal. It is many years older than I am, and can display 24 lines by 80 (or 132) colums of text.
My workflow is quite terminal centric: Work for Uni is done with
ssh, emails are read with
ncmpcpp provides the front end to my music. If it weren’t for the Internet, I’d ditch the display server without batting an eye.
Nachdem ArcGIS Pro von ESRI erwachsen wird und sukzessive vermehrt im GIS-Alltag zum Einsatz kommt, anbei ergänzend zur Serie zur Anwendung bestmöglicher Transformationsparameter zwischen dem österreichischen Bundesmeldenetz und WGS84/ETRS89 die Implementierung dieser in ArcGIS Pro (Stand Version 1.3.1).
Ever wanted to combine two WAN connections for faster* internet? I do, for torrenting. And I scripted it.
On the Web, you’ll easily find „tutorials“ that just give you some bash script you have to painstakingly modify for it to run. This is as simple as it gets! But see for yourself! (code at the end of this post)
Now the next step on our route for the guidepost standard is creating a schema to validate the Guidepost-JSON-Standard for the Tiroler Wander- und Bergwegekonzept.
