Subject [jira] [Commented] (SIS-43) GUI Client for SIS
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 14:53:44 GMT


Martin Desruisseaux commented on SIS-43:

Thanks a lot for your document, it is a nice start. There is some thoughts. Would it be possible
to elaborate a little bit on some of the following items please?

* What would be the target platform? JDK6, JDK7 or JDK8. JavaFX is available on all those
platforms but with different level of completeness. In particular, JavaFX on JDK8 has a tree-table
widget which does not exist on earlier versions. Such tree-table widget may be useful for
metadata display. Targeting JDK8 in order to get this widget would be fine for me, but if
so do you plan a something for previous platforms? Alternatives could be:
** Simulate tree-table widget on JDK7 and JDK6 by a classical tree widget on the left side
and a classical table on the right side, where the table shows the immediate children of the
selected tree node.
** Declare tree-table out-of-scope for pre-JK8 platforms.

* Metadata can be complex. A tree-table showing metadata may be considered as an "expert view".
Do you plan to design some simplified view showing just the essential information for non-experts?
That would probably be good for application adoption, but deciding what are the "essential"
information and how to present them are somewhat arbitrary and could be the subject of some
discussion on the mailing list.

* Which kind of data would be shown? Point, vectors or rasters? Those 3 kinds of data are
handled in different ways. SIS 0.4 does not have raster support yet.

* The document mentions map projection in some places. This part is dependent of the completion
of {{sis-referencing}} module in the given timeline, which is quite possible but still uncertain.
Is map projections something that we want to commit on?
