Subject [jira] [Commented] (SIS-351) Create metadata, CRS and tabular data editors in JavaFX
Date Sat, 11 Mar 2017 17:38:04 GMT


Siddhesh Rane commented on SIS-351:

Hello [~desruisseaux], 
This issue references another issue [SIS-43|]
which was about creating a JavaFX GUI for SIS. Since this project would have to fit into that
one I tried searching for it but the javafx code base was totally empty.
Is there any work in progress that is yet to be merged in the SIS code base? Or are we free
to design a GUI for this issue from scratch?
I'm interested in taking up this project as part of gsoc.
I have prior knowledge of JavaFX, having worked with this toolkit since its version 2 and
followed the community activity at [] so I know of many useful libraries and
have used them for my purpose. You can evaluate some of my JavaFX apps at these github repos:
I'll soon create mockup fxml documents and send them to you while you clarify my doubts mentioned

> Creates the foundation of a GUI application for Apache SIS based on JavaFX. This application
should leverage the functionalities available in Apache SIS 0.8. In particular:
> * Read metadata from files in various formats (currently ISO 19139, GeoTIFF, NetCDF,
LANDSAT, GPX, Moving Features)
> * Get Coordinate Reference System from a registry or from GML or WKT definitions and
apply coordinate transformations.
> * Show vector data in a tabular format.
> Since SIS does not yet have a renderer engine, we can not yet show maps in the application.
However the application should be designed with this goal in mind.
> This project should create a metadata editor showing the ISO 19115 metadata. We should
provide a simplified view with only the essential information, and an advanced view showing
all information. The information to shown should be customizable. The user should be able
to edit the metadata and save them in ISO 19139 format.
> The project should also create the necessary widgets for showing a Coordinate Reference
System (CRS) definition and allow the user to edit it. Another widget should use the CRS definitions
for applying coordinate operations (map projections) using the existing Apache SIS referencing
engine, and show the result in a table with information about accuracy and domain of validity.
