Subject [jira] [Commented] (SIS-351) Create metadata, CRS and tabular data editors in JavaFX
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 11:26:41 GMT


Siddhesh Rane commented on SIS-351:

Hello [~desruisseaux] ,
I am still interested in this project primarily because of JavaFX which happens to be my favourite
GUI toolkit.
I was going to submit a draft in a few days. So far I was integrating GMapsFX (and side by
side investigating GluonMaps which also offers OpenStreetMaps) in a sample application, since
the web app doesnt have a functioning map.
Meanwhile I went through the code for the web app to see how to use the SIS library, but as
is documented on your wiki, it is difficult for a complete newbie like me to come up to speed
in geospatial data.
I am looking at online examples of metadata formats to understand what all columns should
be present in the UI tables.

But if you could refer to any tutorials or examples that would be very helpful

> 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.
