Cartography Team

This page was created to join forces for tasks that provide special skills:

Skills

Additional to general knowledge of geocordinates, any specific skills in handling the different geotools are of great benefit: Perl/Php4 coders are welcome as well as advanced users of xplanet, geosphere, KDE marble or even googleearth.

Joining this team shows that you are ready to help out with specific Debian related issues that are connected to the skills described above. Please, just write down your WikiName. If you wish to introduce yourself, you can use your HomePage.

Members

Currently, we create new maps whenever new schools pop up. This implies running some perl scripts on maintainer and rendering images by means of xplanet 0.9 from woody! An impression of our results can be seen at:

http://www.skolelinux.no/slschools/cartography.html

There are plans to move on to xplaner 1.x or even use different tools like KDE Marble, Earth3D/GoogleEarth, Geosphere or plain PHP+gd.

Current Tasks

  • Migrating from xplanet 0.9 to 1.x or any other alternative
    • old style: xplanet -night_image void -shade 100 -blend -radius 350 -latitude 62.2 -longitude 18.3 -markers -markerfile xplanet-markers.txt -image earthmap_hires.jpg -output skolelinux-scandinavia.png
    • new style: {{{ xplanet -radius 350 -latitude 62.2 -longitude 18.3 -config xplanet.conf -date 20060622.120000 -num_times 1 -output skolelinux-scandinavia.png
