Re: [ForestryTools] Forestry tools

Lee-3
Hey Abdoul,

My apologies for not responding sooner. We had a small flood here which affected a lot of my projects. It's definitely the forestry busy season.

Have you registered on the mailing list associated with this project? That might be a good place to start.

The short answer to your questions is that there's been very little movement on most of these tasks. For the most part, we were in the brainstorming stages and collecting various pieces of existing code when I dropped the ball. That said, it's been on my list to start this again this summer. I'm coming into some spare time, and I really want to push this forward. If you and I moved our conversation to the mailing list, we might be able to re-invigorate interest among the other participants as well.

Do you have any existing code from projects you've worked on that might help? Specifically anything in C++, Python, or that can be easily transferred over? WHat's your experience with QGIS and plugins?

Hi Lee,
 
I've had a glance on the table "Basic Development" on http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Talk:Forestry_Tools website. I would like to know who is leading which task and how to get into already set groups and how to move forward. For example, how to know whether the Data Entry task has been started and where the job done is on the track. I'm particularly interested on C1, C2 and D. I could help on others.

C1 Volume/Stand Calculations Develop functions to perform basic forestry calculations.
C2 Table Generation Use calculations to develop volume tables and stand tables for each stand or defined area.
C3 Report Generator Output information, tables, and figures into neat report.
D Data Entry Create system for data/inventory entry and recognition of possible outliers (errors).

I'm glad to see you're following the plugin discussions. Initially, I generated a bit of interest in developing some tools. The goal remains to develop a usable open-source alternative for forestry inventory and planning software within the QGIS community. The wiki has some information on our large-scale visioning:  http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Forestry_Tools. I spent some time trying to develop a community and some discourse around what was wanted or desired. Unfortunately, my time has been quite limited and no large-scale development has taken place. That said, I've generally developed personal utilities that i use within the R statistics environment. I'm in the process of migrating those tools over to Python so it might interface with QGIS.

In short, I'm beginning to take the project up again. What's your background in forestry? Do you currently use any utilities or have any personally built material that might dove-tail nicely with a QGIS forestry plugin?

Re: [ForestryTools] Forestry tools

Hey Abdoul,

Let's take this email to the list by responding/mailing to [hidden email]. I think some of the other individuals would take a lot of interest in our discussion which might spark some real movement this summer.

If you understand some of the Qt development and are working towards QGIS plugins, you're ahead of me. My experience is primarily on the web side of things, as well as R-scripting (a statistical package). Personally, I'm going to use this project to learn Qt/Python. From that standpoint, I'm hoping to be more of a soldier and less of a general on the gritty details of development.

One discussion we started early on was how we wanted to handle database management / store information. There were some of us that felt Spatialite might be a good introductory option, as it has less barriers of entry to users. That said, PostGIS is far more robust. In either case, I don't think anyone was really advocating for the use of straight databases/spreadsheets/shapefiles, but it might be wise to re-initiate that discussion.

What do you think? Moving forward, we want a platform on which we can create forestry tools for inventory collection, analysis, etc. What database system might mesh best with QGIS and provide the necessary platform?

There's also some different needs on the input/output side. Some of us work in traditional forestry and simply we need a way to define our inventory procedures, collect standard inventory information, and output tables and charts on the resources in those stands. Others work more on the planning, economics, or regulation side and need more robust GIS and planning features. That said, I think those of us still interested and engaged are primarily focused on the former opposed to the latter.

With that in mind I've got some **very** basic R-code for taking inventory data and turning it into tables and charts. I can move that to python for later development (task C1). Otherwise, I think your initial thought that A1 is probably the place to start.

Moving forward, it might also be wise for us to formalize the idea a little further by authoring and describing what we hope a minimal tool-set will achieve and look like. It might be far easier for us to pull in the appropriate tasks if we know exactly what we want.

Hi Lee,

Hope that the disaster is limited!

I already registered on the mailing list. I'm following closely what's going on. I would like to help to move  forward on the project.
Regarding your questions, I don't have any code available right now. For the moment, I'm trying to master QGIS plugin development using Qt that's I am familiar with. On the other hand I'm a trainer on QGIS as well GRASS GIS and I'm using these software in my daily business. In addition, I do have good experience on Database management and design. So the company that I created provides Free Software services (training, plugins development, ...etc). I can see that, the "forestry tools" will be of a great help for many people I think and there are many small companies here that could be interested in using Free Software if they can get solutions to their problems and save some $$$.

I don't know how to put things together according to the other people but I would like to suggest to start by designing the system for instance specifying what do we want as input, potential outputs so entities and relationships involved, etc? This could be based on A1 and D?! I think these two items could be good starting points even if we could move forward on other items. What do you think about it?

These are some information / thoughts that I wanted to share with you.

I wish you all the best and I know this is a forestry busy time :-) .


Warmest greetings,
Abdoul

Re: [ForestryTools] Forestry tools

Hi Lee,

I think that's a good idea to formalize the project further. I believe that we should start from what you already suggested regarding the different tasks. We can work from that starting point. Can you take the lead so everyone can add his (her) suggestions ? This will help obviously to get on truck and to make sure that we are moving on to the right direction.

I was wondering about the design of the software / system / plugin : e.g. building classes, inheritance, ...Or maybe it's to early?

In the meanwhile, I'll start looking at A1.

All the best

Re: [ForestryTools] Forestry tools

Lee-3
I'll play with the wiki page further over the holiday (memorial day) weekend. Hopefully that will give us a little bit more framework to move forward. I'll concentrate on a minimum for a usable tool that can be released, with the hope that will attract additional interest and participation in the project.

From my basic thought process I think that's:
A. Ability to enter data and link it to plots/stands.
B. Generate simple stand/stocking reports with a minimum set of options.

At a basic level, I'll leave software design decisions to those more capable than myself. In this effort, I'll make a far better soldier than a general. That said, I'm happy to provide more leadership on the design/use/project management side.

Abdoul, what's your familiarity with Python over C++? For QGIS plugins (our initial intention) Python is the way to go and offers better accessibility via the plugin installer. C++ may have some benefits, but would be a bit more difficult for the average user to install.

I’m also interested to learn python. I have experience of some prehistoric programming languages from 20 years ago. Do you know about some introduction manual to get a picture of the program and command structure of Python?

Thanks

Hi Jake,

As suggested by Max, "Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist" is the best choice. You can have a glance on these:

http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/
http://www.diveintopython.net/#download

Of course, you could look at python official website: http://python.org/

Hope this will help.
