wxgrass Location Wizard scroll issue in EPSG code selection

Markus Neteler
Hi,

[have added a makefile to gui/wxpython/ to have it automatically
installed if Python available]

I am testing the nice location wizard. There is a scroll issue
when searching in the EPSG DB for codes:

- "Search in code description":
   enter "UTM"

The list lacks a scroll bar... (in essence two scroll bars: one for x,
one for y direction). Since I cannot resize the location wizard window,
I cannot really navigate there.

Could this be fixed?

thanks
Markus

An additional wish for the EPSG browser of the Location wizard:

- either sort numerically by code (currently it seems to be string sorted)
- and/or enable sort-by-column through clicking on the column name

thanks

Thanks for testing this and the suggestions. I'm having to write on grant proposals over the next week and classes start right afterwards. But I'll try to steal some time to look into this. Are all three of these issues related to the EPSG page?

Yes, that's right: all related to the EPSG page. See also

Full tickets list at (there are a few more for Python):

Maybe a link to http://spatialreference.org/ could be included.

A extra button: "Look-Up your EPSG-code on the web". This button could
link to the above mentioned address.
Also a explanation why or what the EPSG-code is good for (the Mapserver
docs have nice examples) would be nice.
Many migrating users would never have heard of EPSG...

Kind regards,
Timmie

A nice idea, albeit subject to volatility of some else's website.
Link the button to something we control like a page GRASS's wiki or
OSGeo's wiki or grass's osgeo web pages? Then old versions don't have
hardcoded deal links one day.

mouse-over tooltip?
