gvSIG 2.0: some tricks with folders

wizard_penguin In the last posts dedicated to the news of gvSIG 2.0 we have seen how we can create new symbols libraries or thematic maps. In both cases gvSIG stores information in folders.

Let’s see some tricks to the most restless users (and careful).

Deleting a symbols library

Symbols are stored by default in user folder /gvSIG/plugins/org.gvsig.app/Symbols.

Searching this folder we’ll see a subfolder for each symbols library installed in gvSIG. By default it only shows “gvSIG basic” that’s the symbols library that comes with basic installation of gvSIG 2. If you have installed other libraries as Google, OSM, OCHA, … you’ll find a subfolder for each one.

If you want to delete one of them and it is not shown in your gvSIG, it is so easy as delete the subfolder.

This could be very useful when creating our own symbols libraries and we want to test if we can delete it easily.

Joining two symbols libraries

Imagine you want to join two symbols libraries in one or, for example, add a part of the symbols of a library in other. Well, is so easy as copy the content of one in the other. When opening again gvSIG, it will read the new organization of folders/symbols and will show it in the symbology manager.

Deleting a thematic map

In gvSIG 2.0 thematic maps are stored by default inside user folder gvSIG/plugins/org.gvsig.educa.thematicmap.app.viewer/thematicMaps.

Here we find a list of all thematic maps we have been creating and  are available in gvSIG. We’ll find a subfolder for each thematic map created. This subfolder will content two files, a .info and a .gvsthm. To delete a thematic map just delete the corresponding subfolder.

  1. My relatives all the time say that I am wasting my time here at web,
    but I know I am getting experience everyday by reading thes
    nice articles.

  2. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr…
    well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  3. I think the admin of this web page is genuinely working hard in favor of his web page, as here every data is quality
    based data.

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and
    am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
    import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  5. Hi everyone, it’s my first pay a visit at this web page,
    and piece of writing is actually fruitful in favor of me, keep up posting such posts.

  6. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to
    be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to
    you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
