The gvSIG Association will participate at FOSS4G-EU in Guimaraes (Portugal), from July 16th to 20th 2018, giving several workshops and presentations.
There will be presentations about different themes:
- gvSIG Crime: Open source GIS for criminology
- LIBRA, a regional platform for managing requests for the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)
- gvSIG Suite: a complete catalog of open source software solutions
- Analysis of an antenna coverage for an emergency communication system
- 4D in gvSIG: New capabilities to explore time data
- gvSIG Desktop: written in Java, extendable through Scripting
- Geopaparazzi state of the art of the digital field mapping application
- Modelling natural hazards in gvSIG with the HortonMachine plugins
- gvSIG 2.4 new features
The workshops that will be given are:
GIS applied to municipality management (Monday, July 16th, from 9:00 to 13:00):
Participants will learn about how to use the main functionalities of gvSIG to manage the information of a municipality, for example editing, geoprocessing, or how to connect to the information offered by many of the public administrations through web servers, among other things. We will also show the main functionalities of gvSIG Mobile, and how to connect to gvSIG Online, an integral platform for Spatial Data Infrastructures implementation.
Developing new tools with gvSIG Scripting (Monday, July 16th, from 14:00 to 18:00):
In this workshop, we will introduce the participants into the basics to develop new plugins for gvSIG Desktop. We will explain all the parts involved, from coding to publishing. We will mainly use the Scripting Composer tool that it’s installed with any installation of gvSIG.
As a example project for the workshop, a new script will be developed. Starting from zero, the general API of gvSIG will be explained and the basics to develop over it with Jython. This project will be created in a way that later could be added to the icons or geoprocess toolbox in gvSIG. It will contain two parts, the code part with the process and the interface part developed with Abeille.
Modelling natural hazards in gvSIG with the HortonMachine plugins (Friday, July 20th, from 9:00 to 13:00):
The workshop will cover the main aspects of the hydro-geomorphological analysis of a river basin starting from a DTM. The aim is to evaluate the maximum discharge that can occur in a section for given precipitation or using statistical information derived from the Intensity Duration Curves. Some generic geomorphological analysis on the DTM will be performed that will be used to delineate the stream network and the watershed closed at the desired section.
The last step will be the evaluation of the hillslope stability and of the maximum discharges using the shallow stability model Shalstab and the semi distributed model Peakflow integrated in the HortonMachine library.
Geopaparazzi and gvSIG: never out of data in the field (Friday, July 20th, from 14:00 to 18:00):
The workshop is dedicated to professionals, researchers and students that needs to collect data from the field and use this information to update or create GIS data, but also to OpenStreetMappers as well as tourists that want to keep a geo-diary.
The workshop starts with an introduction of the application, installation and main features. Then a short section will be dedicated to the preparation of the input data: background maps and vector layers. Following these sections there is a practical testing of Geopaparazzi outdoor in the field. The last section, back in the room, is dedicated to the export of the collected data to be visualized or used in a GIS format using gvSIG.

See you in Portugal!!
