GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 10 ‘How to convert cartography from CAD to GIS’

The video of the tenth module is now available, in which we will show how to load and manage cartography in CAD format on gvSIG.

Many municipalities have their geographic information in CAD format, and in many cases there’s an only file for the whole municipality that contains all type of information, such as power lines, parcels, drinking water system, sewage system…, each one in a different layer.

It sometimes makes it difficult to manage, even we have to divide the municipality into sheets to manage that information, where we lose information of our municipality as a group. In that case, to make queries, calculations…, we would have to open the different files.

Adding new colour tables in gvSIG Desktop, more options to represent our data

The colour tables are used in gvSIG Desktop to represent both raster data (for example, a Digital Elevation Model) and vector data (they can be applied in legends such as unique values or heat maps). By default gvSIG Desktop has a small catalog of colour tables. But most of the users don’t know that it’s very easy to add new colour tables. Do you want to see how easy it is? Continue reading

Cambiando el ‘look and feel’ de gvSIG Desktop en un par de pasos

GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 9 ‘Hyperlink’

The video of the ninth module is now available, in which we will show how to work with hyperlinks in gvSIG.

This tool allows us to associate images, text files, pdf files, folders, web pages … to the geometries of our vector layer. For that we must have one or more fields in the attribute table of that shapefile in which we will have the file or folder paths or the web page URL.

When we create the field for the paths it’s important to indicate a large size (for example 200 characters), since if we link to a very long path and the field length is smaller, that path will be cut and you will not find the linked element.

This functionality will be very useful to show reviews, pictures, reports … of our geographical entities.
