Live Protocol from the 2nd Marble sprint in Prague. Saturday, 2012-10-20
Legend T: task I: information S: suggestion
* I: __Server__ needed for satellite tiles, routing data, osm vector data * I: Format/data need of osm vector data yet unknown * I: current routing data is about 30 GB, RAM > 2 GB would be ideal for conversion * I: No existing KDE server available, __funding__ needed * T: Approach KDE e.v. and ask for funding to get started * T: Ask community for funding (permanent possibility, e.g. donations via the website, optional payed (donate) versions of mobile apps) * T: Determine organizational needs of funding (own account? sub-account of KDE e.v. possible?) * I: OsGEO might be an alternative as well * PR/Marketing: How to make users and developers aware of Marble? * I: Communications with people on fairs suggests that Marble is still quite unknown * I: Articles (e.g. ct, ix), more presence on fairs would help * T: Redo the edu.kde.org/marble front page, update wikis (wikipedia openstreetmap) * I: kde-edu website is not ideal for our purpose (too much distraction in the header) * S: Place content on marble-globe.org and keep only kde edu specific parts on kde-edu.org/marble * T: Low hanging fruits: Open .kmz, .gpx * T: Different user-agent strings for mobile versions * T: Generate a list of papercuts (and fix them)
* Marble + Automotive: Online at [] * OpenGL: Current state in github opengl branch * Foursquare: Current state in sok-2012 branch, to be merged * InterGeo * Satellites Plugin
Events / Student Programs
* Student Programs * GCI 2012 * I: Rules changed. No more money for students, task length always 2 hours * T: Move junior jobs wiki page to separate issues in projects.kde.org * T: Collect ideas as issues in projects.kde.org * Socis 2012 * I: Nearly finished, great results * GSOC 2013 * I: Feature Freeze (soft: 2012-10-25, hard: 2012-11-08) * T: Merge branches * Fairs/Events
* Use Case: Partial Map Import/Export * e.g. storing the visible region of the map shape in an odf file and opening it on a different system without Internet access * S: Possible implementation: Tile pyramid, .kml creation, merge into .kmz file. Remark: Not easy to implement * S: Possible alternative: Tile pyramid, store tiles with odf file, insert tiles into local cache on opening .odf again * Notification of all data being loaded/available * e.g. to create a snapshot, print a map * S: as a workaround (hack) one could monitor the download queue to become empty (this approach has obvious problems) * Data * GPS Data Model * T: Proper representation of tracks with timestamps, speed, accuracy in KML * T: Export of tracks to .gpx (keeping all useful information from GPS devices) * API for Vector Model * Shapefiles (shp) * Access to GeoData Model * KMZ * Importing Data * Tiles * Threaded TileLoading * Blending Extension * Embedding Tiles into Document * Layers * Interactive Layers * Layers in CreateMap Wizard * Runners * Rendering * Vector Rendering * Render on Done * OpenGL * Marble Clock (Timers!) * Android, Mobile support * Docs + Examples * Build System * Feature summary in cmake runs * Option to build examples * Coding Style * Use Cases: Travel * Search * "Around" vs. global * OverviewMap * not only planet wide but also local overview
