Both these editors have been significantly changed. This was a side effect of having changed the drawing system of Ilwis. The way the old editors worked could not maintained in the new system and so I had to redesign them from ground up. This proved to be a more time consuming job then I had anticipated. Particulary in the segment editor there were so many states and state transistions to be reckoned with that I sometimes had trouble determining the right course of action. Anyway, I think I now have a working editor for both pointmaps and segment maps.

Ifgi recently hosted Münster’s first HackDay to promote contributions to the nationwide “Apps4DE” competition. Between 40 and 60 hackers and thinkers from Münster met throughout the day to discuss “open data” and come up with ideas for Apps which demonstrate the use of public sector information. An opening presentation by Albert Remke was followed by a series of lightening talks about linked science, linked open data, map Apps and Augmented Reality. After several hours of brainstorming and hacking in small groups, the participants presented resulting ideas and small prototypes such as:
- Family and Recreation App
- App for Open Sensor Data
- Linked open data applications for the Bundestag members and their private activities in the market economy
Several participants also announced that they plan to submit their idea or App as a proposal to the “Apps4DE” competition. In the eyes of the particpants, the Münster HackDay – one in a series of Hackdays promoted by the Open Knowledge Foundation – proved to be a highly successful event!
Finally back after a long break. Happy new year to all.
Some people have voiced to me some concerns about my remarks about printing of maps in Ilwis 3.8. Or basically the lack of it. So I think it might be usefull if I explain a little bit better.
