Benchmarking 2011 IRC Meetings

  • Wed July 27th, 2011 @ [log: http://logs.qgis.org/foss4g/%23foss4g.2011-07-27.log]
    • attendance:
      • Dane Springmeyer - Mapnik
      • Jeff McKenna - MapServer
      • Pirmin Kalberer - QGIS mapserver
      • Mike Smith - Hardware / MapServer / Oracle MapViewer
      • Martin Daly - Cadcorp GeognoSIS
    • Summary
      • OSM styling discussion
        • Mapnik will write a script to parse existing osm mapfile
        • GeognoSIS will use existing SLDs
        • mpdaly noted that some tables lack ID field (QGIS complains about this)
        • jmckenna suggested running a psql command to add OIDs to all tables
        • springmeyer looking for some cached tiles of the style to use
        • QGIS Server is currently implementing the OSM style
    • Actions
      • jmckenna: contact GeoServer/Gabriel about status
      • jmckenna: contact Constellation-SDI about status
      • mdsmith: activate windows on BM server
      • mdsmith: contact Oracle MapViewer team about status
      • all: continue styling of OSM data (see examples here)



  • Wed February 16th, 2011 (log: http://logs.qgis.org/foss4g/%23foss4g.2011-02-16.log)
    • attendance:
      • Dane Springmeyer - Mapnik
      • Jeff McKenna - MapServer
      • Alex Wong - ERDAS
      • Pirmin Kalberer - QGIS mapserver
      • Mike Smith - Hardware / MapServer / Oracle MapViewer
    • Summary
      • final presentation discussion
        • springmeyer and jmckenna to submit abstract for presentation today or tomorrow
        • aaime sent message to jmckenna urging the use of the mailing list more by all teams
      • data sources discussion
        • springmeyer pointed out that some generalizing occurs with the osm2ogsql tool
        • springmeyer suggests 3 types of OpenStreetMap tests: data in shapefile (cloudmade extracts), data in PostGIS (osm2pgsql), and then a "best effort" (data in any format)
        • pirmin_k noted that osm2pgsql tool does not work well for QGIS
      • testing process discussion
        • covered in data discussion above

  • Wed February 9th, 2011 (log: http://logs.qgis.org/foss4g/%23foss4g.2011-02-09.log)
    • attendance:
      • Marco Hugentobler - QGIS mapserver
      • Jeff McKenna - MapServer
      • Gabriel Roldan - GeoServer
      • Alex Wong - ERDAS
      • Mike Smith - Hardware / MapServer / Oracle MapViewer
      • Martin Daly - Cadcorp
    • Summary
      • data sources discussion
        • teams voted in support of using OpenStreetMap data for Colorado for vector
        • for raster, mpdaly suggests using DEMs
          • mdsmith suggests USGS Seamless NED or NAIP, and he also gets snowpack data daily
      • testing process discussion
        • teams support the plan to test only best effort, with data in format of your choice, but data must retain original detail (no generalizing)
        • continued discussion on testing tilecaching by servers...with the goal being to enhance how each server handles labelling on tiles

  • Wed February 2nd, 2011 (log: http://logs.qgis.org/foss4g/%23foss4g.2011-02-02.log)
    • attendance:
      • Marco Hugentobler - QGIS mapserver
      • Mike Smith - Hardware / MapServer / Oracle MapViewer
      • Alex Wong - ERDAS
      • Daniel Morissette - MapServer
      • Martin Daly - Cadcorp
      • Jeff McKenna - MapServer
    • Summary
      • data sources discussion
        • unknown if suggested SPOT imagery can be distributed freely to the public
        • we should probably use local Denver/Colorado data
        • possibility of using U.S. Census TIGER data for Colorado
        • the benchmarking exercise in 2009 used TIGER data for Texas
        • mpdaly suggests using OpenStreetMap data
        • sample styling of MapServer using OSM data for Colorado already exists: map on http://www.mapserver.org/trunk/
      • testing process discussion
        • marco suggested that we have separate tests for point/line/poly, in addition to other tests
        • all teams voted to accept that we would only present a subset of the tests (we will decide what subset to use later)
        • mdsmith suggests testing tilecache seeding for each server...testing how the server's labeling engine handles edges of tiles

  • Wed January 12th, 2011 (log: http://logs.qgis.org/foss4g/%23foss4g.2011-01-12.log)
    • attendance:
      • Andrea Aaime - GeoServer
      • Jeff McKenna - MapServer
      • Pirmin Kalberer - QGIS mapserver
      • Marco Hugentobler - QGIS mapserver
      • Mike Smith - Hardware / MapServer / Oracle MapViewer
      • Anne-Sophie Collignon - Erdas
      • Daniel Morissette - MapServer
      • Adrian Custer - Undetermined
      • Andreas Schmitz - Deegree
      • Martin Daly - Cadcorp
      • Jean-Francois Faudi - Data
      • Ivan Sanchez - Vocals
    • Summary
      • acuster: relayed that ESRI is still discussing internally about commitment
      • mdsmith: servers are now in our new datacenter and in racks. they are on ups + standby generator
      • discussion on data sources
        • jeffaudi: can supply 100 tiles of 1GB GeoTIFF imagery (SPOT)
      • all agreed data and styles need to be prepared soon
      • suggestion that testing methodology needs to be redesigned
      • teams will be allowed to join the exercise late, but must follow the rules of engagement (they can propose changes, but teams are not required to follow)
