Synchro server Christmas break

The synchro server that survives among my room's dust will be off-line between 25 December 2009 and 10 January 2010. If you try to use the synchronization service in that period, you'll get a message similar to:

As I have been very nice for the last twelve months, I'm sure Saint Nicholas will bring me some cool new feature ;)

The Tellus project has been briefly presented in the 5th international gvSIG conference as scheduled on Thursday 3 December 2009 at 4 pm at the Convention Center in Feria Valencia (Spain). More details here. As an example, this video shows how a remote PostGIS database can be effectively updated from a Linux-based mobile device:

You can now test the new synchronization feature also in your Ubuntu or Windows desktop PC/laptop/netbook - and of course on your Freerunner (Linux/Openmoko) or Nokia N800/N810 (Linux/Maemo). Download your installer now!

Ubuntu (tested on 8.04 and Kubuntu 9.04, also for netbooks)

Linux/Openmoko for Freerunner/GTA02 (tested on SHR)

Linux/Maemo (tested on Nokia N810)

Windows XP/Vista (tested on both)

This is what you will be able to do:

Start video of version 0.1.5 on Ubuntu

Here is a diagram describing a test on mobile devices:

Linux-only test on a PC

This video shows both the client app and the server app running on a Linux PC (Kubuntu 9.04). Also, there is a map server running on top of the PostGIS database, so the changes can be immediately seen with a WMS client:

Demos on mobile devices coming soon ;)

Implementing a FODB vector driver in gvSIG Mobile

One of the biggest advantages of the architecture proposed and implemented by Manu is that gvSIG Mobile provides an API that can be accessed via HTTP by any application (in this case the Openmis client application).

Another possibility is to add the Openmis client as part of gvSIG Mobile (ideally as an extension) so the overall architecture is simpler. I have done this with my gvSIG Mobile for Openmoko version. You can see here how it's done. Click to see large image:
