[enviroCar-discuss] Shapefile download of track

Daniel Nüst
Hi enviroCar-Community,

I was asked if we can provide enviroCar tracks as ESRI shapefiles. Has
someone already done this?

I'm sure it is possible to leverage the ArcGIS-Online platform for it, and
it might be a nice feature for our platform as well [1].

A workflow that almost worked perfect for me was the following:

* Choose a track, e.g.
https://envirocar.org/api/stable/tracks/52714d4ee4b000fe0582a292
* Go to http://ogre.adc4gis.com/
* put URL in the form to the right and download shapefile [2]
* That's it!

The remaining issue is that the observed phenomena are not converted to
fields. Do we have an issue with GeoJSON compatibility here?

Anyway, hope this helps anyone, and let me know if you have a better
working procedure!

/Daniel

[2] This could even be automated since there is a POST API at
http://ogre.adc4gis.com/convertJson

There is a WPS for this:

http://geoprocessing.demo.52north.org:8081/enviroCar-wps/test.html

The EnviroCarDataTransformAlgorithm just needs the (complete) URL of the
track and can return a variety of formats, e.g. zipped shapefiles.

Cheers,

Benjamin

Good that I asked :-).

Thanks, this is perfect. We'll try to make that more accessible from the
website (add a small form on the data access page for example).
