Enhancing discovery of geospatial datasets in data repositories
This project closes the gap between geospatial data formats and repositories and similarity measurements. Or group extended an existing Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) - Zenodo - with the functionality to retrieve and view similar records. This comprises both the API and UI, namely providing an HTTP endpoint to retrieve an ordered list of records based on a provided record and displaying similar records.
Zenodo - Installation:
Here you can find our Zenodo-Repository:
For Zenodo installation, please follow the instructions below:
(Who wants to save time, should not try it under Windows. On Linux its much faster and easier
After installation execute:
pip install -e .
Now you can open
http://localhost:5000/. There you can create your own profile and upload files.
If you have installed our version of zenodo you can find the integrated extractTool in your virtual enviroment in /Envs/zenodo/lib/python2.7/site-packages/extractTool
This installation was previously tested only with Linux, but should also work under Windows.
Installation Description (PyPi)
pip install extractTool
(you can write this command in your console and follow the installation description on the webside OR you can download the file and install the CLI tool local: )
Installation Description (local)
pip for pip install is required.
After downloading our Tool from PyPi To run our CLI tool, the following file must be executed in the project folder:
pip install -r requirements.txt --user (or sudo pip install -r requirements.txt)
In this file all required plugins are listed, which we use in our tool.
Because sometimes there are some problems with the installation you must follow these next steps:
First, ensure you have gdal installed. I just run the following:
sudo apt-get install libgdal1i libgdal1-dev libgdal-dev
To get the version that apt-get provided you please run:
For example I get 2.2.3 so my pygdal version will be 220.127.116.11. (but replace the version with your version)
pip install pygdal==18.104.22.168
If you get some error you may look here
pip install pytest
Then you can navigate in any common console in the folder of the tool ("extractTool") and there, the following command must be executed
python extractTool.py --path='[filepath]' --detail=[bbox|convexHull] --time
filepath you must insert a filepath to your testdata
--bbox ← for the bounding box of the file/folder (set as default)
--convexHull ← to get all the covexHull of the file/folder
--time ← (optionally) You can add this parameter to get additionally the timeextend
python extractTool.py --path='/home/maxmusterman/test1.geojson' --detail=bbox --time python extractTool.py --path='/home/maxmusterman/test2.nc' --detail=convexHull python extractTool.py --path='/home/maxmusterman/testdict' --time
