noob questions (considering doing Florida)
« on: December 15, 2015, 10:33:54 AM »

I'm looking to download these: https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData/tree/master/chm_final/usafl
How do I do this? Is there a way to open them in QGIS?

Open them in a text editor. They should be pretty self-explanatory from there.

Although I think rickmastfan67 is still working on FL, with development pretty far along. It's one that's been in-dev a long time, similar to CA.

If you have some level of comfort with things like source code control, I'd recommend cloning the repository to your local computer.  You could then create branches and submit pull requests, things like that.

We can also point you to some of the development tools, like the waypoint editor (still at CHM, we need one of our own).  Assuming someone else has, if not I'll PM some info to you.

How do I bulk download them? Maybe I can figure out how to convert them to KML.

1. could clone the repository to your own system, then you have everything

2. could use the "Download zip" at https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData

both would get you all of our data, not just usafl.  If you want just those, email me and I can send you just that system.

Probably a question for the previous developer(s) of the routes: are the .wpts in good enough shape that if .csv files were created, we could get these into the TM system as a development system?  Then NE2 and others could easily browse them in the HB at least to see what's there so far.

AFAIK there is a vanilla CSV, and the _con.CSV is missing.
I don't know anything about the state of the .WPT files.
However, James is still maintaining Florida, right?
