Thanks to some good old Ominiverdi's friends we have set up a brand new site on Climate Analysis.
Their names are Valerio Capecchi and Alfonso Crisci.
This site offers a climate elaboration of daily meteo-data from GlobalSod dataset (README). Summaries provided are based on data exchanged under the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) World Weather Watch Program according to WMO Resolution 40 (Cg-XII).
All products available here are intended for free and unrestricted use in research, education, and other non-commercial activities.
As in Lausanne last year, Victoria FOSS4G will also have some Ominiverdi LiveCDs.
We'll produce a Ka-Map LiveCD but, as Doktoreas enhanced the customization process, the LiveCD production cycle has become more efficient.
It's our pleasure to announce that QGIS will have its own liveCD for its workshop and that Gary Sherman kindly donated to our project. His comment here: "Thanks for the great (and fast) work on the LiveCD and the customized QGIS CD. It works great and has everything needed for a successful workshop. "
The customization on the LiveCD, in this case, will allow the user to run both QGIS version 8.1 and the new Release Candidate for version 0.9. Both configurations will be able to access PostGIS Datasets as far as local datasets and WMS pre-configured server list. All that a dummy user needs to have ready to understand QGIS features.
QGIS liveCD is derived directly from our Desktop LiveCD 2007.1.
The Ominiverdi LiveCD Team is proud to announce the second release of their Desktop LiveCD.
This version, tagged as 2007.1, updates all software to their current versions and adds some changes/bugfixes.
More information can be found here:
We have also started a fund-raising goal of 400 Euros to help us continue with the project. With this money
we can increase bandwidth from our provider (who got about 450 download since the first release) and we can buy
additional hardware for our "LiveCD maker".
The fund-raising campaign ends on 30 September 2007, the target date for the release of the LiveCD Server Edition.
