The new uDig video tutorial series

The following comes from the udig-news blog, since I wrote it I will report it also here.

Today we activated a youtube channel for uDig:

Here we want to collect different video material about uDig.

Some members of the community have agreed on creating each week a new tutorial about any feature not yet described.

Need some examples?

Ever needed to change language of the gui?
Or maybe you are new to GIS and are wondering about how to load common gis data formats?
What about query data in uDig?

More advanced users might need to rasterize a shapefile or vectorize a raster?
Scientific users might want to get started with the Spatial toolbox to do some analyses, maybe start with the extraction of a watershed from a DEM?

Anyone can contribute to the channel and anyone can ask for a tutorial about a certain feature.
On this page information about ongoing tutorial production is kept.
If you need a tutorial about any uDig feature, check if it is not already listed there, and if it is not, join the mailinglist and ask kindly. :)

Geopaparazzi 3.2.5 is out - mostly fixes and localization

Well there have been a couple of bugfix release that didn't need any announcement, but for this one I think it is good to let you know.

One nice guy has added a French translation of the project to our crowdin translation platform. Thanks Fred whoever you are :) !

Please let me know if you are working on translations, I can cut a release for you to see how it results in the user interface.
Since we were there, we updated also the Italian translation.

On request of some users some infos were added to the notes and gps logs:

1) the notes now show also the lat/long of the point

2) the gps log properties now show the start and end timestamp

A major bug has been fixed when merging gps logs together. Now merging is safe:

Last but not least, the GPS indicator has been fixed. It has been reported to be a bit unstable on certain phones which resulted in being unable to record logs or notes.

Enoy and please report back any problem. Thanks!
