Tracker: Chart Feature Requests

By far the largest group of feature requests are related to Charts.
We need to try to reduce this number to something more manageable, by eliminating duplicates, consolidating, and closing ones that are no longer relevant. These titles will also be revised to provide more meaningful sort by Summary. Everyones help/comments on individual items in this thread and in tracker will be appreciated. Please review the items you posted. Also VOTE, which are the top 5 chart items? Top 10 chart items? We need to focus programming effort on only important items, your vote will help.

Re: Tracker: Chart Feature Requests

I think 361 & 740 are asking for the same thing (see below). Although 740 wants the ability to do it for a specific region. OK by me (361 was mine).

In response to nohal's comment on 740, yes, that is kinda how it is supposed to work, but it only ingests as many as it can before it times out. So, you have to run it over and over if you have many ENCs. I finally gave up trying to get it to finish mine last time I tried (many months ago, so someone correct me if that has changed).

To recap for those who don't want to go read the links above:

FS-361:
Batch "ingest" for ENC charts.

I would be fine with even a command line to allow batch ingest of all ENC charts in a directory or directory structure.

This would allow for disk space planning, as well as speeding up scrolling around.

FS-740:
I'd like to be able to run a script that would pre-digest charts for a given place and zoom level, or region.

nohal's comment:
Already possible to some extent with the -unit_test_1 command line switch (see Troubleshooting | Official OpenCPN Homepage). If you organize your charts to a folder structure that reflects your needs, it will do pretty much exactly what you ask for.

Thanks Dan, Which one should we close? (I changed both tasks).

Re: Tracker: Chart Feature Requests

"Chart" Task "Summary"s have been edited and reorganized. There are 23 Charts Tasks listed in Opncpn Feature Requests. Please review and comment. Close all tasks that are completed. Consolidate. VOTE for the 5 most important. This is way too much for the programmers to handle realistically.
