TerraAmazon 4.6.3 – Release Notes

 

- Released on December 16, 2016 -

 

 

1. Overview

 

TerraAmazon 4.6.3 is an update of the previous version. It presents several fixes from both TerraAmazon.

In total, 31 changes were made (19 bug fixes on TerraAmazon; 12 bug fixes on the DPI plugin). Only the main changes are listed below.

TA463 Fixes
TA463 DIP Fixes

Note: when using PostGis, only versions up to 1.5 are compatible with TerraAmazon until now.

 

 

2. Migration

 

 

 

Database version of TerraAmazon 4.6.3: 4.4.0
When upgrading from TerraAmazon 4.4.0 or higher to this new version 4.6.3, no conversion is needed.
However, when migration from any other version prior to 4.4.0, a database conversion will be required. This automatic procedure affects the entire database at once with no possibility of recovering to the previous state of the database. Due to this characteristic, it is highly recommended to backup the database and test the resulting backup file before running a conversion.

 

 

 

 

3. Changes  

 

3.1 Fixes 

 

3.1.1 External  Theme  
The preview interface was not drawing vector data.

3.1.8 Read Pixel

Add tool Read Pixel to TerraAmazon main interface

3.1.9 Connected Views

In the Connected Views interface, sort the Views list alphabetically.

 TerraAmazon 4.4.3 – Release Notes

 

- Released on February 11, 2014 -

 

1. Overview

 


TerraAmazon 4.4.3 is an update of the previous version. It presents several fixes from both TerraAmazon and the DPI plugin.
In total, 122 changes were made (22 enhancements & 60 bug fixes on TerraAmazon, 7 enhancements & 33 bug fixes on the DPI plugin). Only the main changes are listed below.
TA443 Enhancements
TA443 Fixes
TA443 DPI Enhancements
TA443 DPI Fixes
Note: when using PostGis, only versions up to 1.5 are compatible with TerraAmazon until now.

 


2. Migration

 


Database version of TerraAmazon4.4.3: 4.4.0
When upgrading from TerraAmazon 4.4.0 or higher to this new version 4.4.3, no conversion is needed.
However, when migration from any other version prior to 4.4.0, a database conversion will be required. This is an automatic procedure that affects the entire database at once with no possibility of recovering to the previous state of the database. Due to this caracteristic, it is highly recomended to backup the database and test the resulting backup file before running a conversion.

The Multi Layer Intersection operation was crashing the system and now it has been fixed.
3.2.2 Attribute Table Maintenance

3.1.2 Dissolve Output Geometries on the classification process
Now it is possible to dissolve polygons resulting from the classification process in the moment that they are stored on the output layers. Polygons will be dissolved if they have the same class, belong to the same cell and are made by the same user working on the same process. This allows the system to keep track of who has made each polygon.
3.1.3 User Tag on output polygons
Now it is possible to name who has made each polygon comming out of the classification process. This information is carried on by the task_id column which is now created in the output layers in the moment of the valitation on the Rules Control.

When migrating a database created with previous versions of TerraAmazon, a database conversion is required. This is an automatic procedure that affects the entire database at once with no possibility of recovering to the previous state of the database. Due to this caracteristic, it is highly recomended to backup the database and test the resulting backup file before running a conversion.


3. Changes


3.1 Enhancements


3.1.1 Advanced Non-Interactive Classification
Now it is possible to associate classes from the input layer with the existing classes on the active project before running the Non-Interactive Classification. The previous method is still available and allows the classification of all the geometries as one selected class from the ones existing on the active project.
3.1.2 Themes as Input for Non-Interactive Classification
Now it is possible to use a theme as input to this process, which creates new possibilities when using themes with restrictions.

3.1.12 Split Geometry Implemented
Now it is possible to split a geometry during vectorial edition by drawing a line where to shape the cut.
3.1.13 Data Import now with Encoding option
Now it is possible to import a vector data that has a different encoding then the one set for the database. The Import Data.

3.1.15 Creation of Cell Layer now with Country box
Now it is possible to create a cell layer with the box size of a selected country. This option is not yet implemented for all the countries in the world.
3.1.16 Size of the Class Field on the Main Interface was Increased

3.1.17 Rule Management with two useless steps removed
Now when a cell column is created using the Rules Management interface, it is already defined as the effective cell column of the layer.
3.1.18 Process Control Date Filter remodeled
The date filter had confusing options "false" or "true". Now it was remodeled to a checkbox "Show Blocked". Also, the previous filter was not working properly, now it has been fixed.
3.1.19 Rules Control- Validation
Now the validation in the Rules Control also checks the sequence of the existing geometries (in case there are any in the output layers).
3.1.20 Information Cursor- Staked Polygons
Now the Information Cursor provides the information of every poligon stricked by the mouse click, including the staked polygons, which sometimes were impossible to reach with the previous version of the tool.


3.2 Fixes
