New repository for gvSIG Scripts

We open a new section at the gvSIG Outreach website to be used as a repository for gvSIG scripts [1] , allowing to consult examples, search by categories [2] and value every script. This repository is born with the objective to be fed in an easy way by the community, allowing users who want to participate to upload [3] their scripts directly.

As it is known, one of the new features in the version 2 of gvSIG is an environment for development and running of scripts that interact with the application. These scripts allow us to automate small tasks or add functionalities that we need.

The language that has been chosen from the gvSIG project to support scripting is Jython, that is an implementation of the Python language that is run in the Java virtual machine (JVM). It allows to be integrated with gvSIG completely.

Beyond the utility of each script, join to the guide for developers [4], this repository will be a compendium of examples that will allow the users that are interested in them to learn to develop their own scripts. 

For loading the scripts that are available at the repository in gvSIG you can consult the following video [5].

Slashgeo is a proud media partner of the 9th International gvSIG Conference

This year again Slashgeo will be a proud media partner of the 9th International gvSIG Conference to be held from November 27th to 29th in Valencia, Spain.

From their objectives: "So what does this have to do with technology? Everything! In the XXI century, can anyone imagine technology as not part of strategic sectors? There is practically no activity or progress, whether industrial, social or within the business environment where technology is not a fundamental aspect. In this sense, and by following the example of where sovereignty lies, whether with the people or within the financial markets, what we need to ask ourselves is whether we govern technology or if technology governs us. [...] We are again talking about the need of having access to knowledge, and when it comes to software, knowledge is only possible if we are talking about free software, which provides us with technological independence, which enables us to at least aspire to be Sovereign. It is a Matter of Sovereignty, which is the main idea that we are claiming in the 9th International gvSIG Conference in Valencia."
