TCCD: Meeting, bugfixes

Meeting to prioritize bugs; fixed a bug with footnotes pointed out by GL; tried to fix another quickly but the fix seems to be incomplete. More time for this after the Keats is handled.

TCCD: wrote utility transform for issue 99

I think this is working, but it needs thorough testing, and then it can be run as part of an ant task (so that we can be sure to apply it only to the TEI files).

BreezeMap: abstracted strings, added onloaded hook

Added the hook for running a function after the HolLayer has been created, as tested with the Landscapes maps, and also abstracted most of the caption strings to properties in the hol namespace near the top of the file; that's not the ideal way to do this, but it's better than having them sit in the code until I come up with something better.

TCCD site rebuild, schemas, fixes for errors

Polished off a couple of simple tickets from the repo and commented on a few more; tried a build of the data, but many errors, so:

  • Made milestone[@type='unknown'] allowed but warned against, rather than invalid, so I could get over a bunch of half-finished documents.
  • Fixed a bunch of encoding errors such as missing private URI prefixes.
  • Wrote some Schematron to catch table encoding errors; up to now, we've relied on the VNU validator to catch unbalanced cells/rows at HTML validation time, but that's inefficient, so I've done something which should at least catch obvious errors right in the XML.
  • Fixed some broken table code.
  • Rebuilt and uploaded the site.

TCCD: Undoing iframes

The designer had embedded the OpenLayers map directly in the home page using an iframe, which of course borked all the document links. I've now fixed that, although I'm not 100% happy with how it's working; I still need to find a way to maximize the use of space in the standalone version. Meanwhile, lots of troubleshooting for the two remote workers with Oxygen. Not being able to train people directly is problematic.

VPN & English 500

Got the list of students and poems from AC and built the teaching package. I optimize it a bit every time I do it. Will test the download in the lab tomorrow.

BreezeMap: extra layers

I've found a few good resources for map tiles.
The CRD takes aerial photos every two years and makes them available as WMS layers. Add 2015 to an OL4 map:

//CRD
        layerCRD = new ol.layer.Tile({
          //extent: extent,
          source: new ol.source.TileWMS({
            url: 'https://mapservices.crd.bc.ca/arcgis/services/Ortho2015/MapServer/WMSserver',
            //crossOrigin: 'anonymous',
            params: {
              'LAYERS': '5',
              'FORMAT': 'image/png',
              'SRS': 'EPSG:3857'
            },
            serverType: 'mapserver'
          })
        });

The BC Government also provides aerial/satelite tiles

layerBCWMS = new ol.layer.Tile({
          //extent: extent,
          source: new ol.source.TileWMS({
            url: 'https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/lzt/ows/',
            crossOrigin: 'anonymous',
            params: {
              'LAYERS': '140',
              'FORMAT': 'image/png',
              'SRS': 'EPSG:3857'
            },
            serverType: 'mapserver'
          })
        });

and map tiles, too

layerBC = new ol.layer.Tile({
          source: new ol.source.XYZ({
            url: 'http://maps.gov.bc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/province/web_mercator_cache/MapServer/tile/{z}/{y}/{x}',
            numZoomLevels: 18,
            maxZoom: 17
          })
        });

Licensing is (as of October 2017) quite liberal.
