Visitors to the old site bunjilfw.appspot.com will see a message with the new location. This won’t be maintained but kept for testing.
Improved usability for managing cells and configuring the view.
Managing Monitored Cells
One of the main usability issues was hard to know that cells had to be monitored in order to generate reports.
The Landsat Cells panel lists all overlapping cells and highlights those that are monitored.
If no cell is monitored there is a warning in red that no reports will be generated for this area.
If date of the most recent observation for the cell is shown E.g. 04-25 (only displayed if available).
A Lock icon shows how to change a cell. While locked, clicking on a cell on the map has no effect.
There is a hover popup.
Clicking the padlock unlocks edit-mode.
Monitored cells are highlighted here as well as drawn bold on the map.
Hovering over a cell on the map will also highlight it the list in italics.
The last cell clicked on the map is listed with path and row in blue.
Saving and Restoring the Map View
The Map Coordinates Panel now shows the cursor’s latitude and longitude.
Can be useful for locating a feature onthe map.
The current map center and zoom is also displayed, These can now be saved as the default view for the area.
The Return button takes the current view back to the initial view shown when the page loaded.
Useful if you can’t find your starting point. This does not update the saved area.
The map also now shows the scale in the bottom right corner.
This has moved to the Area panel, so now only displayed when the Area panel is opened.
There are numerous improvements to the code base, recorded in the git logs.
