What's new – Drag and drop enhancements

Sep 24, 2018

You can now specify a boundary polygon for workspace creation and downloads by dragging a Shapefile or GeoJSON file onto the creation/download dialog. Drag and drop styling has also been improved throughout the UI.

Dragging a shapefile into the download dialog imports the shapefile as a download boundary.

Download and vectors

We have released a number of updates related to downloading data from SCALGO Live:

  • We now support DXF and GeoPackage for downloading vector data.
  • Furthermore you can now control the coordinate system of the downloaded data. You can choose the coordinate system from the download dialog. If you pick a new coordinate system (from the top right menu) this setting will also be reflected in the download dialog.
  • There is a new download option in the Flash Flood Map: building information. If you choose this option you will download building footprints annotated with information about water in depressions neighboring the buildling. See the manual for more information.
The user has chosen GeoPackage as the Vector download format. The reprojection options are available in the download dialog and in the user menu.

Subsurface in sea-level rise computations

Subsurface edits in workspaces are now included in the sea-level rise computations. They were previously ignored.

In a workspace a dike has been made around a city. A depression inside the protected area has been connected to the coast. The water rises in this depression through the pipe.

Denmark: National Computation

The national sea-level rise computation has been updated to use the national set of hydrological corrections as subsurface structures. This implies the analysis is no longer based on the Denmark/2105/Sea model, however the model will remain available in SCALGO Live for use in other tools. All computations have been updated to use newer GeoDanmark buildings (accquired from Kortforsyningen 6th of April 2018).
