Using KSAVI’s Geospatial Network Inventory Free Demo software to create an example FTTP network across Exeter city centre.
Planning FTTH Networks Linking houses to hub points on adjacent roads – Having spoken to professionals about designing planning fibre networks, I wanted to explore the task using QGIS. (Spoiler: And then I discovered Ksavi’s – Geospatial Network Inventory – Fiber optic network planning and design.) Using QGIS example Fibre to the Home (FTTH) networks were […]
Using the neat and intuitive Openstreetmap.org map editor, I have updated OpenstreetMap.org displaying the excavated and now filled marina basin. The Sibson Marina basin is now connected to and navigable from the River Nene. The depth of the entrance and the basin is between 3 and 6 m.
The Sibson Marina Project is progressing well. The basin has been excavated, clay lined and will soon be filled. The map composition below shows the details of the mooring arrangements and approximate position of the anchor blocks and additional bouys. There is space for up to 27 main mooring blocks (green dots) at 10 m […]

I checked my production stats today and […]
Cycling, The John Bunyan Way An 18 km cycle ride through the fields of Bedfordshire on a summer’s evening after a day at the keyboard.
Relief Shading Relief shading uses shadows to bring out the topography of the terrain from a digital elevation model (DEM). It is creating using a technique called hillshading. Variations in hillshade give the elevation a 3D effect displaying hilly or flat areas of the data. Slope Slope displays the inclination or steepness of a surface, […]
