Qimera Match QPD Process

Qimera - Match QPD Process

This process is only done on QINSy (.db) files.  During metadata extraction of the QINSy raw sonar file, Qimera will attempt to find the associated QPD file for the line.  Every QPD in a Qimera project will ultimately appear in the project ~/DtmData/VesselName folder where VesselName is the name of the vessel for the specific loaded raw sonar file.  To match be a matching QPD, the base name, that part of the filename after the directory declaration and before the extension needs to be the same as the raw sonar file base name.

Opening QINSy Projects

Qimera will first look in the  ~/DtmData/VesselName folder of that project for the QPD.  If a match is found, the matching process stores the value in the project XML and exits.  If the match is not found, Qimera will then look in the root project ~/DtmData folder.  If a match is found, the file will be moved to the ~/DtmData/VesselName folder for that project, the path is stored in the XML and the matching process exits.  If a match is not found, the raw sonar file will show as needing processing in the tree view by the icon.

Importing QINSy DB Files

If you have created a new project and are importing DB files into your project from some other folder, Qimera will look  in the QINSy project's ~/DtmData/VesselName folder for a matching QPD.  If a match is found, the file is copied to the local project ~/DtmData/VesselName folder, the path is stored in the XML and the matching process exits.  If not found, Qimera will look in the root ~/DtmData folder of the QINSy project.  If a match is found, the file is copied to the local project ~/DtmData/VesselName folder, the path is stored in the XML and the matching process exits. Note, if the output coordinate system of an imported QINSy file is not the same as the Qimera project, Qimera will deem this a match failure.  If a match is not found, the raw sonar file will show as needing processing in the tree view by the icon.
