2021-10-13 GIMP Ocean Coastline

2021-10-13T09:04:00Z Back at Chiayi editing, well actually I'm editing taipei but pboProject is taking forever to do its thing so I decided to make chiayi satellite texture tile catalog while waiting.

Started to load sat_ images into GIMP and inspect them while writing down all full ocean, coastline and tiles with clouds in them. Discovered one Black Tile... err tile, so started terra incognita and re-saved Taiwan_Chiayi_81km_2_arcgis_17_level in order to fix the black tile issue.

2021-10-13T10:40:00Z Finished cataloging satellite texture tiles, this included cooking food and eating break heh.

2021-10-13T10:44:00Z Started to global mapper export satellite texture, lets get that black tile fixed. Kind of excessive to export full 81,920 x 81,920 pixel resolution imagery for one single spot, but oh well. I'm happy that now this knowledge has been written down to local notes and in my tool pipeline, there is not going to be any more black tiles because I'm going to always irFanview check all fresh terra incognita exports and if any are found, I'll re-save the corner piece and its fixed.

2021-10-13T11:52:00Z Global mapper finished exporting satellite and sat_A8.png is without a black tile, nice.

2021-10-13T14:16:00Z Was working on PMC Africa Niger Tongo terrain a little but now its waiting for p:\pmc\ mount so we're back working on taiwan chiayi a bit.

Used global mapper to export preview-arcgis-17-level.png image with 50 meter / pixel scale.

Then did all OSM shape files for that UTM 31N transformation, something went wrong with the transformed_places.csv location place names because they came out all messed up. But they were in taiwanese/chinese at source level so noone would understand them anyways hehe.

2021-10-13T16:21:00Z Finished GIMP clone brushing all clouds off, man that is tedious job. Its very deceiving because painting in GIMP feels "fun" when you start it... but after you've done first half hour of it... the fun is not there anymore, then its just painful tedious job and feels crappy to destroy satellite image.
