Hi All,
First of all thank you for the creators and contributes of this work bench. I am fairly new to free cad and have zero knowledge of python. I have been using linux on and off for about 9 years now though. All these things aside, I am trying to get OSM terrain details ( or any other terrain details like google or SRTM) of a specific co-ordinates for my architecture model. but trials work bench returns the below error. Using Freecad 0.19 appimage daily build. Could some one help me out tho get this thing working ?

@Joel_graff:

would you accept a PR which renames GeoDataWB to geoimport?
Do you have any progress on this?

@thotbuilds
I too am really excited about this workbench but If you can't get it to work I have had fairly good luck with BlenderGIS the first 5mins of this video goes over it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj7Z1P2hUWk you should then be able to export it as an .obj and bring it into freecad. Of course you might end up with a lot of scaling and alignment issues. If you use .ifc files you could look into using blenderbim to export it from blender as an .ifc with geographic data. It might come in right then. The OSArch forum would probably be happy to help you figure that out. https://community.osarch.org/discussions

Doing a little housekeeping on Trails. Geotechnical code has been moved to the 'geomatics' folder. @HakanSeven12 may want to test to ensure it's working properly.

Pull from the 'restructure' branch (not 'dev')

Hi Joel,

I'm also a civil enginer working in trackworks for 30 years now.
And just like you, i'm a bit disapointed by the leading Alignment softwares from Bentley or AutoDesk.
I just discovered FreeCAD, it's amazing capabilities, and the workbrench you are working on.

I went through a developement of an Alignment Editor a few years ago, you can see some swf demos just here: http://linea-trace.blogspot.com/

I still have the alignment object structure i wrote at that time and it was pretty stable, i re-worked on it last year to add a LandXML parser.

I was wondering if i could help i any way.

I'll take a closer look at what you developed. I've really only developed things just enough to work for my purposes, so I've no doubt there's a number of shortcomings. Always happy to have additional help, though I think this task might be a bit daunting for most folks to get involved. :)

All the same, whatever you feel like contributing,, I'm certainly open to it.

I'll take a closer look. @HakanSeven isn't really able to spend time supporting it and I really don't know anything about the code he wrote, but I'll see if I can sort through the issue.

Joel is right. But I made a fix and I can't test. I hope it will works.
