1 Getting started Starting the Virtual Machines, utilities, intro to workflows using Trident ADD BUSINESS UNIT/FLAGSHIP NAME Nick Murray| March 2013

2 Training delivery TWB uses a lot of software, can be time-consuming to install, so we put it into a Virtual Machine (VM). A VM is a copy of Windows running inside Windows. (or Windows inside MacOS, or Linux) Saves a lot of time & makes it easy to experiment with workflows Don’t use for production modelling. We can give VMs to CSIRO staff, not others. ArcGIS licence times out on Friday! Presentation title | Presenter name 2 |

4 Loading the training notes March course: “aisle” computer has two monitors: one for training notes People on the “aisle” computers: run Firefox and go to https://wiki.csiro.au/display/HWB/TWB+Training+Modules https://wiki.csiro.au/display/HWB/TWB+Training+Modules Main training page. Training is on the left, individual steps are on the right (some are incomplete) Reading Module 1 Introduction to workflows using TWB was homework. Module 2 Setting up the training environment. Already installed! Double-click icon on desktop or Start > All programs > VMWare > VMWare Player Go to section Messages you might see after starting the VM. Presentation title | Presenter name 4 |

5 What’s on the VM Trident (Workflow composer and Management studio) R studio and R ArcGIS with service pack 2 Office 2007 Visual Studio Express 2012 for Desktop (for writing your own Trident activities) A pile of utilities to make your life easier Presentation title | Presenter name 5 |

6 Utility demos Lots of folders, lots of files in this course, so we wanted to make life easy for you. Everything. Shortcut is Win-Q Notepad++ (best just to right-click, then “Edit with Notepad++”) Listary PathCopyCopy XnView Others: WinMerge, Foxit PDF reader, Katmouse, Paint.net Documentation about these is on the shared folder Presentation title | Presenter name 6 |

7 The Workbench: installing it Already installed, but see c:\TwbTraining\Packages. Start > All Programs > The Workbench (version) > The Workbench Presentation title | Presenter name 7 |

8 Registry concepts – backup and restore Presentation title | Presenter name 8 | Workflow Composer Core ArcGIS Rushy C W This registry (database file) can now be shared or archived. C W C W A R C W A R C W A R Blank Packages Modified registry can now be shared or archived. ArcGIS Core Rushy C W A R Blank

9 Workflow demo Run TWB, then run composer. Walkthrough of composer interface SW/GW linking workflow already in there. Examine components. Run & see what happens. Note Composer/monitor tabs. Close Composer. Restore blank registry. Re-open composer to check. Presentation title | Presenter name 9 |

10 Adding packages to the registry Adds pre-packaged activities and workflows to the Trident registry. Easy way of sharing. Not simple to build packages yet, it's coming. Example: add the Core package (latest version) Use TWB interface (Import Package) to import the Navigate to c:\TwbTraining\Packages, choose the most recent Core package, Click the refresh button in Composer, Core appears Practice: close composer, restore a blank registry, start again. Adding packages to the registry Presentation title | Presenter name 10 |

11 Module 3: The TWB software tools https://wiki.csiro.au/display/HWB/The+TWB+software+tools This will be a quick run-through. See module 3 for more details. Import package loads a collection of predefined activities Backup registry saves the current state of the Trident registry. Restore registry loads a previously-saved registry. Find lets you search for activities & workflows Generate activity “wraps” external things (R/Python scrips, Source projects etc) and imports them into Trident. Logs opens Windows Explorer at the logs folder (Source/Trident) Workflow composer opens Workflow composer (creates workflows) Management studio adds/removes categories, individual activities Presentation title | Presenter name 11 |

12 Get data onto and off the VM Sample data is already on the VM – you don’t need to load any. You can share folders between the “guest” Windows and the “host” (real) Windows. In VMWare Player: 1. Click the VM name: Windows 7 x86 V1 2. Click Edit virtual machine settings (lower right) 3. Click the Options tab 4. Enable shared folders 5. Start the VM (or restart if running) Presentation title | Presenter name 12 |
