There a few cases where running
install.sh would be necessary. If you

In order to check your configuration of spatial extents, a small tool is available at http://server/tools/extents/.

Custom spatial reference¶
Geotrek comes with a few projection systems included (EPSG:2154, EPSG:32600, EPSG:32620, EPSG:32632)
In order to use a specific projection system :
- Make sure the SRID is present in the
spatial_ref_systable. See PostGIS documentation to add new ones
Using the command-line :
curl "http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/<SRID>/proj4js/" > Geotrek/static/proj4js/<SRID>.js
|note:||Geotrek won’t run if the spatial reference has not a metric unit.|
It’s possible to store your data using a specific SRID, and use a classic Google Maps projection (3857) in the Web interface (useful for WMTS or OpenStreetMap layers). See advanced configuration…
Geotrek relies on Django authentication and permissions system : Users belong to groups and permissions can be assigned at user or group-level.
The whole configuration of user, groups and permissions is available in the AdminSite, if you did not enable External authent (see below).
By default four groups are created :
- Path managers
- Trek managers
Once the application is installed, it is possible to modify the default permissions of these existing groups, create new ones etc…
If you want to allow the users to access the AdminSite, give them the staff status using the dedicated checkbox.
It is not safe to use the
geotrek user in QGis, or to give its password to
A wise approach, is to create a read-only user, or with specific permissions.
With pgAdmin, you can create database users like this :
CREATE ROLE lecteur LOGIN; ALTER USER lecteur PASSWORD 'passfacile'; GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE geotrekdb TO lecteur;
And give them permissions by schema :
GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA public TO lecteur; GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA geotrek TO lecteur; GRANT SELECT ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA public TO lecteur; GRANT SELECT ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA geotrek TO lecteur;
You can also create groups, etc. See postgresql documentation.
Geotrek will send emails :
- to administrators when internal errors occur
- to managers when a feedback report is created
Email configuration takes place in
etc/settings.ini, where you control
recipients emails (
mailmanagers) as well as server
You can test you configuration with the following command. A fake email will be sent to the managers :
