Therion

Postby Jeff Bartlett » Dec 8, 2011 2:32 pm

Sluka, can you start putting all your random Therion thread-bombing testimonials in here, so that we don't have to trip over them in every other vaguely survey-related thread from now until the end of time? Thanks.

Ya, if you stop your -10 % nonsense. It is your personal problem. Therion is normal software package for documentation of cave, cave systems and karst areas. It is more complicated as simple map drawing packages. But produce more complex results. That is all. To mention Therion is as legal as mention Walls, Compass, OnStation, Survex, Toporobot, Visual Topo, etc.

Jeff - In that recent SurvX topic YOU were the one who first brought up Therion (in a negative context). Not Martin. You can't really blame him for replying and defending his favorite product.

Entirely untrue: the first response in the SurvX thread was Martin Sluka telling the original poster that Therion was more user-friendly, and less rocket-science, than Survex.

Instances of Mr. Sluka trolling other Cavechat threads with Therion stuff, often unrelated to the topic and almost always unsolicited:

http://forums.caves.org/viewtopic.php?f ... it=Therion

In fact, of Martin's 175 lifetime Cavechat posts, 45 contain the word "Therion." Which would be fine, except at least half of those original topics had nothing to do with Therion.

Forgive my lack of patience, but I've grown tired of not being able to post anything in this forum, nor respond to anything in this forum, without being Therion-bombed. This has gone on for several years now, unabated.

I stand corrected. I only saw the replies on the most recent page, and forgot to click to the original two posts on the first page. My apologies.

You've done an impressive job of stating your case. Incidentally, I seem to recall we have a "rant" topic somewhere in the open talk forum if you ever need to vent.

I like to think that Jim tried to post that in another thread, but it was magically transported to this one!

I think Jim (Roppelcaver) was poking fun at you Jeff. :laughing: Lighten up and enjoy life. Come back and help me survey again of my project
this summer and it will get your mind off Therion. :big grin: We stopped surveying in some big passage last summer and there is a formation
area ahead and some more big passages and another couple of pits. I guarantee you one of those pits is still virgin. And if you want to show us how hardcore you are, there are plenty of crawls still waiting to be surveyed. :banana: :cavingrocks:

Definitely -- just email me whenever you're going, or have Pup email me.

Whoever started a rumor about me being hardcore is full of crap, but it sure wouldn't be the first crawl I've mapped (nor the last)! :)

Dear friend, if somebody here try to solve a problem which is solved (but magical therion) may I add the note about this or not?
If somebody is looking for software to draw maps may I add the note, or not?
etc.

And, really, create 3D model of cave from data with LRUD is trivial in therion too.

http://www.cave-registry.org.uk UK cave registry - Cheddar Catchment Area dataset. Perfect idea, data of caves are in sources - survex and therion. Do map itself! ;)

Inkscape & Therion

Postby Martin Sluka » Jan 4, 2012 2:38 am

Thomas Holder created extensions to Inkscape which able to open and save (new files too) drawings as .th2 files. Mostly all Therion functions work excluding areas and attributes to line points. You may prepare complete scrap in Inkscape (with live preview) and finish it in therion.

An interesting report on using Therion in a vast and long lasting project.
