Any GIS becomes more useful when you can connect it to other programs and data services. In this workshop, you will learn how to connect QGIS to spatial databases, work with data from data services, use QGIS in conjunction with programming languages like R and Python, use plugins, and work with algorithms and processing tools from other GIS programs from the Processing Toolbox. We’ll also specifically address how to get help and resources for learning on your own. We recommend that participants have intermediate-level experience (equivalent of an introductory college course) with GIS con
Address data is essential infrastructure. Street names, house numbers and postal codes, when combined with geographic coordinates, are the hub that connects digital to physical places. At OpenAddresses we’ve been building a collection of the world’s authoritative data sources, and we've generated a sizable collection of data on a shoestring budget and exclusively volunteer effort.
Spatial analysis, cartography, and data visualization provide a powerful vehicle to help communities make informed decisions on policies that will shape how our cities will move in the future. Using examples from two projects, David will explore how procedural modeling can all be applied to provide a better understanding of transportation in our communities. The presentation will start with an introduction to procedural modeling and then describe two case studies in transportation planning.
