MongoDB (3.2) is a kind of database-hipster at the moment – with improving support for spatial data. So it was time for me to discover some of it’s features concerning spatial data. As a GIS-user my first intention was to get some bigger simple (point) geodata into MongoDB. Part 1 covers this topic, part 2 will cover some spatial operations within MongoDB. I also want to do some performance checks between PostgreSQL/PostGIS and MongoDB related to geodata.

So as a student (read: lazy and cheap) I did not want to leave the four walls I call
home dormitory just to watch Youtube videos on my phone.
Just yesterday I wandet to use my mobile (Nexus 5 / Android 5.1 CM 12.1) for connecting to the internet on my notebook (Fedora 22 / KDE Plasma 5). Connecting it via USB and activating USB-Tethering did something in network manager – but did not connect 🙁
Stellen Sie sich vor, die Festplatte ihres ehemaligen Computers (was auch immer darauf war) taucht bei einem Fachhändler als Gebrauchtware zum Verkauf wieder auf. Ja, das gibt es in Lienz ! Man sollte vom Experten dann zumindest verlangen können dass keine Ihrer Daten darauf vorzufinden sind. Die Betonung liegt auf „sollte“…
Using the GRASS-commands Toolbox in QGIS 2.8.x LTR on Ubuntu resulted in: „Missing dependency. This algorithm cannot be run 🙁 „. The solution is very simple 🙂
So, once again the good old problem of installing Citrix receiver on a new installed Fedora 22 (KDE). This time I was surprised getting a really new Citrix receiver dated 30.6.2015 (today is the 1st of July). And surprise: No rpm-package 🙁
