Today I tried QGIS 2.13 (dev-version of the upcoming 2.14) and had a look at the now implemented support for „3D-Features“ (2.5d support). It works well and makes the workflow described some months ago easier.
Today I started to test the developer-version of the upcoming QGIS 2.14 and found a nice feature integrated out-of-the-box. In previous QGIS-versions tracing along existing geometries required 3rd-party plug-ins (e.g. http://isticktoit.net/?p=131) – now it looks like integrated with QGIS 🙂

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 🙂
Did you ever want to „draw“ polygons inverted (masked) with a border with a color gradient ? With QGIS (tested with 2.8) it’s a small step…
Yesterday I tried to reproduce one of my typical ESRI-workflows with QGIS 2.8.x – having some 2D point-features and converting these features to 3D features deriving elevation from a DEM – and at least I need the z-value in the table… a simple task, or not ?
Yesterday I had stumbled on the ESRI FileGeodatabase (FGDB) support in QGIS. I used a new QGIS 2.6 installation on Kubuntu 14.04.1 from the “ http://qgis.org/debian“ repo – and had NO FGDB-support 🙁 … after some investigation-work I had a solution.
With Ubuntu 14.10 it’s a pain in the neck – ubuntugis delivers GDAL 1.10.1 and not 1.11 – so no OpenFileGDB support…
