Fedora and QGIS-Flatpak – LTS versus recent version

Just for fun I gave Fedora and Gnome with version 34 a try again 🙂 One of the first things to do as a geoscientist has been the installation of QGIS… because of the not always up-to-date repo versions (and COPR), I selected the Flatpak-version… but got 3.16 LTS alltough I expected it to be 3.18.2 :-/ What I did not know, Flathub encapsulates 2 versions in one „Repo“.

ArcGIS Pro 2.6 falls in love with (editing) Geopackage :-)

Good news for all users and fans of Geopackage – with ArcGIS 2.6 ESRI made it possible to edit features stored in a geopackage database directly 🙂 So after QGIS making geopackage it’s default „geodatabase“, ESRI also supports it including editing features.

I did a first workflow and ArcGIS Pro 2.6 did it’s job editing features stored in a geopackage 🙂

From observation.org SQLITE dump to QGIS with Spatialite

The nature observation platform observation.org provides a SQLite-dump of your observations. As a geospatial nerd it is obvious to have a deeper look on the database and how the location of the observations is stored… and to think one step further: Make a Spatialite database of it and use it directly in QGIS or ArcGIS.

[1] Export your data from observation.org as SQLITE-dump:

Corona COVID-19 meets QGIS – create your own maps

The Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University provides the famous Corona Dashboard and Map (ESRI ArcGIS Online App) and an ArcGIS Feature Service with the recent data (and a GIT Repo with the raw data). The ArcGIS Feature Server support of QGIS makes it easy to have „some fun“ with QGIS and the provided datasets.
