So Abstracts are starting to roll in
Big news: Social at the Tap House in Historic St Elmo the Night before
the meeting (October 24th). Sponsors have stepped and it's happening.
For those who are coming in the night before it's going to be a fun event.
Abstracts of Note:
* Randal Hale - QGIS: It's all about Form(s) - QGIS comes with the
abilility to create forms to help you input data or capture data.
You can build simple forms to help users avoid misspellings and help
speed up data capture. You can also build forms where data entry is
dependent on previous data entered as well as forms where data entry
depends on other GIS data. Building Forms in QGIS is easy, powerful,
and easily done if you have no programming experience. I'm going to
attempt to talk you through the easiest to make forms plus one
difficult form to show you how easy this can be (or hard depending
on how the demos work).
* Erich Purpur - EcoValuator: QGIS plugin development. Working in
collaboration with Key-Log Economics (An environmental economics
consulting firm) in a project funded by the National Fish & Wildlife
Foundation, I (Erich Purpur) worked with a group of other developers
and contributors to build EcoValuator, a plugin built for QGIS 3.
EcoValuator is built on python and provides a simple means of
estimating the dollar value of a study area, based on the land cover
types in that study area, and on your ecosystem service of choice.
This presentation will cover background information about the
project, what are ecosystem services, how the EcoValuator works,
challenges of using the QGIS python API, and demonstration of the
plugin in action.
* Bernie Drahola - Building a cloud-based mapping and analysis
solution based on Openlayers and CesiumJS. 18 month ago our team
felt the need for having a next Gen cloud mapping solution. We did
not want to leave it all to ArcGIS Online, so we decided to build
our own. It is designed to make maps, analyze data, add custom
database solutions, and to share maps and data with fellow
users.Take a look behind the scene of the journey of putting it all
together and learn how far we have come and what are our ideas in
terms of connecting Open Source solutions like QGIS and GeoServer.
More are coming in! Please Submit if you wish to talk about QGIS or any
of the software QGIS touches. We're over the halfway mark for Talks.
