Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. I've created a plugin and hosting the installation zip and xml file on a local network repository (for company use).
Is there something in the repository xml file that flags QGIS that the plugin has an update available? The QGIS-plugin manager matches the version number of any locally installed QGIS plugin (this includes your development version) with the version number hosted on the QGIS plugin repo.
I guess the metadata.txt of the plugin has another version number stored than the repository xml file.

I tried "$x" and "$y" for coordinates but it always give me zero "0" values too, and what I really want is to display the coordinates like in this image. Thank you Anita, but, today, in the afternoon, I explored qgis composer, and had already achieved that goal.

What is the right way to think about doing lower value work when small talking with an executive? MapInfo TAB editing has been supported in GDAL 2 but up until this point QGIS has only be built against GDAL 1.xx. Even if you don’t want to make the switch to full QGIS you can now use both bits of software and edit in both.
QGIS will still only support a single geometry type per layer so if you open a mixed tab file you will get the geometry type selector.
Something that I always find interesting is how people are using different open source tools to get their work done.
Each defect point is snapped to the underlying  kerb line and chainages (distance along line) is generated using a update statement at the end of the project (could be done using a insert trigger if needed) using ST_line_locate_point(line, point). We recently suffered, like the rest of Queensland, some really major flooding which caused large amounts of damage to our road infrastructure. In total there are 42 QGIS project files with a main project file which served the base layers to the other projects, using the cool Embed Layers and Groups feature.
Normally we would use MapInfo for this kind of thing but consider this: There are at least 3 print layouts per claim, each layout could have more then one map frame. Each map window has its own copy of every layer, making change once apply every where changes hard. QGIS is no means perfect for printing or print layouts but the 1:N map window to map frame ratio worked really well for this project. The issue: A large influx of GPS photos for the different flood damage projects and the need to process them quickly so that they got assigned to the correct road and chainage. The Spatialite database has a spatial index on the road distance nodes and with that in place it can process 148 photos in 8 seconds.


I have been involved in creating, and maintaining, our planning scheme maps for the council. No dynamic scale bar for layouts (not even a scale bar object rather just text and boxes made to look like a scale bar. 1:1 map window to map frame means excessive map windows when the data is all the same with just different views. The specifications also ask for lines with symbols along them to show things like bikeways, footpaths etc, something that can’t be done in MapInfo, well it can by using the line style editor but I would rather stab myself in the eye.
The one thing I haven’t fully worked out how to do in QGIS yet is fully automate the printing process. Hopefully this tool can be of some use to people, as I know it has been very helpful to me since I made it. If you are using MapInfo Font symbols or normal MapInfo 3.0 everything should come across almost exactly. Currently the program only support converting symbols but I plan on adding line and region support sometime in the future. Like I said at the start, hopefully other people will find this tool handy as I know I have. PBBI have recently released MapInfo 11, the new version has brought one change that I think deserves some attention – even if for the wrong reasons.
Yes this is a pretty handy feature but no it shouldn’t be the only way to sort, you should have a click on the header kind of sort. And finally shift click to select a block of rows doesn’t work, I mean come on this is not a hard thing to do.
Now if you are reading this blog you are well aware that I am a huge fan of QGIS, I don’t really make that a secret.
If you are a partial QGIS users who mostly uses MapInfo or ESRI stuff I would also like to get your opinion. I was thinking more like ArcGIS data frames vs something like what MapInfo has (multiple windows). These are just two of the main things that I would like to see, I’ll update the post if I can think of anymore. Of course being open source I can write the features myself but C++ is still a bit over my head at the moment. In order to use the class as a COM object we have two more steps to complete, one is registering the COM object and the other is creating it. This will register the COM object which will mean it can then be creating for use by MapInfo. I think Python could be a good language to prototype MapInfo based app, or even build a whole app itself. In a by nowfairly old postI described how to sample raster values at point location in QGIS. Now select your point layer (1), one or more grid layers (2) and the interpolation method (3).
Everything works fine but every time a user opens QGIS, it shows that the plugin has an update when nothing has been updated. We got off pretty light compared to some places, nevertheless we still had a lot of damaged assets.


While there is nothing technically wrong with that, it has become a bit more of a pain to maintain then one would hope. Currently I open MapInfo using a batch file and pass it a workspace and MBX which prints the layouts and exits. In fact I know I can because I have already hit most of the them in the last couple of weeks.
Knowing that QGIS uses QML (a XML file format) to store it style information, and that MapInfo was able to export a style string for each object, I compared what QGIS generated for its QML using the same symbol I picked in QGIS as I had in MapInfo. This is not the normal just click on the header to sort the column, no because that would be too easy, you have to right click in the browser, click sort and select the options which then opens a new browser window. So I guess the overall point of this post is to compare the QGIS attribute table (browser) and the new MapInfo 11 one. However, the function creates a new point layer, which only contains the values extracted from the raster layer. For this function to be available, you must have installed Saga GIS and than enable it in the processing options.
In Windows you will also have to define the path of the directory to which you installed saga.
If you simply want the grid values at point location, use the default ‘nearest neighbor’ method. Each form has four drop downs all with present values and descriptions to aid in data entry.
Now all we have to do to process the photos is stick them into a special folder and run process.bat. Although if you are using custom MapInfo 3.0 symbols you will get the default QGIS black square symbol,you can just change it to something better after loading the QML. When you move the little scroll box on the side the browser waits until you have finished to show you the data. Quick tip: if a free program can access and manage your data faster than you, you are failing. Like the point sampling tool described earlier, it will create a new point layer with a new column for each raster layer sampled.
Last, give the path and name of the output shapefile (alternatively, the function will create a temporary file, which you can than save using the save as option in the file menu.
The above text addresses three independent issues: one about date formatting, one about scale, and the other about how to create a grid. Once I worked out how to convert MapInfo point size  to QGIS symbol size, and MapInfo colour value to RGB it was just a matter of generating a QML with the correct values.
It is possible to join the attribute table of the new vector point layer with the original attribute table afterwards using a spatial join as explained inthat post. The difference is that it will also copy over the columns that were already present in the original point layer.
However, this will not work if your point data includes points with exactly the same coordinates.
