This talk presents QGIS visualization tools with a focus on efficient use of layer styling to both explore and present spatial data. Examples include the recently added heatmap style as well as sophisticated rule-based and data-defined styles. Additionally, we will have a special look at exploring and presenting spatio-temporal data using the Time Manager plugin. As a special treat, we will look into creating time-dependent styles using expressio...

Tools for spatio-temporal analysis is very important in order to know how the geographics objects evolves.

Some very good pointers here
 
I've put together a few notes on my first foray into using raster data with PostGIS 2 and QGIS, loading the OS Terrain50 data.

These are baby steps at the moment but first impressions are that once you have the basics in place it can create an efficient workflow and it's very fast.

I hope this is useful.
Adrian Wooster explores loading GIS raster maps from a PostGIS 2 geographically enabled Postgres database alongside the more commonplace vector data.

+Martin Stubenschrott since we talked about the amazing detail in OSM today: here's a great interactive animated map of the evolution of OSM 
OpenStreetMap 10 years in, hundreds of thousands of people have mapped 25 million miles of roads in every country in the world. Here is a look back at how the most detailed map of the world started.

Very nice article. Especially like the discussion of advantages in the end.
In GIS it is often sometimes hard to present point-based data because at times there are several different points and data symbologies that need to be shown. As the number of different data points grows they can become complicated to interpret and manage, resulting in convoluted and sometimes inaccurate maps. In order to reduce map congestion many GIS users use a process called binning. Binning is defined as the process of grouping pairs of locat...

Spatial Data Made Useful - my latest #geospatial #data tools book #gdal #osgeo #gis #maps

Everyone that deals with geographic/spatial/geospatial data knows they need specialised tools for the job.  Fortunately, there are a ton of open source tools up for the challenge.  In my latest book, Geospatial Power Tools, I show how to use an advanced…

Please read and sign this "Open Letter" by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) that demands from +Esri to stop fragmenting the existing and popular open #LiDAR  formats LAS and LAZ with flimsy technical arguments that leave little doubt that this is really about tying people long-terms to their ArghGIS platform. Keep LiDAR open!!!

There is a good discussion thread on the QGIS PSC mailing list about the next developments of QGIS.  Currently QGIS Wien 2.8 is the Long Term Support release which a lot of folk are happy about as it means we have stability and support for a year and don't have to try keep up with the 4 monthly release cycle.  But there are upcoming changes to Qt, Python and other software which will eventually mean a change to QGIS.  There are also implications for plugin developers and folk using the API.

It is worth a read to see what the core QGIS folk are doing: http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-psc/2015-April/002986.html (start here and read on)
