QGIS Mobile 0.2 Demo

It is with great pleasure the we want to share with you the demo video of version 0.2. of QGIS Mobile (temporary name) is a touch optimized interface for field work developed by OPENGIS.ch. The QGIS mobile 0.2 video demonstrates some basic functionality like navigation, feature identification and attribute editing. The QField 0.2 video demonstrates some basic functionality like navigation, feature identification and attribute editing.

Happy new year to the power of two!

For the first time we at OPENGIS.ch can celebrate with 2 people, Marco Bernasocchi and Matthias Kuhn both experienced QGIS developers and holders of a Master degree in GIScience. After having worked individually in the last years, we have realized that there is a huge potential for us to join our knowledge - because the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This is why starting from January 1st, 2015 we are working together as OPENGIS.ch LLC.

QGIS 2.0 nightly features review

The last few weeks have been super exciting and intense in terms of QGIS development. I’ve been working a lot and sleeping little to get the latest and greatest stuff to you in the nightly packages. Beside the whole UI and stability work, the nicest feature is probably the mbtiles support. mbtiles are raster tiles in a sqlite database and are blazing fast, have a look at it in the video below.

InaSAFE wins Open Source ‘Rookie of the Year’ award

From Tim’s post:

Rookie_Award_2012 A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing an interview on behalf of the InaSAFE project as part of the selection process for the Black Duck Software ‘open source rookies of the year’ competition. A week later we heard that we had made it into the top 10! The award is based on a selection or projects from the popular ohlog.net web site:

“Using data on open source projects from Ohloh.net and the Black Duck® KnowledgeBase™, Black Duck reviewed thousands of open source projects that were initiated in 2012 to select the fifth annual Open Source Rookies of the Year. Using a weighted scoring system, points were awarded based on project activity, commits pace, project team attributes and other factors. Black Duck determined the top 10 Rookie projects following an audit of its findings and normalization of scores.”

You can see all the winners listed at the official competition page here. We were also fortunate to be mentioned in Wired, DirectionsMag and various other places.

We have worked incredibly hard over the last year to make the InaSAFE plugin for QGIS, with a team of dedicated developers from AUSAID, WorldBank, Linfiniti, opengis.ch and a number of other developers and contributors, so it is really great to receive this acknowledgement! Here is looking to another great year of working on InaSAFE for 2013!

“We are pleased to recognize InaSAFE as one of the 2012 Open Source Rookies of the Year,” said Tim Yeaton, CEO and president, Black Duck Software. “The Rookies demonstrate how community innovation, particularly within the JavaScript and mobile projects, mirrors the need for innovation in web experiences, mobile devices and enterprise application. Being able to identify and showcase these up-and-coming open source projects is an important part of our mission at Black Duck to bring together the open source community and businesses around the world.”

Past winners of the prestigious award include Twitter Bootstrap, Cloud Foundry, Mozilla Persona (formerly known as BrowserID), Red Hat OpenShift, Eclipse Orion, Apache Rave, Salt Stack, OpenStack, Diaspora and many other notable projects.

I’m really happy to be part of this team and I look forward to more hacking (in the original sense of course) together, Great job guys
