QGIS Support Updates

You've read the title and went "We knew that you were doing QGIS Support". Well...... So I did something like 7 conferences this year. Maybe 6. Honestly I lost count. What I didn't lose count of were my notes. I tackled this year like I did 2020 in asking "What does...

The FOSS4GNA 2023 Review

This might get a bit long. I've been debating how to summarize up the first meeting we've had since 2019. I've had a year where I've been trying to do things differently. Going to more meetings, handing out business cards, sponsoring more events, and just generally...

RapidSOS and QGIS

I took a bit of a break from the TN NG911 project. I've had a lot of random thoughts about direction and "what does this need to do" as in QGIS Plugin or more work into the database...or both. Anyway - more on that later. A few weeks ago a client popped up and went...

A Trip down Memory Lane

I guess I'm keynoting the West TN TNGIC Conference....or I'm just the first speaker. I received a call and it went either "Hey we want you..." or "Hey the first four people cancelled so...." I didn't want to talk about The 911 project or the latest FOSS4G thing - so...

I keep typing Model Builder. Old habits die hard. In my continuing efforts to deconstruct whatever training I was doing - I'm now into "Part 2" which is a model designer class. Way back in the day when I cared more for the ESRI stuff, I had written a model builder...

Small Business Supporter of QGIS

I was able to re-up NRGS's commitment to the QGIS Organization last week. Granted - not a ton of money but things are budgeted etc etc and it was time. So what does that get me? Well - a logo I can anchor on my website. What does it get all of us? So for like $550...

Thoughts on Training

Last week I did something a bit weird - I had an almost full training class. What? You probably thought I did a ton of training. It's hit or miss mainly. Lately I've been busy with clients (which is my main focus - data problems). In May I announced a new class which...
