QGIS and LIDAR and Forestry Part 2

At the TNGIC conference I did a workshop on LIDAR and QGIS. I was completely blasted out by ESRI's Avenue for the Web class but I had a few souls come in and take a look at it. I finished it off with "I don't use LIDAR that much". Well.....I'm finally using it. It...

First install of the new TN 911 Database

I was teaching a QGIS class a while back and at one point the discussion drifted into "So this OpenStreetMap thing" and I discussed how I enjoy making edits. Eventually it turned to "I'm trying to get Chattanooga's Bike Lanes into it in my spare time". One thing led...
