Montana

Mar 7, 2024 | QGIS

I said this year I was cutting back on conferences….and then someone called from Montana.

I am headed to Montana to teach the Intro to QGIS Class. I’ll be doing that Tuesday April 16th – it will be the 1/2 day edition. At some point I’ll also be speaking. That should be fun as I’m probably the only person there with a East TN Accent. I expect a lot of people to go “WHAT?” as I speak.

Why Montana? So if you flash back to 2015 I taught the Intro Class in San Francisco at the FOSS4GNA meeting in Burlingame CA. I had a guy name Andy Rahn from Montana come and take the class. What started from that has been some random work and random phone calls and he suggest I come visit Montana…..and that’s how easy I am. It’s the nice thing I like about the GIS community (in particular the QGIS Community) you can make a friend that sticks around for 9 years based off one class (that wasn’t my best class by any stretch).

If anyone wants to get together and tell lies about QGIS or much of anything – yell.

If you're just tuning in I built a postgis database for the TN NG 911 project. What this has turned into is "small counties who can't/don't want to run with an ESRI solution". I posted the code up on github (and I realize every day I suck at github). So what did I...

QGIS2Web and the Hunt for Bike Lanes

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...
