OpenMapTiles are now multilingual


Do you need online maps with place names in your language? Our OpenMapTiles project can now display these multilingual names of places from the OpenStreetMap data very easily - just use our free map hosting service or install the maps on your own infrastructure.

The major feature of the OpenMapTiles v3.6 release is support for multilingual maps. It is now possible to create a map in your native language or a combination of more languages.


Tiles now support place names in 57 languages covering European languages and most major world languages.





Every map style (GL JSON), which is using OpenMapTiles vector tiles, can now define the main language for placenames and a fallback language (displayed in case the place does not have a name in the main language).

Place names in a non-latin script such as Russian, Chinese or Japanese come with a  transliterated alternative - to make them readable by more people. These alternative names can be displayed together with the main language place name.



The details of the implementation are described on GitHub.

Roads, railways and more

Several improvements were made on transportation layers, which now appears sooner and with more details. Primary roads are added to zoom 7. Railways are available one level up, and missing railway stations have been added. Highways are now improved - with links and road ramps fixed. Details are in the release notes.

If you need OpenStreetMap maps with places displayed in your language try our open-source project! For more details visit http://www.openmaptiles.org/

Learning GIS with Game of Thrones (XIII): Geoprocessing

Geoprocessing is the execution of analytical and modelling operations of geographic data for creating new information. Creating a new layer with the overlapped areas from two different layers, a layer that creates buffers around the geometries of vector features, or a point density map are examples of geoprocessing.

gvSIG Desktop has more than 350 geoprocessing operations. There are many algorithms ready for use that would help us to analyze the spatial information.

For more information about geoprocessing, open Help in gvSIG using the following links:

The geoprocessing tools can be find by clicking on the menu “Tools > Geoprocessing > Toolbox” or by using its shortkey.  

The toolbox menu allows to execute any of the geoprocesses available in gvSIG. Here, we will perform two different ones.

We will begin by performing a spatial join between the two layers “Locations” and “Political”. As it is said in the Help for this geoprocess, this tool joins attributes from one feature to another based on a common spatial relationship.
201_got

In the picture shown above, “Political” is the polygon layer while “Location“ is the point layer. If we perform a spatial join, the result would be a new point layer with the attributes of the “Political” layer. Let’s perform the spatial join, then.

In the “Toolbox”, select the “Spatial Join”. To find this geoprocessing operation, we can type “join” in the search box located at the bottom of the window- as shown in the picture below.

We will use the first of the filtered geoprocessing operations. To do this, double-click on it or right-click in the frame, and then choose “Launch”.  A new window is opened (see the picture shown below).

Choose “Locations” as the input coverages and “Political” as de the overlay layers. Learn more about geoprocessing operations work in the Help. Additionally, the user guide can be found by clicking on the information button at the bottom of the geoproccesing window.

When using this option, a temporary layer will be created. To save it, select this option or export the temporary one to a new layer.

Finally, click the OK button to complete the operation and a new layer is added to the View. If the “attribute table” is opened, we will see that the fields “Locations” and “Political” are added:
205_got

Let’s perform another geoproccesing operation now, over some of the items previously selected in the layer we just created, to analyze if the “Riverlands” kingdom dimension is logical in relation to the locations within it.

We will begin by selecting the records with “Riverlands” in the field “name_1” from the “Spatial Join” layer. Check out the post “Selecting Tools” in case you need more help. The result of the selection is shown in the picture below:
206_got

Let’s open now the “Toolbox” again to execute the geoprocess “Convex Hull”:

According to the Help, this geoprocess calculates the “Convex Hull” or the convex polygon with the smaller area that hulls all the vector elements of an “input layer”.

209_got

When performing the geoprocessing operation, the window shown below is opened:

Pick up “Spatial Join” layer as the input layer. Make sure the “Selected geometries” box is checked to perform this geoprocess only over the selected records. Click on “OK” button to create a new layer in which the area is pretty similar to the one in “Riverlands” kingdom:
211_got

That’s all for today. Once you have learnt how geoprocessing operations work… you just need to try them out…

There are only two posts left to finish this course.

Calling for gvSIG Community: gvSIG Desktop 2.4 translations

The new gvSIG 2.4 version is starting the stabilization phase, and in parallel the translations of the interface are being updated in order to have the final version with as many languages as possible.

Currently gvSIG is translated to more than 25 languages, thank to the participation of the Community.

There are two ways of collaboration: updating any of the existing languages, as well as translating gvSIG interface to a new language in which gvSIG is not translated currently.

If you are interested in translating gvSIG interface you can contact the gvSIG Project [info@gvsig.com] and we would send the instructions to do it.

Translations that aren’t finished when the final version is released will be published as a package to be loaded from the gvSIG Add-ons manager.

We expect your collaboration!

Announcing: mapguide-react-layout 0.9.1

This is a small bug fix release that brings updates to key libraries we use:

And includes the following fixes:
This release also has one small enhancement, the viewer now supports a mount option for specifying initial visibility of template elements (Legend, Task Pane, Selection Panel). Currently this will have the most impact when used with the Aqua and Sidebar viewer templates.

For other viewer templates, this new feature won't have much effect yet. For example, take the Slate template.


The very design of this template means that if you wanted all Legend/TaskPane/SelectionPanel to be hidden initially, you just cannot do it. Because they all reside in an accordion, one of these elements has to be visible. The original Fusion templates (at least slate from my memory) could conceivably have Legend/TaskPane/SelectionPanel all hidden because its sidebar was collapsible. That is not the case in this iteration of Slate (and the other ported templates with a sidebar). Having collapsible sidebars in these viewer templates will be a problem a future release will be fixing.

Finally, one thing that was actually possible in the 0.9 release, but I didn't really mention because I wanted to make sure this feature was working before actually announcing it is that Script Commands which is the InvokeScript replacement in mapguide-react-layout can be used with the standard viewer bundle. You no longer need to exclusively use the npm module to have support for Script Commands.

You can see an example of script command registration using the standard viewer bundle here.

QGIS WHY U NO PRINT DEBUG INFO

One of those days today where I burnt more time then I should on something that I din’t know about and spent way to much time searching for the wrong thing.

On a new install of Fedora I couldn’t get my QGIS to output any debug messages, even on my dev build running in the terminal, Qt Creator, or VS Code. Super frustraining to say the least.

Turns out the logging, at least on Fedora for Qt5, is disabled by default. You need to enable it by editing ~/.config/QtProject/qtlogging.ini and adding the following:

[Rules]
default.debug=true

Camino a gvSIG 2.4: Cambiando el aspecto de gvSIG. Nuevo juego de iconos

gvSIG utiliza el mismo juego de iconos desde hace ya un buen número de años, por lo que decidimos dar la posibilidad a los usuarios de poder cambiar los temas o juegos de iconos con facilidad. Para ello hemos generado un plugin del que hablaremos en otro post. En este queremos mostraros el excelente juego de iconos que ha creado Mario Fèvre de la empresa TreCC S.A. y las instrucciones para que podáis probarlo en gvSIG Desktop 2.4.

En paralelo a la creación de los paquetes, se ha generado una completa guía de estilo que de momento podéis consultar aquí.

Se han generado dos paquetes, con el juego de iconos a 16×16 y a 22×22. Este segundo juego de iconos cubre una de las demandas de parte de la comunidad gvSIG, que solicitaba poder trabajar con botones a mayor tamaño.

Los paquetes se pueden descargar en los siguientes enlaces:

Una vez descargados los podéis instalar por el ‘Administrador de paquetes’, de momento por la opción ‘Desde archivo’ (en la versión final ya estarán disponibles en el repositorio oficial). Para marcarlo como paquete instalable buscar el denominado ‘TreCC-icon-set’…22×22 o 16×16 según corresponda.

Una vez instalado tenéis que reiniciar gvSIG Desktop. Todo seguirá igual, falta un siguiente paso para indicar a la aplicación que queremos utilizar uno de los nuevos juegos de iconos.

Vamos a ‘Preferencias’ y seleccionamos el juego de iconos a utilizar en el apartado ‘General/Juego de iconos’, tal y como se muestra en la imagen:

Una vez realizada la operación reiniciamos gvSIG Desktop y ya podemos disfrutar del nuevo aspecto de nuestro SIG favorito. Por cierto, en los últimos builds no existe la posibilidad de volver al juego de iconos ‘clásico’ (recordar que estamos en fase de testeo y estabilización), aunque en futuros builds por supuesto estará contemplada esta opción.

Os dejo con un pequeño vídeo que recorre el nuevo aspecto que adopta gvSIG Desktop.

Por último comentar que gvSIG Desktop 2.4 saldrá con el juego de iconos ‘clásico’, ya que no sólo es al que están acostumbrados la mayoría de usuarios sino que también es al que se refiere toda la documentación existente, pero los nuevos iconos estarán disponibles en la aplicación para poder utilizarlos. Y ya, en futuras versiones, nos plantearemos que gvSIG pueda salir de base con un nuevo juego de iconos, teniendo el ‘clásico’ disponible para su uso.

The Open Source Support Company Trap

Matt Asay asks a question about big data vendors, who are from a business model point-of-view mostly “open source support” companies: HortonWorks as a pure-play and others as open-core and enhanced-oss models.

My experience has been that open source support companies fall into a market trap. They are supporting good projects, that are popular and widely deployed. It seems like a good place, but the market keeps constantly screwing them.

TL;DR

Potential open source support customers are either:

  • Small enough to need your expert support, but too small and cheap to supply company-supporting levels of revenue; or,
  • Large enough to figure it out for themselves, so either take a quick hit of consulting up front or just ignore you and self-support from the start.

Small Customers Suck

Small customers lack the technical wherewithal to use the product unassisted, so they need the support, but they are both highly price sensitive while also being a large drain on support hours (because they really need a lot of help).

You can drop your prices to try and load up a lot of these (“how do we do it? volume!”) but there are rarely enough fish in the pool to actually run the size of business you need to achieve sustainability.

How large? Large enough that the recurring revenue is enough to support sales, marketing, cost of sales, and a handful of core developers who aren’t tied to support contracts. Not huge, but well beyond the scale of a dev-and-friend-in-basement.

If you do drop your prices to try and bring in the small customers you immediately run into a problem with big customers, who will want big customer questions answered at your small customer price point.

Big Customers Suck, Then Leave

Big customers are frequently drawn to the scaling aspects of open source: deploy 1 instance, deploy 100, the capital cost remains the same.

In theory, there should be room in there for a “one throat to choak” support opportunity for big customers with big deployments, and with competent sales work up front, a good support deal will monetize at least some of the complexity inherent in a large deployment.

In practice, instead of being long term recurring revenue, the big customers end up being short term consulting gigs. A deal is signed, the customer’s team learns the ropes, with lots of support hours from top level devs on your team, and the deployment goes live. Then things settle down and there is a quick scaling back of support payments: year one is great, year two is OK, year three they’re backing away, year four they’re gone.

While there is room to grow a business on this terrain, particularly if the customers are Really Really Big, the constant fade-out of recurring revenue means that the business model is that of a high-end consultancy, not a recurring-revenue support company.

Tutorial para aprender a crear capas de eventos en gvSIG Desktop

Hoy os presentamos un vídeo-tutorial que nos enseña cómo crear una capa de eventos, una de las tareas que antes o después necesitaremos hacer con nuestro SIG. Una funcionalidad que complementa a la carga directa como capa de archivos xls y csv que está disponible en las últimas versiones de gvSIG Desktop.

¿Qué es un evento? En terminología SIG se suele denominar evento a cualquier fenómeno puntual susceptible de ser georreferenciado. Por tanto, una capa de eventos será una capa de puntos que tiene su origen en una Tabla que contiene entre sus atributos las coordenadas que permiten su georreferenciación.

GeoServer 2.10.4 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of GeoServer 2.10.4. Downloads are available (zipwardmg and exe) along with documentation and extensions.

This is a maintenance release of GeoServer suitable for production systems. Maintenance releases are focused on bug fixes and stability, rather than new features. This release is made in conjunction with GeoTools 16.4 and GeoWebCache 1.10.3.

This release is made by Torben Barsballe and Kevin Smith from the Boundless team. Special thanks to Nick Stires from Boundless and the Frank Warmerdam from OSGeo for their help setting up the new build.geoserver.org server used for this release. We would like to thank these volunteers and everyone who contributed features, fixes and time during the release process.

Security Considerations

The 2.10.3 release addressed three security vulnerabilities. Details of these vulnerabilities were not included in the 2.10.3 blog post to provide time for the fixes to be included in 2.11.1, and have been replicated here:

  • Added a configurable delay during login, to mitigate a brute force attack.
  • Added a configurable parameter to control clickjacking attacks against the GeoServer UI.
  • Added an additional parameter for locking down password autocomplete in the GeoServer UI

Thanks to Andrea Aime and Devon Tucker for providing fixes to these issues.

If you wish to report a security vulnerability, please visit our website for instructions on responsible reporting.

New Features and Improvements

  • Add rest endpoint for geofence admin rules
  • Add REST endpoint for a user to change their password
  • Allow disabling usage of SLD and SLD_BODY in WMS requests (also for virtual services)

Bug Fixes

  • Native JAI installation instructions report incorrect information about the installers
  • Downloading zip file using /rest/workspaces/<ws>/datastores/<ds>/file.shp doesn’t work after GeoServer reload
  • Virtual services do not play nice with GML 3 encoding
  • Namespace filtering on capabilties returns all layer groups (including the ones in other workspaces)
  • Cascaded WMS does not encrypt configuration password
  • Reloading GeoServer re-enables all disabled WMTS services
  • Slow WFS GetFeature when using a 3D bbox POST request
  • WMS cascading fails with NPE when advanced projection handling gets disabled
  • Style Editor Preview Legend Fails on non-SLD Styles
  • Exception when saving a layer group in GeoServer UI
  • JMS fails to handle styles workspaces changes
  • WFS-T Insert FeatureIds being returned in incorrect order
  • CSW get capabilities ingore virtual services settings and always use the global service ones
  • Integrated GWC does not work with layer and layer group specific services

And more! For more information on this release check the release notes ( 2.10.4 | 2.10.3 | 2.10.22.10.12.10.0 | 2.10-RC1 | 2.10-beta | 2.10-M0 )

About GeoServer 2.10

Articles, docs, blog posts and presentations:

Community modules

  • A new community module to backup/restore and restore GeoServer configuration
  • A resource browser is available allowing remote management of styles, icons and fonts (needs building from sources).
  • A new WMTS multidimensional domain discovery community module for discovering patches of data in scattered data sets

Geopaparazzi 5.4.0 is out

We just released Geopaparazzi 5.4.0 into the wild!

It all started with a bug fix to have a 5.3.2 that would be able to read the latest mapsforge maps. For some unknown reason the backward compatibility had been lost and geopaparazzi was no longer able to visualize newer mapsforge maps. Being the most important map used, that had to be fixed.

Then we noticed that also GPS import was broken. In fact the new plugin system had a bug. That also had to be fixed.

Then we fixed some smaller usability issues that had been reported, but this also was ok for a 5.3.2 bugfix release.

What made us decide to go for a 5.4.0, was a fantastic project we are doing with other members of the gvSIG Association for INEGI. INEGI is the National Institute of Statistics and Geography of Mexico and recently we won a tender to supply a whole GIS stack for Desktop-Server-Mobile.

At HydroloGIS we are obviously taking care of the mobile part and it is thrilling to know that INEGI invested in Geopaparazzi/gvSIG Mobile and that hundreds of technicians will use it to do their digital field surveys.

That project already brought in the previous release an important change which is the plugin system.

Recently it also added to geopaparazzi two important features:

1) support for unique values map theming in spatialite databases

Geopaparazzi now supports in readonly mode unique value styled spatialite layers.

We are used to a simple style in geopaparazzi:






Now you can do things like these...

Polygons:


Lines:


Points:


Looks quite nifty :-)

But now the problem... how do we make such a styled database?

We created a tool inside the JGrasstools Spatialtoobox, which means it will also get to gvSIG. Right now there are compatibility issues between the spatialite drivers of JGrasstools and gvSIG. We will probably get there for the 2.4.0 release.

In the meanwhile people interested can pick the standalone version of the JGrasstools' Spatialtoolbox, which can be downloaded here.

Just run the script jgt-spatialtoolbox.sh and look for the right module:



Now pay attention. This will import a folder of shapefiles into a newly created (or existing) spatialite database. If the shapefile has a style defined in an SLD file, then that will be used. So use your favorite SLD editor and create a unique values theme, and it will be inserted in the new database, geopaparazzi ready!

2) pdf export

The second interesting feature is the PDF export of form based notes.

For those users that couldn't care less of GIS and complex stuff, but only want to have a nice ordered list of the surveyed data, the PROJECT FORMS TO PDF button is the right choice:


This will export the content of the form based notes to PDF, trying to group the information nicely into tables, adding any image contained in the note.
Just to have an idea, this is how 2 random pages would look like:


That's it, huge thanks to INEGI for pushing this project and making geopaparazzi better!!

Camino a gvSIG 2.4: Biblioteca de símbolos de Planificación Urbanística y Territorial de la Comunitat Valenciana

Aunque está biblioteca de símbolos será útil principalmente a los usuarios de gvSIG de la Comunitat Valenciana es un claro ejemplo de bibliotecas similares que podrían realizarse para facilitar el trabajo de usuarios que se encuentran con una necesidad similar: trabajar con una simbología homogeneizada para un determinado caso de uso.

El Decreto 74/2016, de 10 de junio, del Consell, aprueba el Reglamento por el que se determina la referenciación cartográfica y los formatos de presentación de los instrumentos de planificación urbanística y territorial de la Comunitat Valenciana.

Este Decreto tiene entre otros objetivos el homogeneizar la simbología de la información urbanística, indicándose en el ‘Anexo III’ la estructura de capas, códigos de color de relleno, tipos de línea y símbolos.

Como sabéis en gvSIG Desktop es extremadamente fácil generar nuevas bibliotecas de símbolos, que además podemos convertir en paquetes que cualquier usuario pueda instalarse desde el ‘Administrador de complementos’.

Para facilitar el trabajo requerido por el citado Reglamento a los Ayuntamientos de la Comunitat Valenciana se ha generado esta nueva biblioteca que aunque estará disponible en el repositorio de plugins del próximo gvSIG Desktop 2.4, ya puede descargarse, instalarse y utilizarse.

Podéis descargar el paquete aquí.

En el siguiente vídeo os mostramos cómo instalarlo:

CURL Options and Availability Version

I’ve been adding support for arbitrary CURL options to http-pgsql, and have bumped up against the classic problem with linking external libraries: different functionality in different versions.

CURL has a huge collection of options, and different versions have different support, but for any given options, what versions support it? This turns out to be a fiddly question to answer in general. Each option has availability in the documentation page, but finding availability for every option is a pain.

So, I’ve scraped the documentation and put the answers in a CSV file, along with the hex-encoded version number that CURL exposes in #define LIBCURL_VERSION_NUM.

If you need to re-run the table as new versions come out, the Python script is also in the Gist.

Bugfixes

  • ImageMosaic returns an image with full mosaic footprint even when a single granule was selected
  • Cannot set up a heterogeneous CRS mosaic if granules are all in local CRSs
  • GeoPackage tile order inverted along y-axis
  • Band selection optimization in GridCoverageRenderer fails for the "paint" code path
  • ReadResolutionCalculator under-estimates the reading resolution in case one axis is stretched a lot more than the other
  • ImageWorker mosaic operation can return results with the wrong ROI
  • Stretched shield placement does not account for descenders in label
And more! For more information please see the release notes (16.4 | 16.3 16.2 | 16.1 | 16.0 | 16-RC1 | M0 | beta).

gvSIG Desktop 2.4 testing phase is starting

Good news for anybody who is waiting for the new gvSIG Desktop version. The builds publishing phase for testing has started already and the first tests are very positive.

Although we haven’t published any RC (Release Candidate) version yet, the most anxious users can download and test the different builds that will be released towards the final version (…when this post is released, the last build available is the number “2825”). These tests will be very useful to detect the errors that we haven’t detected. As you know you can communicate the errors through the mailing list or the project Redmine.

Where are we publishing the builds for testing? In:

http://downloads.gvsig.org/download/gvsig-desktop-testing/dists/2.4.0/builds/

If you access to the folder of a build, you will see that there are a lot of files published, and you will find the .run files for Linux and .exe for Windows in their different distributions (32 and 64 bits, and in the Linux distributions you will find them for Ubuntu 14.04 or lower, and higher).

In parallel to the stabilization of the version we will publish posts with the novelties of the gvSIG 2.4 version.

In addition, if you are interested in provide plugins to be included in this version, now it’s the moment to include them to be tested. If it’s your case you can contact us through the devel mailing lists or writing to the gvSIG Association mail address: info@gvsig.com

Learn GIS for free!

We are going to start to publish a series of videos that form a complete GIS course, using gvSIG Desktop for that. Together with these videos we will publish the data necessary to follow the exercises.

The course is recommended to everyone who hasn’t worked on GIS and want to introduce to this type of technologies, as well as users that have knowledge about it already and want to increase it.

The course is made on gvSIG 2.1 version, and currently the last version is gvSIG 2.3.1 (we are working on the new 2.4 version already). We recommend you to use the last version published because it will have all the functionalities of the previous versions… and several improvements too.

It’s usual to have doubts when you follow the course. If you want to solve them you can use the users mailing list, available at this link: http://www.gvsig.com/en/community/mailing-lists

We are starting with three introductory videos:

1.1 GIS data types and formats

1.2 The Spatial Reference System

1.3 gvSIG preferences setup

Enjoy!

Free and Open Source GIS Ramblings

Even more aggregations: QGIS point cluster renderer

In the previous post, I demonstrated the aggregation support in QGIS expressions. Another popular request is to aggregate or cluster point features that are close to each other. If you have been following the QGIS project on mailing list or social media, you probably remember the successful cluster renderer crowd-funding campaign by North Road.

The point cluster renderer is implemented and can be tested in the current developer version. The renderer is highly customizable, for example, by styling the cluster symbol and adjusting the distance between points that should be in the same cluster:

Beyond this basic use case, the point cluster renderer can also be combined with categorized visualizations and clusters symbols can be colored in the corresponding category color and scaled by cluster size, as demoed in this video by the developer Nyall Dawson:

Disponible guía de taller de gvSIG Batoví: Sistemas de Información Geográfica como herramienta educativa

El trabajo coordinado por Sergio Acosta para difundir el uso de los Sistemas de Información Geográfica en software libre en el ámbito educativo se merece todo el reconocimiento de la Comunidad gvSIG. No sólo están manteniendo y mejorando gvSIG Batoví, la distribución educativa de gvSIG Desktop, sino que además están realizando un continuo de actividades de capacitación para dar a conocer el potencial de gvSIG como herramienta educativa en la totalidad del territorio de Uruguay.

Dos talleres en Montevideo, uno de ellos con replica en la ciudad de Durazno (mediante video-conferencia), uno en Maldonado con réplica en la ciudad de Rivera y, finalmente, otro en Colonia del Sacramento con réplica en Paysandú.

Pero hablando de conocimiento libre, lo importante es que todo esto es totalmente replicable en cualquier parte del mundo. Y para ello no sólo os podéis basar en la experiencia de Uruguay, también podéis utilizar el material que están generando.

Así, la guía utilizada en estos talleres se ha liberado con acceso público, y podéis descargarla aquí:

https://gvsigbatovi.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/guc3ada-de-curso_versic3b3n-simplificada-y-portable-2-2-ubuntu.pdf

La mayor parte de esta guía puede seguirse con un gvSIG Destkop “estándar”, pero sin duda para aquellos que estén interesados en su aplicación al mundo educativo lo mejor es descargar e instalar gvSIG Batoví (en el vínculo podréis acceder a la versión para Ubuntu -en base a gvSIG 2.2- y desde Uruguay nos indican que pronto también estará para Windows -basada en la versión 2.3.1 de gvSIG-).

El taller parte de una pequeña introducción, luego explica cómo buscar datos espaciales y luego desplegarlos en el Batoví, un recorrido por las herramientas de navegación, selección y consulta, cómo combinar información (geográfica) de diferentes formatos (gráfica y en planilla), cómo exportar a otros formatos, cómo crear Información Geográfica, algunos geoprocesos como reproyección, recorte y finalmente la creación de un mapa de calor. El taller concluye explicando cómo armar una Vista y compartirla, así como describiendo algunos pasos básicos para crear un mapa y compartirlo.

Ni un estudiante sin su SIG libre…

Acceso a servicios de mapas (Google Maps, Bing Maps, OpenStreetMap, OGC) con gvSIG Desktop

Hoy día podemos trabajar en nuestro SIG libre con cartografías muy completas, varias de ellas a escala planetaria, sin tener ni un fichero en nuestro ordenador. Gracias a servicios de mapas estándar -destacando en WMS y el WMTS- y no estándar (pero muy populares) como OpenStreetMap, Google Maps o Bing Maps el disponer de cartografía base que cruzar con nuestras datos ha dejado de ser un problema.

Que estos datos sean externos no impide que podamos aplicar sobre ellos ciertos tipos de herramientas, del mismo modo que haríamos si trabajáramos con datos en local.

Aprender a trabajar con este tipo de datos es tan sencillo cómo dedicar unos minutos a ver el nuevo webinar publicado en el Máster de Valoración, Catastro y Sistemas de Información Territorial. Y todo ello en vuestro SIG favorito.
