Institutional, centralized QGIS installation/configuration (QGIS.de)
QGIS more and more get’s to be installed ‘organisation wide’ by Windows Administrators (eg using SCCM, now Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager ), instead of personal installations by the GIS-people on their personal machines.
I get more and more questions about this (eg here)
So a short post about this. The good thing is that peeps from the QGIS user group Germany wrote a (also in english translated) page with A LOT of information and tips about how to do this. So I’m not going to copy that.
So for everybody wondering how to install QGIS with standard configuration or plugins:
READ https://qgis.de/doku.php?id=site:deployment:zentral_en . Thanks QGIS.de!
If you wonder about the loading order etc of all those settings, have a look into the code around here
Python development with PyCharm
Another pointing to… if you develop Python Plugins, and use PyCharm as IDE, read: about how to setup your IDE properly so PyCharm finds all QGIS and PyQt functions. Thanks Tudor!
Testing QGIS fixes on Windows
And as I am now crosslinking away, have a look at: https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/issues/39081
It shows the example about somebody having an issue, being fixed, and then being able to immediately test AND use the fix. By downloading that precise fixed QGIS. Very nice if you really really need that fix for your work TODAY. Disclaimer: in those QGIS applications NOT everybody is working (most notably Python stuff), it is not a full QGIS build like the ‘nightly builds’. Which are full installations of current development branch.

Versie 3.5.0 van de PDOKServicesPlugin
OK, this is a short post to let the dutchies know there is a new version 3.5.0 of the PDOKServicesPlugin to load some of our national data as WMS, WFS or WCS.
For example: the GeoMorphological map of The Netherlands, or the data of the accidents that happened from 2008 till 2018. Here combined in one scary map of my surroundings: Read More

Select by location: hoe zit dat met die opties?
Currently, there’s around 20 persons in Bucharest working on QGIS development during the Contributors Meeting. And because the name of the hackfest is changed from developers meeting to contributors meeting, I now feel welcome too (as a non-coding contributor).
So what can I do, as a non-coding QGIS fan? Write documentation! I just started with some documentation that I really thought should be better. I even used it as a (bad) example in a presentation at the FOSS4GNL, titled “what we can learn from esri”. And I
