The co-founder of webkid.io and interactive developer Moritz Klack recently shared a tweet about the Pixel Map Generator which is a nice addition to my recent “comparison” of different web mapping tools like AGOL, cartoDB and others. So let’s check it out.
When I started to work on QGIS2leaf about one year ago it was a nice idea and my first real dive into Python programming and using the possibilities of pyqgis. So what is the current state and where are we going? Please, come and take a look: Happy Birthday QGIS2leaf!
I was playing around with ArcPY and tried to recreate a version of the qgis2leaf plugin just for ArcGIS just to get to know that ArcGIS doesn’t seem to have native support for GeoJSON. So I’ll not show you how to build a leaflet map from within ArcGIS but I would like to show you some basic tasks in ArcPY by exporting a point shapefile to a CSV.
It was just a small idea but I haven’t slept much since it came to my mind to build a plugin fo QGIS. It should create a basic webmap from your current layers without coding and with popup functionality and changeable basemaps using leaflet. Meet my new daughter: qgis2leaf!
In our last session we started with some topographic “pre”-map as we prepared everything to create a printable map with QGIS which shows heights in a special area. As the map creation itself is somehow very detailed I’ll show you just basic steps so can go into detail with typo and positioning for yourself.
