Here’s an example of just some of the things QGIS can do. In particular, I am using some of my own data collected at the relatively recent Leicester Belgrave Mela from audience members. (Thanks to the Mela for doing the fieldwork!)
- Just viewing OpenStreetMap (OSM) data in QGIS. Until we specifically download polygons/points/lines QGIS is only really doing the same job as a web browser at this stage but it is obviously very handy to not have to download a whole map to even get started. This also means the most recent data is available.
Check me the hell out, I’m being politically engaged.
I submitted the following brief piece to the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group under their call for evidence, which is very very shortly now going forward to a proper, six session long parliamentary inquiry on the topic of: “Cycling is great. Let’s do more of it.”
Will it get used? God knows, probably not that important in the grand scheme of things but I will certainly wet my pants with excitement if it does.
