SimpleSVG is a Python plugin https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/simplesvg/ --> using PyQGIS! Therefore its source code should be the perfect example of how to export SVG from QGIS.

QGIS doesn't support text objects from TAB files. You can label the points in QGIS using the advanced label options. Pro Tip: Look at using map units for you label sizing to match how they look in MapInfo.

I think you are seeing that particular error message from this line of your code: arcpy.KMLToLayer_conversion( r"C:\Project\gis\layers" ,r'C:\Project\gis') arcpy.KMLToLayer_conversion expects a file as its first parameter (KML or KMZ) but you are giving it a folder name. You could try concatenating the contents of your filename variable, with the ...

It's been about 5 years since I've worked with Smallworld first hand, so this may be outdated. At that time, I was using version 4.1. Smallworld itself didn't, and I presume still doesn't, have any real exporting capability for spatial data outside of it's XML which uses a proprietary schema that doesn't mesh well with GML. The only commercial option ...

A very simple brute force approach: take the first points coordinates and convert them from ISN93 / Lambert 1993 to WGS84 degrees using cs2cs in the OSGEO4W shell cs2cs +init=epsg:3057 +to +init=epsg:4326 -f "%%.8f" <ISN93.txt >WGS84.txt build a local omerc CRS on that point, with the "local coordinates" as false Easting and Northing convert the ...

It's been a while since I tried this but it is fairly easy as GML is an output format like any other in OGR. So you should be able to take the tutorial from http://www.gdal.org/ogr_apitut.html and change "ESRI Shapefile" to "GML" compile and run it.

Generally speaking, this is called hex-encoded WKB. This specific example is the extended version, called EWKB, since it has SRID=4326 as found by E6100000. WKB can be viewed in a few forms. The hex-encoded string representation is the most common, which if it is actually text can be converted using a simple ::geometry cast: SELECT ST_AsText(wkb_geometry), ...

Using the WMS tile service from http://lasigpublic.nerc-lancaster.ac.uk/arcgis/services/LandCoverMap/LCM2007_GB_25m_V2/MapServer/WMSServer can load the Landcover tiles in with QGIS You can save out for local files or create vector file from raster using the grass tools (r.to.vect)

The CEH data is a single band greyscale Tiff that has an Esri .lyr file associated with it to style it with the appropriate colours. This is not the most straightforward option for this dataset but it is consistent with other datasets that have multiple colour schemes. Digimap now provide a QML file along with the Layer file to make the data more ...

The only difference between LAS 1.2 and LAS 1.3 is the ability to store returns together with a references to the full waveform data. This ONLY is the case for point types 4 and 5. Most of the time people use point types 1 or 3. In this case (if you use point types 0, 1, 2, or 3) there is no difference between LAS 1.2 and LAS 1.3. If you need to "upconvert" ...

Unfortunately TerraScan does not have full read/write capabilities for LAS specification after version 1.2. Unless you have access to GeoCue and/or LP360, you must process and classify your pointcloud in 1.2 and then convert to 1.3/1.4 at the end. GeoCue released some documentation about this. While not specifically about 1.3, Lewis Graham discusses 1.4 ...

Shapefiles utilize dBase-III+ date values ('D' type), which are restricted to day resolution. If you need second resolution, you'll need to use a personal, file, or enterprise geodatabase. It would probably be best to round the fractional seconds to the nearest second, since Desktop's time structure (struct tm) doesn't support subsecond precision at this ...
