OSGeo4W is, well, OSGeo "for Windows", so it is not what you are looking for. I have not done it myself, but other people have, so I know it works. I would recommend you get the KyngChaos binaries for QGIS compile the OGR FileGDB driver (which will produce a "dylib" file on the Mac) drop the dylib on the plugins directory of GDAL on the Mac. I believe ...

You should verify that you can connect using psql. Try psql -U username -h localhost dbname. It should prompt for a password then connect. Run SELECT postgis_version(); to verify that PostGIS is active in the database. If you can connect but SELECT postgis_version() reports an error, PostGIS isn't installed in the database: ERROR: function ...

You will need to do some formatting of your data to make them into polygons. Merely labeling a field as WKT will not help. If you have a lot of files (which it sounds like you do), the most effective way will be to automate your solution by writing a script. I was going to explain how when I decided that the simplest way would be to write an example script ...

You are trying to mix different things: 1) You want to use the Homebrew version of QGIS: Everything must be installed by Homebrew as binaries and libraries in /usr/local/Cellar with symbolic links in /usr/local/bin, GDAL/OGR, QGIS, .... the Homebrew QGIS version uses the Homebrew Python version with modules in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages All ...

You have a few options: PostGIS 2 has support for TIN and some other 3D objects. GRASS has support via an add-on. See this how-to document. QGIS has an Interpolation plugin (see here) Roll-your-own by importing the GDAL libraries into a 3D modelling package such as Blender (I do it this way a lot because I want interactive 3D model rather than for ...

No, the GPX driver of GDAL which is used by Qgis for Save As does not know how to handle polygon geometries, and throws an error. But you can convert the polygon into a line geometry using Vector->Geometry-Tools->Polygon to line, and export the resulting new shapefile to GPX. Most probably you want to add FORCE_GPX_TRACK=YES in the layer creation ...

Use gdal_translate. Here are some instructions on its use: http://www.gdal.org/gdal_translate.html Here is the download page including some information about setting it up in Mountain Lion: http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/DownloadingGdalBinaries http://www.kyngchaos.com/software:frameworks If you want to build it yourself: ...

The QGIS version of Mac OS X (Dufour - KyngChaos) uses GDAL 1.10.1 While the standalone Windows version use GDAL 1.9.X (32 bits) or GDAL 1.10.0 (64 bits) and It seems that the Windows 2.0 standalone installer is packaged wrong. It seems to include outdated and removed plugins. plugin_installer, osm_export, mapserver_export. None of these work ...

You can install libLAS: compiling it (Using “XCode” on OS X) installing it with Homebrew (Homebrew Formulas: Liblas) Or you can use GRASS GRASS GIS Wiki: Lidar or Cloud Compare with a new Mac OS X port Mac OS X: CloudCompare

I run qgis on all three platforms (Mac OSX, Windows(XP and 7), and Linux (Ubuntu)). @DavidF is correct. Mac can not read .mdb by default because it is a proprietary format that Microsoft is not big on sharing and Apple does not want to pay to license. Installing the mdbtools is the answer to your problem. Be aware, it will not run like it does on a windows ...

It is a recurrent question: the module is Shapely and it is a pure Python module and not a QGIS plugin. (Shapely.geometry is part of the Shapely module). QGIS on Mac OS X use the default Apple install of Python (Mac OS X is a UNIX, like Linux) Windows does not have Python installed by default, so QGIS must install its own version of Python where Shapely is ...

Using the node tool, when you select a node it turns blue. Then, hold the [fn] key and then press [delete]. That will emulate the [Delete] key on Windoxs/Unix. I just tested this on 1.8 on a MacBook Pro. EDIT: For point #3, you can select multiple vectors (also called features) with one of the "Select Features" tools. Here is a picture of the options: ...

To use the split tool, you want to left click at least twice to create the line that will split your existing line, then after the 2nd left click you right click to finish the process. I was kind of able to duplicate the behavior you're seeing when I left clicked to start the split line, then right clicked at it's end point. The green X would appear, and ...

For Mac, Georeferencer is still missing, see http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-user/2011-November/014269.html http://hub.qgis.org/issues/3743 http://hub.qgis.org/issues/4289. http://osgeo-org.1560.n6.nabble.com/Georeferencer-bug-3743-fix-td4683688.html You could install Oracle Virtual Box, and set up an Ubuntu operating system with ...

You can download Mac OS X installers from this website: http://www.kyngchaos.com/software/postgres I don't know this is compatible with what you installed using brew, but the PostgreSQL/PostGIS binaries you can get from that website should work well, too.

GDAL is a free geospatial raster translation program that will convert USGS sdts dem to USGS asci dem. A Mac installer is available here gdal installers. I'm unfamiliar with a Mac, but you will run gdal_translate.exe from a command line. Something like gdal_translate -of USGSDEM 1661629.DEM.SDTS. -of is the output format. The gdal_translate command help ...

If you install the 2. version It will overwrite the 1.8 version (QGIS.app). But,I use everyday versions 1.8, 2. and master on Mac OSX 10.6.8 without problem (often at the same time). So, the only thing you need to do is to rename the version 1.8 in QGIS1.8.app , otherwise, it will be deleted (QGIS.app)

Read through installation guide for installing ArcGIS Server on the chosen OS. Here is the link for Windows. Go for ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 directly, no need to install 10.1 first since 10.1 SP1 is anyway a full installation (not like you did in 10.0 and earlier). Make sure you have met the system requirements. Since you have a VMWare, make sure to choose a ...

QGIS and the server behind Overpass API are not able to handle large area requests. If you need that amount of data, think about downloading pbf extracts from Geofabrik filter the data for the items you really want with direct Overpass API calls set up a local postgis database for your area of interest with a suitable Geofabrik extract

This is a bit off-topic, but it's an easy fix. In the BASH shell, the colon character is used to separate paths in a list, and the ${PATH} evaluates to whatever the PATH environment variable was. So you can either add the GDAL path as a separate line: PATH=/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin:${PATH} ...

First, you'll have to compile GDAL with ESRI FileGDB support. Once you've done that, you can then use this build of GDAL in a KyngChaos build of QGIS. On your terminal: # save your current GDAL so you can put it back if you want cp /Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/1.8/GDAL /Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/1.8/GDAL_orig # symlink the ...

One method you might try to get GRASS commands to work in SEXTANTE involves how QGIS locates the external binaries needed to run those commands. Unless given explicitly defined paths, subprocesses in Python use the PATH environment variable to search for external binaries. For GUI apps on Mac OS X, only /usr paths are searched for binaries, not /usr/local ...

Ok, in fact, the problem was PostGIS not activated in Postgres.app out of the box. And when we want to CREATE EXTENSION postgis, we have this error: ERROR: could not load library "/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/rtpostgis-2.0.so": dlopen(/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/rtpostgis-2.0.so, 10): Library not loaded: ...

A little background: after lots of issues with OSX involving Python I did a clean install of the OS. Then Kyngchaos for QGIS, worked like a charm. Then tried to get Spyder, iPython, Pandas to run. No joy. Used MacPorts and after some pain in the posterior stuff it worked. QGIS didn't! Same error as Barak above. In Bash python running 2.7.3 In QGIS python ...

Context: I believe this is a Mac issue. I had the same thing with QGIS 1.8.0 and HEAD (d68524) built with homebrew on OSX 10.7.5. It appeared after rebooting for the first time in a long time (initially the shutdown hung, so I did hard power off and booted up, then rebooted a second time, cleanly). Symptoms: After this the menu bar at the top of the screen ...

As mentioned by danagerous, kyngchaos keeps an archive of past versions: http://kyngchaos.com/software/archive QGIS 1.7.0-3 runs on my Macbook Pro 1,1 (32-bit Intel Core Duo) with Snow Leopard (10.6.8). Alternatively, I've had success compiling QGIS 1.8 using MacPorts: http://www.macports.org/ It took a while to build all the dependencies, but once it's ...

It is always the same problem of PATH: the QGIS version of Kyngchaos uses exclusively the standard Python installed in Mac OS X and not those installed from Python.org, with Homebrew, MacPorts or Fink, see my answer in QGIS Python version.

The QGIS version of Kyngchaos uses exclusively the standard Python installed in Mac OS X and not those installed from Python.org, with Homebrew, MacPorts or Fink. It is a problem of symbolic link in usr/bin. Normally the symbolic link of Python points to /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python When you install one of the ...

If you install QGIS 1.8.0 from KyngChaos and QGIS 1.9 from Nightly Mac Build of QGIS from 'master' Branch, they need the same version of GDAL (the 1.9 version of Kynchaos, not the 1.8) and you need to understand some Principles of Mac OSX: GDAL is a framework (What are Frameworks?) installed in /Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework. And all the versions of ...
