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 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 ...

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 ...

"QGIS Browser.app is located in QGIS.app/Contents/MacOS/bin. For ease of launching, make a symlink or Finder alias to it." from https://github.com/qgis/Quantum-GIS/pull/197

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 ...

A CSVT file is just a plain text file that you create with the extension .csvt. The file has a single line with the types for each column: "Integer","Real","String" Make sure there are no spaces between each , or type.

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

From your problem description, it seems ok to just get the data out somehow. Try GDB Flee, an online tool to convert GDBs into open formats.

Shapely is a Python module and not a QGIS plugin. Therefore you must use the terminal (Terminal.app) and not the QGIS python console to install shapely.

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 ...

What's the path to pg_config? You probably want to run that and use the values of INCLUDEDIR, PKGINCLUDEDIR and INCLUDEDIR-SERVER before you run ./configure

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 ...

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: ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

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 use a Mac and QGIS from KyngChaos, then download the MrSID plugin of KyngChaos: Framewoks

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 ...

Sorry, but there is no simple solution. The versions of KyngChaos and Dakota use the Apple Python because it is the only way to be sure that the Python executable is in /usr/bin and the site-packages folder in /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages which is not the case with the others versions of Python. What is your problem ? I use Python 2.6, 2.7.6 and 3.3 ...

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
