Note there are two ways of doing this. The way you are going about doing it is the long way but that is the way I am going to show how to do it here. The other way is by just going to Add Vector Layer and then selecting file and then browsing to where your .mdb file is located and opening the .mdb file. First, you need to make sure QGIS 32 bit version is ...

Sorry, Eva, but that is not possible in a easy way: gvSIG is a desktop software, so it has no webs service to share your project or views. On the other hand, I can advise you some solutions depending on what you really need: Static information: Export your views as image or PDF. Share a layer: You can export your layer as KML and load it in google Maps or ...

You should be able to use the Copy Features Tool on the layer with your selection, as long as the out_feature_class parameter is set to the path on disk of where you want the shapefile to be written out it should just work.

I recommend you research Microsoft Sql Server Express because it supports Spatial data as a native datatype. ArcGIS supports read/write to Sql Server Express. You have the full power of T-SQL at your disposal, allowing you to mix and match Attribute queries with Spatial queries, join tables, create views, index data, backup data. The scripting in Sql Server ...

Walter: the HUD data uses ID's for the blockgroups (BLKGRP) with single quotes around them... the TIGER blockgroup ID's (GEOID) do not have single quotes: I would say that you should create a new column using Excel / Open Office to truncate the first and last values from the field into the new column...but I can't remember how to do that right now!!! ...

You could accomplish most of these using Google Fusion Tables. Put together a list of facilities (company owned, company leased, government leased) on a map. Create a Fusion Table which lists those attributes, plus the address or lat/long of each facility Develop a system that can be easily updated by non-GIS users. Fusion Tables is a bit like Excel, ...

FME's MDB Reader is only a reader for pure tabular data (without geometry). It interpretes the shape column as some kind of binary data, but doesn't know that it contains geometry actually. Therefore the content then neither doesn't fit into the datatype FME initially uses for that nor does it know how to store any geometry into the SDE layer (again, ...

The tables are not being read because the user permissions (I believe for Admin) were not turned on inside the MS-Access DB. I turned them on for all the tables and QGIS loaded the tables (albeit somewhat slowly).

Here's the thing. Windows 64 bit stores the 64 bit odbcad.exe in the System32 folder. The one in the location that you're editing, c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe, is actually the 32 bit one. Hilarious right? 32 bit applications in the syswow64 folder, 64 bit applications in the System32 folder! There are reasons though. Now, for QGIS, add the ODBC driver ...

I have found that in addition to kreike's answer about installing the 32-bit driver in the proper place, I also needed to be using the 32-bit version of QGIS. The 64-bit QGIS doesn't seem to 'talk' to the 32-bit driver correctly (or it may not realize it's been placed in the SysWoWfolder).
