Unless you have good reasons not to, I'd definitely recommend starting with the OSGeo4W installer, which can install multiple different versions of GDAL and their relevant Python bindings. It works great and dramatically simplifies the Windows deployment story. Specifically, you'll want to install pkg-gdal-python, which is within 'Libs' in the installer ...

Install native GDAL on Windows for 32/64-bit versions, currently Python 2.6 to Python 3.3: http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#gdal So far, I'm impressed with the quality of this Python distribution for Windows. Not only is it a recent version of GDAL (presently 1.9.2), but no external libraries need to be added or managed. (It includes gdal19.dll, ...

You don't have to worry about any of those prerequisites when installing PostGIS on Windows. You just need to install the Postgresql installer for your platform. You can then launch the Application Stack Builder to install PostGIS. You can find more detailed installation instructions at the Boston GIS web site.

Sure, just go to the options dialog: Préférences->Options->Langue (Settings->Options->Locale) Check Forcer la nationalité du système (Override system locale) and set you language in there.

In Portugal, the citizen card which offers an authentication and digital signature service that works via browsers puts older qt dll's in windows\system32. Renaming these stops these services from running... You can copy QGIS Qtcore4.dll and QtGui4.dll to the folder where qgis.exe is placed. This works without renaming the older dll's. The reason this works ...

Just use OSGeo4W and install the gdal-filegdb package. I compiled and uploaded the binaries to include them as part of the distribution. How to get ".GDB" (Esri File Geodatabase) support in Quantum GIS (osgeo4w - qgis) has a step by step recipe.

That's a classic DLL conflict. To resolve it, search for duplicates of the DLL in Windows system folders and rename them to e.g. QtCore4.dll.bak.

One workaround is just to go for the raw data, since this is a very simple file format. Not for everyone, but it can be illuminating to see what is happening. ## all these details are in the .HDR file NROWS <- 6000 NCOLS <- 4800 At this point you can try the different options for integer sign and endianness directly, and reading ...

Celenius, If you don't use the -t option with size dimensions, then your raster file will come in as a single record. I just noticed an error in the docs which is probably what's confusing you. I'll fix that. The -t should always be followed by a widthxheight. If you want it to be chunked say in 100x100 pixel width height -- as Mapperz says -- use the ...

Basically pick a computer as a server, install the OS and database software, open the firewall for port 5432, modify the postgresql.conf and pg_hba.conf files to allow external access, and serve the data to the other computers. These are the same instructions for setting up a server on either Windows or Linux, except one OS is free. Most folks would pick ...

Here is another tutorial which explains very simple and easy way of installing GDAL v1.8 with Python v2.7 on a Windows XP/7 system. http://cartometric.com/blog/2011/10/17/install-gdal-on-windows/

The solution, translated below, is given on http://osgeo-org.1560.n6.nabble.com/Entry-Point-Not-Found-td3732316.html On OSGeo4W installing version: 1. Find path: C:\OSGeo4W\bin 2. Copy all files to location: C:\OSGeo4W\apps\qgis\bin\ On Standalone installing version 1. Find path: C:\programs (or program files) \Quantum GIS Wroclaw\bin\ 2. Copy all ...

Most of the GIS packages I have used have excellent mapping tools. I can produce very good maps with QGIS for instance. So that's an option, if you can't run to the cost of ArcGIS. Yes it is a little more fiddly to get the exact result you want but excellent maps are perfectly possible. I am able to produce large maps with QGIS - but you have to ...

All Windows operating systems (32-bit/64-bit) are supported by Quantum GIS. I could install QGIS on latest Windows 8.1 Preview too.

GDAL runs on most platforms, including Windows, so I'm not sure where you get the idea it only runs on Macs! The easiest way of getting installed on your machine is to download OSGeo4W, which is an installer for all manner of desktop GIS goodness, from which you can just choose GDAL/OGR. Once you've done that, you can use the command line tool gdalwarp to ...

The issue seems to be caused by a problem recognising the fact that the data is in signed 2 byte integer format. It is wrongly interpreted as unsigned 2 byte integer format. Therefore your nodata value of -9999 becomes: 2bytes=256*256 -9999 = 55537 What I find strange is that min value : -9999 and max value : 5483 are the same for both windows and mac. ...

There are some issues with this file or with GDAL. I am using windows 7 R version 2.13.1 (2011-07-08) Platform: x86_64-pc-mingw32/x64 (64-bit) and > getGDALVersionInfo() [1] "GDAL 1.7.2, released 2010/04/23" > GDALinfo('E020N90.DEM') rows 6000 columns 4800 bands 1 origin.x 20 origin.y 40 res.x ...

Using ArcCatalog (or the ArcCatalog toolbox from ArcMap), create a new shapefile and check 'Coordinates will contain Z values.'. Set the spatial reference, including the vertical SR. In ArcMap, start an edit session, create a feature (doesn't matter if its point/line/polygon). Once the feature is created, select it (still in an edit session) and click ...

Try using the SetWindowPos winapi call with the hWnd of the dockable window control (or maybe it's parent or grandparent container control) with the HWND_TOP flag.

I have copied findstr.exe (it should be in system32 folder) in the same folder of this.exe, and I have solved.

It shouldn't be a problem to have several Python/GDAL installations on a single Windows computer. For example, let me count how many GDAL installations are on my 64-bit work PC: ArcGIS 10.0 with bundled Python 2.6 (32-bit). I only use this Python installation for Esri things Python 2.7 (64-bit) with GDAL, etc. Good for using lots of RAM (and I really do ...

In QGIS you can use the Affine functions for scaling vector features. In the Vector menu: And the dialog looks like this: If you enter 1.3 in both the "Scale X" and "Scale Y" boxes, then the layer (or just the selected feature(s) will be scaled up by 130%. This operation will scale the features proportionally, but be aware that depending on the ...

Download SAGA from http://sourceforge.net/projects/saga-gis/files/ Under processing choose options and configuration. There choose SAGA and make sure the path points to the directory to which you installed saga.

Another current, very easy option for downloading the gdal binaries is at Christoph Gohlke’s site Thanks to blog post at http://fuzzytolerance.info/code/postgis-raster-ftw/ for the link.

I know The OSGEO installer was mentioned, but as GuidoS said it doesn't work unless you're on the osgeow shell, which is fine and dandy if all you're doing is basic python. Chances are if you're not, you either have to reinstall the package and then have to run your app/plugin from that folder or have to compile all the dependencies for gdal and install it ...

If you change to the directory of the DLL that you need to register you should be able to type just the DLL name without having to worry about directory names with spaces. So, in your case, cd to "C:\Program Files (x86)\MyExtension" and then run the following: ESRIRegAsm myextension.dll /p:desktop

From: http://karlinapp.ethz.ch/qgis_wms/configuration/ You need to have a webserver installed (e.g. Apache) and place the files for the QGIS mapserver in the FastCGI or CGI directory of your webserver. On Windows, QGIS mapserver currently can only be used as a CGI application. You also need to make sure the webserver finds ...

I like MerseyViking's answer but would suggest a slightly different workflow, still using FWTools though. Define the LCC projection: if nonstandard, define projection by adding definition in epsg file of proj4. See this article for an example. Merge all 30 images into a virtual mosaic: most easily done in GDAL using a VRT Create tiles in (Google) ...

I've updated the instructions on the website. Hope it's a bit clearer. Nicklas is right you don't really need the makepostgis.bat if you just copy the like folders to your postgresql install (you could also remark out the create db in it since it does copy all the files). You should be able to just overlay ontop since the zip structure is the same as ...
