I am a GIS Analyst with a background in archaeology, computer science and general electronic tinkering. I generally know enough to get in way over my head and then work my way back out.

comment Computing distance of a georeferenced .jpg to each polygon (town) in a shapefile
Georeferencing the image simply places it in space relative to other data. It's still a raster, not a vector. To get the road and cities into a vector format you need to digitize the line and the points for the city. The link Fezter provided is probably the best place to start.

comment Strange things are afoot with the "Eliminate Polygon Parts' tool
I've encountered this error when coming at if from arcpy and the ArcGIS tool. Regarding the matter of the area, the polygon in question is about 1,000,000 square meters, so specifying an area condition at 1 billion is actually a larger area than the total polygon area.

comment using the “freehand” construction tool
That's a good one too - I really like using undo because you don't have to click anywhere. If you just screw up and click in totally the wrong spot you can just hit ctrl-z and carry on.

comment Are database client files platform specific?
So, are the files specific to QGIS and ArcGIS? Or is it just a matter of making a copy of the set in the ArcGIS folder so they are available to ESRI products as well?
