comment Free GIS workshops, tutorials, and applied learning material
@radek I was thinking more along the lines of existing documentation that individuals can download and do on their own free time. But if it's forthcoming and the material will be available for download later then I see no issue with that.

comment How to sum area of polygons by values occuring in multiple fields?
using an ORM like geoalchemy, how would you build the same query? I know it's a follow up question, but I think it's somewhat related to the OP's

comment Dealing with bridges and tunnels when modeling raster least cost paths?
@julie - WRT (1) As long as the peds are not trespassing, you might not want to build a model that encourages cross cutting even if it is the existing scenario. (2) There is prob. a way to grab centerlines from gaps in a polygon layer (new question?). Modelling wise, I would use regular road data and remove the edges with no sidewalks. I'll add trail data and manually trace whatever doesn't exist. Where roads and trails meet I'd create dummy nodes. The model would favours trails, roads, roads with no sidewalk, and then raster based data such that the route doesn't infringe anyone's property.

comment How to union polygons with common ID in QGIS?
A follow up question; how do you ensure that the boundaries matchup nicely after the dissolve? from experience, I find that I have to go back and remove or redissolve polygons
