comment Apportion Neighborhood Information to Census Tracts
To me it sounds like you merely want to assign to each tract the name of the neighborhood it falls in in which case you are talking memberships (a spatial join case) and not so much apportionment? The sentence about "proportionately allocate the AGEBS" is confusing, though. Care to clarify?

comment Couldn't load PyQGIS in QGIS 2.2 on Ubuntu 14.04
Another thing I changed was to set my PATH variable to use the system python installation rather than the anaconda one.

comment Couldn't load PyQGIS in QGIS 2.2 on Ubuntu 14.04
Not sure what happened--attempted nightly builds, ubuntugis, then build from source (had dependency issues there, too, so never got past cmake), but update manager came up; it ran an extensive list, and I tried again with the official repo, and the python plugin is now working again.

I did. I then switched gears, aiming to compile from source instead and am working through that process now.

comment Accessing existing instance of qgis from stand-alone python script
Indeed, I had not thought about all the conflicts that could entail. So this approach would 'drive' the ipython stuff from qgis, not the other way around, but that is clearly a way to Rome.

Thanks for the pointer. Will check out the STAC algorithm and see where it gets me.

comment Identify points near roadside in QGIS
Sounds like you need to decide how far from the road you will consider "along" it. Then run a buffer on your road feature and select points using that. Both functions are found under the vector menu, under Geoprocessing Tools and Research Tools, respectively.
