comment Geometric functions in field calculator in QGIS
Could you add some specific examples of what kind of geometric functions you'd like to do, to a specific dataset? You may find that the operations you'd like to do aren't appropriate for individual fields and rows in a vector layer.

comment Converting osm file to shapefile (or data frame) in R
What do you want to do with the road files - just display them on a map, or some kind of analysis? Shapefiles have some limitations; you may be better off using another format!

comment How to auto-generate map images with different styles in QGIS?
Nice solution. The possibilities for using expressions to drive styles seems enormous - would be great to see more examples of it in use.

comment When is Geographic Weighted Regression used and why?
Could you share some of the research you've been doing (links / summaries)? Better yet, how might GWR relate to a specific problem or application you're facing? As it stands, your question may be too broad for many people to want to tackle it.

comment Calculation size limit to creating distance matrix using QGIS?
Welcome to GIS.se! How many nodes are in the distance matrix you're using? Have you tried this with a much smaller sample of the nodes, say 5-6, to see if it's working?

Peter - nicely commented and useful code - good framework for others to use, wish we had more examples like this in the documentation! @MSBilgin, did this work for you?
