comment Tools to help migration from Mapserver to QGIS Server
Possible duplicate question. Look at the answer to this question where someone was "Looking for a MAP to SLD converter": gis.stackexchange.com/questions/11715/…

comment QGIS 2.14.1 Processing Plug-In does not work anymore (Python error)
This issue is less of a GIS question and more of a software issue. I suggest removing qgis completely (uninstall) and then reinstall qgis and the plug in. After this try to install the plug in again. Could also be the plug in is not compatible withe 2.14.1 Unless it is native.

comment How can I calculate the canvas scale in QGIS print composer?
Good and precise answer to my question. Still wondering why the scale variable does not give a proper value.

comment Using SCP image classification to find swimming pools?
I second the note on trampolines. A mapping authority which shall remain anonymous contracted remote imagery tracing. The work was excellent, but to their surprise the area in question (high latitude) had just too many swimming pools. Some investigation led to the conclusion that swimming pools and trampolines are easy to mix up - even when the tracing is done manually.

comment Removing duplicate point labels in QGIS
Tried out your procedure and it worked. But QGIS has an issue with rendering stuff while it is being entered. So I ended up with a system which looked like it had stopped completely. And the number of objects did not help. So preprocessing data in postGIS could be an other approach to be tested out.

comment Removing duplicate point labels in QGIS
The layer has around 2.4 million points. I get a certain lag when applying your function. This might point to issuwes with QGIS. Seems like QGIS is doing requests to the layer continously when I am working in the expression window. But your solution looks great. Take a look at my comment to @RichardLaw though. Could it point to a better solution? Will require some "on-the-fly" spatial sql queries to be available even for esri geodatabases though.

comment Removing duplicate point labels in QGIS
@RichardLaw The underlying data model is sound. The Norwegian Mapping authority has allways done a good job in modelling their data. I am using one of their derived data products where names are represented associated with points. An idea from your input: If the data were stored in a spatial database I guess point buffering and subsequent dissolve over name could be a way to solve this. Not sure if I can query an eesri gdb-file that way. Other than that the solution provided by detlev looks very good.

I guess conditionals and regex probably could fix this.
