Whats to say... well I'm a geek, I've always been a geek and I'll always be a geek.

I love writing software and tinkering with computer related stuff in general.

I run my own I.T consultancy company called "Digital Solutions Computer Software UK", I'm a Pluralsight author and the UK & Europe group manager for Lidnug (One of the largest .NET related user groups on the Linked-In network)

I'm a Microsoft Community Leader, presenter & lecturer of development related topics, oh and a Write a few computer books here and there for things like the Syncfusion Succinctly range.

I work across Linux, Unix, Windows and use lots of different languages in order to ply my trade, I've been working in I.T now for the best part of 30 years and will probably be here for at least another 30.

comment Why do I get these bands on my Height/Dem/Raster
As well as my previous update, Iv'e even gone through your process manually, doing each shape merge by hand, using exactly the same command line as yourself, but no joy.

Addendum to my update above : I do notice, particularly the band that is closest to where I live, does actually coincide with a grid square line, however , manual examination of the data shows no gaps.

comment Why do I get these bands on my Height/Dem/Raster
Awesome, I'll give that a try over the weekend. I did think of using GDal directly (I have numerous scrips from joining the OS Vector map district) [ Why do the OS make it so bloody difficult? :-( ] , anyway I was being lazy, and up until now I've not had a problem with the QGis joiner. I'll update once I know if this solves the issue.

yup, just go to the OS open data site, download the meridian 2 map, gridded height for the entire uk is in there in shapefiles along with other shapefiles for other assets. As per my description I just combined the NZ tiles. RE: your comment, again I checked, and there is (or appears to be) continuous coverage from previous tile to next tile with no gaps, where QGis has joined the shapes

Yea, that thought had crossed my mind too, so I went through the data manually (Painful I can tell you) and couldn't find any 0 values at all. :-(

comment Looking for qml specification
There is a DTD already available. Take any QML file produced by QGis, look at the first line in the file, the DTD location is specified right there.

Hi BradHards, thanks for that tip, I already have spatial indexes on the required tables.

comment Can someone give the absolute lowdown on the following list of spatial operators
Hi Luke. I did originally try using an MBR, but then realized I can't rotate it. Unfortunately I have to rotate the box to point in the direction of a GPS bearing so it has to be a polygon. Thanks for the suggestion though.
