I am a freelance GIS consultant with specialities in 3D visualisation (e.g. www.deepmaps.co.uk and animated landscape models for public participation in planning), wind farm analysis and bespoke geospatial analysis.

Previously I have lead a small commercial GIS consultancy team in a large research institute, headed up a team undertaking a massive geo-data processing endeavour of entire country and world-wide data sets as part of an ambitious computer games development project before becoming GeoMatics Manager for the UK branch of a German wind farm company.

I 'grew up' on ArcInfo 6.x and migrated to ArcGIS, while dabbling with Idrisi and ERDAS Imagine. I now predominantly use open source software (e.g. GDAL/OGR, Shapely, PostGIS, OpenLayers, QGIS, GRASS, Mapnik etc.) and highly commend the OSGeo 'stable' to anybody looking for an alternative to expensive proprietary GIS solutions. Other experience includes WindPro, WindFarm, OpenWind, Blender, GIMP, Python and Eclipse.

comment How to access properties and methods of the non stable version of openlayers 3?
You CAN get the "bleeding-edge" releases. See my edit above (for instance, at the time of writing, a quick glance showed the latest update was only 21 hours old). The link you need is on the download page.

comment Why QGIS Raster clipper does not work on reprojected layers?
If you simply swapped the points (both x and Y) then of course you will get the same error because your X dimension will now be negative. Swap only the Y values. It describes the same area and keeps both dimensions positive.

comment QGIS Print Composer not exporting
Welcome to GIS SE. Can you give us some more details including which version of QGIS you are using, the page size, output resolution, indication of the complexity of the map and the content of any error messages?

comment Problem rasterizing
+1 Michael - Though I think the problem is not ignoring the lines but the density of lines in comparison to the raster cell size. The apparent cell size of the raster in the image appears to be considerably larger than any flow line. If the raster is just a Boolean (stream vs no stream), then I am not surprised QGIS gives 1 everywhere as every cell will contain at least one flow line!
