comment Is QGIS suitable to create maps with image popups?
Well, QGIS works fine with thematic mapping. You can create your map and then use the identifier to click on your marks and get data - though I am not sure you can view images.. Now, making an interactive map available in a web site is a different case. You would need to use tools such as openlayers api, geoserver, postgis etc. Not all of them necessarily. Google some info about interactive map sharing/publish etc.

comment Why is not ST_GeomFromEWKB() working?
Thank you for your help, it still does not really work though. What I am trying to do is get the distance from a given point to the nearest boundary. This point will always fall within a polygon - that is why I include st_boundary.

comment layer to KML conversion
I had some trouble converting to KML using arcmap. I found QGIS "save as KML" option to be quite handy!

comment What is the maximum Theoretical accuracy of GPS?
I use Arcmap to set my fixed test positions and then measure the distance from the GPS positions. The results that I stated above are average and rounded accuracy values for European countries (mostly UK, Spain and Germany )
