comment Can I move points by editing x/y in attribute table?
A rapid way to 'see' the real coordinates out of a shapefile, open the attribute table in QGIS, invert the selection (so that all are selected), copy to clipboard, and with CTRL V paste into your favourite spreadsheet program. The first two columns will be the coordinates in the form of WKT (Well Known Text) which works for points, lines, polygons. To import back into QGIS via the Delimited Text importer, you may have to edit out all the " . Notepad++ is the weapon of choice for that. At least all that works w QGIS 1.8 on Win7.

comment Analyse spatial data and extract results in tabular form in QGIS
There is good support for spatial analysis rasters in QGIS, if that is what form the geological information is in.

comment Editing a KML file or converting KML to Editable format with attributes
Converting to a shapefile is your best bet. How much control of the original kml do you have?

comment Editing a KML file or converting KML to Editable format with attributes
To clarify structure, an ideal structure would be to have only polygons in one file, lines in another, points in a third kml file. Some key field names in kml are 'name' and 'description' If you are saving from a shapefile to kml, naming two of the attibutes 'name, description' will often help to get a successful export.

comment How to edit Shapefile Attributes?
But be sure not to change the order of rows. Don't sort data and don't add/delete rows. You may find that Access interferes with the formatting of data, you may have more repeatable results with libreoffice.

comment Is there a way to load a kml raster super-overlay in QGIS?
So maybe you are more concerned with the performance of the server and it's engine? I am not even a novice in this dept, but propose to you Postgis 2.0 with raster functionality.

Maybe you need to consider different projects as different scenarios. Various projects can use some common layers and have their own specific layers.

Who are the target users of your project? Will they indeed have QGIS as a client? To my way of thinking, this is the reasoning for using GE, it has a wider/different set of users.

comment Is it possible to increase/reduce features proportionally?
Probably need more detail on the purpose, do you want to have one point fixed and the other 3 sides change, or the centroid fixed, the operation occurs with the mouse and some eyeball extent or by a ratio input to a dialog?
