comment How can I tell who owns a particular piece of property on a map?
This is a massive privacy concern. Most places have this information, but it is controlled by local authorities. Many of them do not have it digitally-spatially available. You may have a very tough time finding what you want, especially if you want it for free.

comment Error installing Photo2Shape QGIS 2.6 for Mac
Thanks @gene. I think I resolved it, the folders were hidden. I downloaded the module and placed it in the site-packages location. Thanks for the help

comment Error installing Photo2Shape QGIS 2.6 for Mac
Please excuse my ignorance, as I am a new convert to Mac from Windows. I used terminal to install ExifRead, so I am not sure where it "went". Is there a manual process I can do, to ensure it goes where it needs to? I do not have that path /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages I do not even have the Python folder.

comment How to calculate the volume?
Intersect the pit locations with your TIN to find where you have locations of 60degrees. Then just analyze those locations

comment Mapping Trails with GPS - Hardware Suggestions
@mwil you are correct, but if you read the paper, you will see that we used a USB GPS addition to the Apple iDevices. There are BlueTooth versions available, which I have used in backcountry ski trips, which have no access to any cell network, or wifi

Thanks Bernad V. but I was hoping for a more automated way, and coding is an option, just not sure if the underlaying API and support this.

comment River flow downhill
Does this have to be completed in ArcGIS? If you are willing to use alternative GIS applications, you can look at free and open source solutions, such as QGIS and Grass. There are lots of examples of how to do this online, and in this forum.

comment Is cost of new LiDAR data reasonable for deliverables provided (in Canada)?
I worked at a company in the US that flew orthos and LiDAR. I wouldn't say the is a bad quote or a good quote. Will the company perform any classification. I am sure they may for the production of the DEM, but it may be useful to get the classification results as well. What is the X,Y,Z accuracy?

comment Word cloud labels in QGIS from database
@mapBaker I used a collection of software to make that. The schema/table relationship was made with Navicat Data Modeler. The map graphic was made with QGIS, and the text and "put-togetherness" was finalized in Inkscape. I would be great if there was a method, or better a tool to do all of this in QGIS.
