comment Is there a better way to convert Raster to Point data? Don't need one point for every cell
what about a raster calculation to remove cells you are not interested in. Alternatively, you could convert your rasters to polygons, and use the polygons as a means to select/delete points (ie: no data, or other land use).

comment Computing population exposure
Good point Joseph. I haven't used ArcGIS in some time, so I am unsure if that will be a requirement. There may be some work post conversion.

comment Shapefile created in QGIS will not display properly in ArcGIS
What issue are you seeing in ArcGIS. You need to provide more information, so the community knows what to look for.

comment Is it possible to use AcuGIS with QGIS?
As a side note, this company is terrible. Horrible customer service, very unprofessional. They are still billing me 9 months after I closed my account. Wanted everyone to know about them before you get yourself into a bad situation.

comment How to Generate Points on Corner of Polygon Only
What GIS application are you using? In QGIS you could look at using Vector - Simplify Geometries. ArcGIS will have a similar tool. It will remove vertices from a shapefile from within a tolerance, which is based on a distance.

comment How to Generate Points on Corner of Polygon Only
Why do you have so many vertices for rectangles? If you were to remove all the non essential vertices (ie: the ones between corners) you would be able to get what you want. Having all those vertices is not a good thing to have in your polygons.

comment Soils sampling. How to make polygons from interpolated points?
You could add a new column to your polygon and do a reclassification based on your needs

Can you comment more on what you mean, or what you would like to have as an outcome.

comment Calculating vector area in QGIS
When you make your new column, what type do you set it as? (ie: text, integer, double, etc.). This will have a great impact on the calculation, as it can not be calculated on some data types. The default is text, which wouldn't work.

Is the field a double?

comment Calculating vector area in QGIS
what projection is the data in? Have you created a new column to calculate the area? The column you add should be a decimal with at least levels of precision (ie: two decimal places).

comment Spatial join 2 polylines without common attribute
What are you hoping to get as a result? It is unclear in your question. If you have two layers, and you are looking for lines from both layers to be selected from within an area, then @Surya is correct, you will want to use select by location. But your question isn't clear as to what you have or what you want to do.

comment Road traffic database sample?
What part of the world do you want data from? My understanding is that most of this type of data is for purchase, not free download.

comment Burning road network into DEM?
@taggatmot a 10m DEM will not allow for single lane roads. Just keep that in mind when you are doing your "burning"

comment Burning road network into DEM?
With this process you will want to consider road width, as roads will vary according to the number of lanes. Unless you have a high resolution DEM, "burning" roads into a DEM could create more issues that its worth. What resolution DEM do have access to?

comment How to scale SVG symbol based on zoom level in QGIS?
I am not sure about the data driven size. I thought degrees would be the only other option, unfortunately those projections are not visually pleasing.

comment How to scale SVG symbol based on zoom level in QGIS?
Thank you @Underdark. This does what I want, however, I am working at a scale for North America, and there are sizing limits in QGIS. You can only use up to 5 digits, so the largest value I can use is 99999 map units, which is much too small for displaying a word cloud at a continent scale using the EPSG code of 3978. I suppose I may need to choose a different projection. Can you suggest another option?

comment Cover a polygon with fixed size squares
The beauty of open source is that you can look at the underlaying code, and use it and/or modify it. You should download the plugin and look at the code, there you will see the algorithm you are looking for. Not all answers here are exact or definite, you as the user need to be critical and know what is being provided to you.
