comment Google Maps OpenLayer plugin not zooming in or panning
When you say it worked, do you mean that you were able to add a Google map, and zoom in/out, and the Google basemap would zoom correctly with the other layers?

comment Google Maps OpenLayer plugin not zooming in or panning
I don't have enough rep to post an answer, but this is a known bug, tracked at hub.qgis.org/issues/11728 Maybe leaving a comment there, or "watching" the issue, will help raise its priority for fixing.

comment File Geodatabase (*.gdb) support in QGIS?
Thank you for posting this ... it's much shorter than the other answer (which I also appreciate, but if it's no longer necessary to go through all those steps, I'm grateful to know it!)

comment Where has the cartogram plugin for QGIS gone?
See this issue for status of the aforementioned brokenness: github.com/cfarmer/cartogram/issues/9 The author said he doesn't have time to fix it.

comment Where has the cartogram plugin for QGIS gone?
FYI, when I try to load this plugin in QGIS 2.4 Chugiak, it says "This plugin is broken: invalid syntax". This happens in both the CristianCantoro fork linked above, and in the cfarmer version that it forked from (which appears to be more up to date).

comment Getting StatPlanet to work with custom shapefile and data?
I tried this suggestion, and it still doesn't throw any errors or other messages. It doesn't seem to be connected to a console at all. I guess I could continue pursuing the avenue of doing the whole process on a Windows machine. But since I'm doing this for a client who uses a Mac, it's a bit pointless.

comment Getting StatPlanet to work with custom shapefile and data?
Regarding output of error messages, I can't run update_map.bat or StatPlanet.exe on a Mac. I've done the equivalent of update_map.bat (copying the right files) and run the StatPlanet Mac app, and I get no error messages.

comment Getting StatPlanet to work with custom shapefile and data?
Thanks for making an effort. However I'm confused by a couple of things. (1) The error shown in your first picture is a Flash error. Yet you describe it as appearing when you run update_map.bat. (2) I think you're saying that update_map.bat must be run; it's not enough to just copy the map.shp and map.dbf file to the right folder. Yet looking at the commands in update_map.bat shows that it does nothing other than renaming the old map.shp/dbf out of the way, and copying others to map.shp/dbf. (Moreover, I'm on a Mac so running a .bat file isn't an option.)

comment Getting StatPlanet to work with custom shapefile and data?
@nishadhka: Thanks for your input. Yes the settings.csv and data.csv are normally generated by the Excel file, but the documentation describes how to produce them manually, for cases where Excel macros can't be run (e.g. certain versions of MS Office for Mac, or lack of MS Office). I have tried going through the process both manually, and using the Excel macros file. It "would be easy," but it isn't working. Regarding shx, can you provide a citation for the assertion that shp without shx is unusable? My understanding is that the .shx is an index, which is optional and helps with performance.

comment Should I use OpenLayers or Leaflet?
Interesting. I would have expected Leaflet to be lighter and smoother on a mobile device. Thanks for sharing this experience.

comment What's the difference between EPSG:4326 and EPSG:900913?
I think this is the best answer, as it puts the most critical difference front and center.

@Mark: I've tried it with and without the .shx. The documentation says that only the .shp and .dbf are needed.

comment How to use tiles in this strange tiling scheme?
@talsibony: interesting idea... I think you're saying, several layers, one for each tile size.
