comment How to set the cell size of a tiff to 1 meter when working in a Geographic Coordinate System?
@usertwoseventwothreenine are you sure the 'resample' tool will do what you propose? If your data is in WGS84 I don't think its going to project the data into metres... I think the tool outputs data in the coordinate system of the inputs, and doesn't change anything except the cell size in the native (input) coordinate system.

comment How to set the cell size of a tiff to 1 meter when working in a Geographic Coordinate System?
@Charly You're doing the same thing - only 1 is by even ESRI standards a bad approach: projecting on the fly. The data frame re-projection that ArcMap uses is for display only, not data processing. If you want a raster with a cell size of 1m, you have to re-project the data to a metre-based coordinate system.

comment Combine two grids with a small area of overlapping pixels to a new raster in QGIS/SAGA
I was kidding since you put "Hint"... anyway, a transition is not something you can automate as far as I know. Combining using QGIS > Raster > Miscellaneous > Merge doesn't contain an option for a 'blend' mode...hmmm...

comment Word cloud labels in QGIS from database
@RyanGarnett do you know of a good open source postgresql database modeler? QGIS would companion well with a system like that... pgModeler is no longer free, but it is awesome!

comment How to migrate spatial tables from MSSQL to Postgis
I would think scripting with OGR2OGR/GDAL would handle this without the extra conversion to SHP...

comment Cut polyline in Qgis 2.4
It's not a plugin, its a core toolbar / function... that screenshot is from QGIS 2.4. Can you find the toolbar? Right-click on the grey area near the existing toolbars and you'll see a list...choose 'advanced digitizing'
