I'm a n00b developer in the GIS arena, developing a desktop application that will have a window to display map data, along with other windows to perform operations over the data. I also would like to display a layer with Google Maps tiles, were overlay data will be displayed.
I understand that there are two major options to build this application if one is to use QGIS for the cartography part:
- Qt + QGIS
- PyQGIS + QGIS
Can anybody give guidance for the reasons to choose one options over the other one? Some topics I'm interested to consider are:
- Differences in performance;
- Code maintainability and extendability.
