Building Mapping Applications with QGIS Pdf Book Description:
QGIS is just one of the premiere open source Geographical Information Systems. While creating Python geospatial software can be hard, QGIS simplifies the procedure by combining the essential geoprocessing libraries using a complex user interface, all which may be directly controlled using Python code. Beginning with an introduction to QGIS and also how to use the built-in QGIS Python Console, we’ll teach you how you can write Python code which uses the geospatial capabilities of QGIS. Building on that, you will finally learn how to produce your own complex standalone mapping software built on top of QGIS.
You are going to find out how to use the Python Console as a window to the QGIS programming environment, then use that environment to make your own Python scripts and plugins to personalize QGIS. As your understanding of this PyQGIS library develops, you may use it in order to execute an assortment of real-world geospatial programming activities, culminating in the invention of your complex standalone software to load, analyze, and display geospatial data.
