Here you can find a series of building footprint maps of 10 different Flemish cities. Can you guess which map is which Flemish city? The solutions are on page 2 of this quiz.Continue reading “Quiz: Recognize 10 Flemish cities based on their building footprint map”
I created a QGIS style that will draw a curved line between a point and the closest other point in that same layer. This way you can visualize nearest neighbours and also see clusters of points.Continue reading “Visualize nearest neighbours with Geometry Generator in QGIS”
After I posted a link to a previous article about making Building Footprint Posters in QGIS on LinkedIn , I got a question about how to make these kind of Building Footprint Posters based on building heights. In Flanders we’re lucky enough to not have to create this kind of data ourselfs based on DTM and DSM map layers. The Agentschap Informatie Vlaanderen distributes the 3D GRB (a 3D base map of Flanders), that has that information per building.Continue reading “Building Footprint Posters based on a 3D map”
I released version 1.4 of my QGIS plugin ZoomToBelgium. In this latest version you now can also zoom to the administrative limits of the country, the regions and communities of Belgium.
I created a new style to use on a point layer in QGIS. This style is holiday themed, but it’s actually all about adding randomized styling to your layer. The stars are located on the points of your layer, but they change color anytime you interact with the map (zoom, move, select,…). At the same time christmas trees are added to the map at random locations inside the bounding box of your points layer. Everytime you interact with the map the trees change location. For each point in your layer, 3 trees are shown on the map.
