I made a simple QGIS plugin that shows the QGIS python variable qgis.utils.plugin_times in an easy to understand window. It will show the QGIS user which of their plugins slows down QGIS startup. If you’re a plugin developer you can compare your plugin’s speed with other plugins, so you can try to optimize your code. The plugin is available on the Official QGIS Plugin Repository as experimental plugin. You can download it from within QGIS if you check the “Show also experimental plugins” option in Plugins | Settings. If you would like to check out the source code, it’s available on Github.

All these black 2016 images are situated around the Noorderlaan-Ijzerlaan part of the city.

The image above shows the world projected in the Belgian Lambert 1972 projection (EPSG:31370). This is the most used projection in Belgium, but of course it’s not suitable for a global map.

I released a script on Google Streetview to check from what years Google has the most recent Streetview images for Kontich, Belgium. Here’s the result. Previously I did the same for Edegem, Belgium and Antwerp, Belgium.
