I’m glad to share with you my first publication of a chapter with Pauline Perbet.

According to Nicolas Bagdhadi who edited with Clément Mallet and Mehrez Zribi theses new series of books  “QGIS in remote sensing”, these 4 volumes “aim to facilitate the appropriation and operational use of the Quantum Geographic Information System (QGIS) software in the field of remote sensing”.

HTML and CSS lego icons have a new friend : Javascript !

I was building my new courses in web development for Master SIGMA when I found some really nice illustrations explaining the role of HTML and CSS. But something was missing : Javascript ! I don’t manage to find the original author of these lego icons, but if you do, please comment.

Now, here’s the javascript animated lego icon :

Feel free to use it 🙂 If you need to mention someone : Nicolas Karasiak.

Get ROI values from raster and combine all CSV (remote sensing statistics with R)

EDIT in 2018 : More than two years later after this post, I just discover it back and realize how crazy I was to use R for Remote Sensing and for extracting ROI. I really suggest you to use Python or Orfeo Tool Box (Sample Extraction) to do this thing, and really not R !

R is a great tool for statistics, even if it may be slow in calculing raster’stats, it is really a good way for batching all of your work and presenting your data using MarkDown language. This example is one of my first autonomous script in R, and it is very exciting for further. You can download the whole script SPOT5-GetROIvalues.R on GitHub.

Before showing you the different steps of the code, I need to present you the way I structured my data, because the script is going to parse them and to compile all tables in one file.

dzetsaka : how to make your first classification in Qgis ?

I just published the plugin dzetsaka : classification tool (github/qgis) on Qgis plugin server. This is a very simple plugin to make a fast but powerful classification. I used it for making numerous classifications of SPOT 5 scenes in the French Guiana Amazon forest.

A project with samples (an old map (map.tif) and ROI (train.shp)) is available on the docs branch. You can download these files directly here.

How to get rid of “unknown enum QgsMapLayerProxyModel::PluginLayer” in Qgis ?

I was developping a plugin in Qgis with the Combobox layer (QgsMapLayerComboBox) which allows you to show all opened layer in Qgis. It’s a great tool that allows the user to select a raster or a vector easily.
On Ubuntu everything works perfectly, but when I was trying on Windows I always had this error when loading the plugin “error enum : QgsMapLayer”. Read More

Making a modern map with an old style

A project with my teacher Laurent Jégou was to design a recent map with an old map style. Some students chose to make the opposite, making an old map looks like a recent one (for example Rome in 300 A.D with an Open Street Map style).
I took the first project and I worked to make an actual map of Toulouse with an old style. I got most of my inspiration with the Rome map available on geotests (16mo).
