QGIS 2.6 – Sneak Peak


The release of QGIS 2.6 is planned for October 24, but you don’t have to wait to test new functions in development. In this post I’ll look closer on two new features that in my mind will make GIS life easier, even if some improvements should be made with the first of the new features described here. Independent Grid (Print Composer) To me, this is proof that you can change things by reporting bugs and […]

D3.js mapping tutorial 1: set up an initial webmap


This is the first tutorial for setting up an initial webmap with D3.js-JavaScript library by Mike Bostock. I see two great advantages in mapping with D3.js. The first is its picture based map output as svg (or canvas), which doesn’t need an additional map-framework á la leaflet.

Today’s monkey puzzle trees are a common (and not entirely unreasonable) trope in Mesozoic reconstructions. Photo by Scott Zona, CC-BY. Of course, this only […]

Writing and Publishing


I’ve spent a good bit of time this past month preparing the Punk Archaeology volume for publication (hopefully within the next week or so) and laying out the volume dedicated to a series of short posts from last year’s 3D Thursday series of blog posts. At the same time, I was thinking about this year’s series of posts on craft and archaeology, and it occurred to me that the process of managing a book from […]
