QGIS server 3.28 is officially OGC compliant

QGIS Server provides numerous services like WMS, WFS, WCS, WMTS and OGC API for Features. These last years, a lot of efforts were made to offer a robust implementation of the WMS 1.3.0 specification.

We are pleased to announce that QGIS Server LTR 3.28 is now certified against WMS 1.3.0.

This formal OGC certification process is performed once a year, specifically for the Long Term Release versions. But, as every change in QGIS source code is now tested against the formal OGC test suites (using OGC TeamEngine) to avoid any kind of regressions, you can always check any revision of the code against OGC failures in our Github continuous integration results.

All this has been possible thanks to the QGIS’s sustaining members and contributors.

QGIS Contributor meeting at BIDS ‘23 Vienna

We are happy to announce that OSGeo kindly extended an invitation to have a QGIS contributor meeting joining the OSGeo Community Sprint 2023 during the Big Data from Space 2023 conference in Vienna.

The 26th QGIS Contributor Meeting will be held from Monday, November 6th to Thursday, 11th.

For more details and to sign up, please visit the corresponding OSGeo announcement page.

About QGIS contributor meetings

QGIS Contributors Meetings are volunteer-driven events where contributors to the QGIS project from around the world get together in a common space – usually a university campus. During these events, contributors to the QGIS project take the opportunity to plan their work, hold face-to-face discussions and present new improvements to the QGIS project that they have been working on. Everybody attending the event donates their time to the project for the days of the event. As a project that is built primarily through online collaboration, these meetings provide a crucial ingredient to the future development of the QGIS project. The event is planned largely as an ‘unconference’ with minimal structured programme planning. We do this to allow attendees the freedom to meet dynamically with those they encounter at the event. Those sessions that are planned are advertised on the event web page, and we try to enable remote participation through video conferencing software. Although our hosts are not funded and donate the working space to us, we show our appreciation by making one of our software release’s splash screens in honour of that host, which is a great way to gain exposure of your institution and country to the hundreds of thousands of users that make use of QGIS.

About OSGeo

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has a long tradition of organizing code sprints for developers of Free and Open Source GIS software.

Since 2009, the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has been organizing a yearly Code Sprint of the “C Tribe” OSGeo projects, which has evolved into a full OSGeo Community Sprint and all “Tribes” are included/welcome. Leading developers of projects like GDAL, PostGIS,
MapServer, GeoServer, GRASS, QGIS, PDAL, pygeoapi and many more get together to discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial problems and have fun.

The OSGeo Community Sprint is open to all who wish to participate in one or more projects. There is always plenty to do – it’s not all about programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, testing – all this is also important for projects so everyone is cordially invited to attend the code sprint!

About BiDS

BiDS brings together key actors from industry, academia, EU entities and government to reveal user needs, exchange ideas and showcase the latest technical solutions and applications touching all aspects of space and big data technologies, providing a unique opportunity to discuss and present the most recent innovations and challenges encountered in the context of big data from space. The 2023 edition of BiDS will focus not only on technologies enabling insight and foresight inferable from big data from space. Together, we want to emphasize how breakthrough space data-driven technologies impact society’s grand challenges, such as climate change and the green transition.

The event, organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) together with the European Union Satellite Center (SatCen) and the Joint Research Center (JRC), will take place at the Austria center Vienna, and counts on the support of the partners FFG, Austria in Space and the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria.

QGIS Grant Programme 2023 Results

We are extremely pleased to announce the 4 winning proposals for our 2023 QGIS.ORG grant programme:

Funding for the programme was sourced by you, our project donors and sponsorsNote: For more context surrounding our grant programme, please see: QGIS Grants #8: Call for Grant Proposals 2023.

The QGIS.ORG Grant Programme aims to support work from our community that would typically not be funded by client/contractor agreements. This means that we did not accept proposals for the development of new features. Instead proposals focus on infrastructure improvements and polishing of existing features.

Voting to select the successful projects was carried out by our QGIS Voting Members. Each voting member was allowed to select up to 6 proposals. The full list of votes are available here (on the first sheet). The following sheets contain the calculations used to determine the winner (for full transparency). The table below summarizes the voting tallies for the proposals:

A couple of extra notes about the voting process:

  • Voting was carried out based on the technical merits of the proposals and the competency of the applicants to execute on these proposals.
  • No restrictions were in place in terms of how many proposals could be submitted per person / organization, or how many proposals could be awarded to each proposing person / organization.
  • Voting was ‘blind’ (voters could not see the existing votes that had been placed).

We received 35 votes from 20 community representatives and 15 user group representatives.

On behalf of the QGIS.ORG project, I would like to thank everyone who submitted proposals for this call!

Reporting Back From the User Conference & Contributor Meeting in Den Bosch

Last week, we had our 25th Contributor Meeting in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. Prior to the meeting, the International QGIS User Conference, brought together 200 participants from all around the world who came to learn about QGIS and exchange ideas and best practices.

The conference programme was jam-packed with great content. Over 50 presentations were given during the conference, with the participants enjoying the Dutch atmosphere whilst building up their knowledge of QGIS and sharing their ideas. With more than 20 years of development behind us, QGIS has become a stable platform that supports geospatial decision making, analysis and decision making in all sorts of endeavours. We saw lots of talks that demonstrated this maturity, for example a presentation John Holden and Blake Esselsteyn showed how QGIS is being used to determine voting districts to support the democratic process, Angelina Savchuk showed how QGIS is being used to support the work of the Red Cross, whilst Nick Vervaal showed us how QGIS is used to make high tech artistic laser cut maps from wood.

We were honoured to be joined by Lucho Ferrer who came all the way from Peru! Ujaval Gandhi travelled all the way from India and wowed the audience with his workshop on QGIS Actions.

There are two mobile offerings for QGIS users who want to take their work out to the field. Both QField and MerginMaps had a strong presence at the User Conference, causing a lot of excitement and buzz in the audience.

Contributor Meeting

As is traditional, the contributor meeting (which was held directly after the two day user conference) was full of workshops, sessions, and spontaneous get-togethers to facilitate the exchange between community members, including sessions on:

  • Onboarding Day
  • Plans for the certification programme
  • Getting around in the QGIS community
  • Translating QGIS 
  • Documentation system and process
  • Editing the documentation online on GitHub
  • Building documentation on your local machine and using Git to make a pull request (submission)
  • Compiling QGIS
  • Making your first pull request to QGIS
  • Create QGIS issues and feature requests
  • QGIS vision
  • QGIS website update
Everyone worked hard to advance the project, the open plan space facilitating lots of ad hoc conversations which are hard to match in an online environment.
OGC API in QGIS: current support and proposed developments, hosted by Joana Simoes

From the QGIS community we would like to extend a huge ‘thank you!’ to the local organising team who hosted a flawless event and worked so hard to make sure everyone had the best experience possible. Thank you and see you next year!

QGIS Grants #8: Call for Grant Proposals 2023

Dear QGIS Community,

We are very pleased to announce that this year’s round of grants is now available. The call is open to anybody who wants to make a contribution to QGIS funded by our grant fund, subject to the call conditions outlined in the application form.

The deadline for this round is in four weeks, on 2nd May 2023.

There are no new procedures in 2023. Please note the following guidelines established in previous years: 

  • The proposal must be submitted as a ‘QEP’ (QGIS Enhancement Proposal) issue in the repo: (tagged as Grant-YEAR). Following this approach will allow people to ask questions and provide public feedback on individual proposals.
  • Proposals must clearly define the expected final result so that we can properly assess if the goal of the proposal has been reached.
  • The project budgets should account for PR reviewing expenses to ensure timely handling of the project-related PRs and avoid delays caused by relying on reviewer volunteer time. 
  • In the week after the QEP discussion period, the proposal authors are expected to write a short summary of the discussion that is suitable for use as a basis on which voting members make their decisions. 

The PSC of QGIS.ORG will examine the proposals and has veto power in case a proposal does not follow guidelines or is not in line with project priorities.

For more details, please read the introduction provided in the application form.

We look forward to seeing all your great ideas for improving QGIS!
