* Capstone Project


Projek Capstone

Kepada mereka yang tak biasa dengan GIS dan kemungkinan besar, akibat pendedahan dari jenama  generic "ArcGIS" yang merangkumi versi desktop dan server (kecuali diberitahu) dan dari glamour web GIS dimana ramai keliru antara apa itu 'web GIS'? dan apa itu 'web mapping'?, saya rasa orang seperti ini akan menjangka QGIS, seperti ArcGIS, bukan hanya GIS desktop tetapi juga GIS server akan tetapi apabila mereka sedar ini bukannya, akan cepat memandang rendah terhadap QGIS untuk menutup kecetikan ilmunya. (You-know-it, I-know-it, we-all-know-it but we-make-don't-know-it) Rujukan paling baik yang suka saya membaca berkali-kali untuk membentukkan data GIS desktop supaya jadi web-mapable adalah projek Capstone oleh M. Ballenger. Saya tabik Madam ini atas sumbangannya, tambahan pula, beliau menggunakan perisian sumber terbuka khasnya QGIS (yang saya biasa), uDig, GeoServer and Notepad++ (yang saya tak biasa tapi sokong sepenuhnya). Oleh itu, kalau ingin tahu lebih mengenai kertasnya, klik disini.

Capstone Project

To those unfamiliar with GIS and probably because of exposure from the generic name "ArcGIS"  which conveniently covers a desktop and server version (unless told) and because of the glamour of web GIS which many people get confuse between what is 'web GIS'? and what is 'web mapping'?, I find that such people think QGIS, like ArcGIS, is not only a desktop GIS but also a server GIS and when they realize this is not the case, they quickly look down on QGIS as inferior just to cover their ignorance. (You-know-it, I-know-it, we-all-know-it but we-make-don't-know-it) To me, the best reference material which I like to read on and on about making desktop GIS data web-mapable is the Capstone Project by M. Ballenger. I take my hat off to her for her contribution, furthermore, she uses Open Source material in particular QGIS (which I am familiar with), uDig, GeoServer and Notepad++ (which I wholly support but have never used before). So, if you are interested in her paper, click here.
