Ubuntu QGIS vs. Windows QGIS



Ubuntu QGIS vs. Windows QGIS

Saya mengakui adalah lebih mudah untuk memasang QGIS versi Microsoft kerana tidak perlu bergantung kepada Internet kecuali jika perlu muat turun plugin atau menggunapakai plugin Google layers. Pemasangan adalah mainan kanak-kanak, cuma klik next-next-next-next-next. Kedua-dua boleh dikatakan lebih kurang cepat tetapi saya masih belum menguji yang mana lebih elok kerana keutamaan saya adalah Ubuntu kerana kini dapat saya elak melakukan skan harian bagi anti-virus and malware, defrag dan scandisk. Juga, semua di keluarga saya bersetuju melayari Internet melalui Ubuntu-Chromium browser mau pun menghidup atau memadamkan komputer lebih cepat dengan Ubuntu. Saya perhatikan blog mengenai pengemaskinian ketahap QGIS 1.8 amat popular, oleh itu, telah mengemaskininya dan menghuraikan langkah-langkah bagi memasang QGIS versi Ubuntu. Barukini, semasa mengkaji integrasi antara spreadsheet dan fail .shp, saya perhatikan modul Join Attribute tidak berfungsi secara seamless antara LibreOffice's spreadsheet yang datang bersama Ubuntu 10.04 dan Ubuntu QGIS 1.7 bagaimana berfungsi antara Microsoft Office spreadsheet dan Windows QGIS 1.7. Perkara ni amat merunsingkan akan tetapi diatasi dalam versi terkini LibreOffice yang terdapat pada Ubuntu 11.10 bersama Ubuntu QGIS 1.8. Pasti, ada orang buat kerja tambahan!

Ubuntu QGIS vs. Windows QGIS

I admit it is easier to install the Microsoft version of QGIS because once the file has been downloaded, there is no need to be dependent on the Internet unless there is a need to upload the latest plugins or use the Google layers plugin. Installation is kid's stuff, just click next-next-next-next-next. Both seem to be reasonably fast but I have not bothered to test which is better since I have a preference for Ubuntu because I can now totally relieve myself of daily anti-virus and malware scanning, frequent defrags and scandisk. Also, everyone in the family acknowledges surfing the Internet with Ubuntu-Chromium browser and even switching the computer with Ubuntu on or off is faster.  I noticed that my blog on the update to QGIS 1.8 is very popular so I have updated it to elaborate the steps how I installed the Ubuntu version of QGIS. Recently, when I was researching on integrating a spreadsheet to a .shp file, I noticed that the Join Attribute module did not work seamlessly between the LibreOffice's spreadsheet that came along with Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu QGIS 1.7. but it did work between Microsoft Office's spreadsheet and Windows QGIS 1.7. That was most annoying however this issue was resolved in the updated version of LibreOffice in Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu QGIS 1.8. Obviously, somebody must have been doing their homework!
