eVis Event Browser: Ciri QGIS yang tidak diwar-warkan

Saya berpendapat eVis adalah satu alat QGIS yang berguna tapi tidak dioptimakan. Ianya amat berpotensi dalam menyediakan maklumat jelas kerana mempautkan imej atau klip video pada fitur GIS tambah pula manusia memikir dengan imej bukan teks. Bagaiamana, orang biasanya mementingkan GIS untuk kegunaan pemetaan atau analis spatial. Agensi pelancongan dan perniagaan kalau mereka nampak potensi ini pasti dapat menambhkan rezeki masing-masing tapi saya ni siapa? maka cuma  berkongsi ni dengan sesiapa yang sudi melawat blog ini. pengguna cuma perlu 'mengajar' perisian  QGIS dimana foto disimpan, dimana aplikasi yang mempaparkan foto berada dan foto mana pergi ke fiitur mana. Apabila semua itu dah siap, pilih saja eVis ID tool dan klik fiur tertentu dan foto/klip video berkenaan akan keluar (Dinasihat klip video tidak melebihi tempoa masa 20 saat/klip kalau tidak akan lambat untuk dimuat turun klip tersebut dan orang cepat bosan). 

eVis Event Browser: Unsung QGIS feature

I feel the eVis is such a powerful QGIS tool though not optimized to the hilt. I can see it has such enormous potentials at providing information clearly because it associates an image or video clip to a GIS feature and it is a fact that people think with images not text. However, people are generally so obsessed that GIS is either mapping or spatial analysis that they fail to see this, big guns included. Tourist and business agencies, if they only knew how to exploit it, I believe they could increase their profit margin dramatically but who am I but Mr. Nobody so I share it will only those who are interested in visiting my humble blog. The user merely needs to 'teach' the QGIS software where the photos are stored, where the application that actives the photo or video clip resides and which photo/video goes to which feature. When all that has been done, just use the eVis ID tool and select the appropriate feature and the photo/video clip pops out (It is advised that any video clip should never exceed 20 seconds/clip or else it will take too long to download and people will get bored).
