QGIS

Description

QGIS is a general GIS desktop software for viewing, modifying, analyzing and visualizing spatial data. Supports a very wide range of vector and raster formats, also WMS, WMTS, WCS and WFS. QGIS can connect to PostGIS, Oracle, SpatiaLite and MSSql. There are a lot plug-ins, for extended functionality. It is possible to use functionality of GRASS, SAGA and R via QGIS user interface..

In Taito it could be used for visualizing computing results locally.

  • Includes grass, taudem and open source lastools processing tools.
  • Supports parallel rendering of layers, so feels more responsive when using multiple or large layers.


Available

Version on CSC's Servers

Taito: 2.18.11


Usage

If you want to use QGIS GUI, you should connect to taito-shell using -X connection or NoMachine for Windows users.

There are two options for opening QGIS in Taito-shell:

1) You can open QGIS from NoMachine's Fluxbox menu (right-click to open): Applications -> Taito-shell -> GIS -> QGIS. This loads in the background the same modules as option 2.

2) Load appropriate modules

module load geo-env wxwidgets saga/2.3.1

You can skip saga (+ wxwidgets) modules, if you do not use SAGA processing tools.

Start QGIS GUI:

qgis

Using SAGA processing toolbox

Qgis processing toolbox supports only saga 2.3.x versions so you must have wxwidgets and saga/2.3.1 modules loaded if you want to use Saga through qgis.
