Compressed file formats in GIS

July 19, 2018

The use of zip programs or other archivers as part of a program becomes very common. Like for example in the creation of a Map Package in ArcGIS as a MPK format, it is a 7z compressed format.
Where if in an emergency situation we rename the MPK to 7z and extract it ..


Or in the latest QGIS version 3.2 for project files that end in QGZ is also a compressed format, where we rename / copy the file that replaces with ZIP suffix, and we can get the file with the old format that is not compressed.

Creating Static WebGis

June 19, 2018

Creating a static webgis application is now getting easier and not paid, that is for the GIS user whch using QGIS application, there is plugin called qgis2web

The step is by setting up her map content; setup settings qgis2web plugin application; prepare its website site, and webgis ready made and used.
In the past, apps like this one running as arcview 3.3 extensions should be purchased for use,

trying to access app-1 –

In the plugin there is Option making with it by use of leaflet technology
with this you can set layer switching feature, and in this example created a hyperlink action to displays the image linked
Display-3, along with the replacement of a more cartographically impressed basemap (open topo map)

The following exploration is to try to use the cloud platform they provide qgiscloud – (free with 50 mb), upload data and project is through an intermediary plugin provided ..
can be viewed / accessed at the following address:

In this web cloud view the hyperlink will not (not) active, due to changes in the hosting location, which is translated in the data content.

This cloud and QGis feature I think is a breakthrough that makes it easy for users.

Zhiyun Smooth Q – Xiaomi Action Cam

December 24, 2017

Use zhiyun smooth q stabilizer for xiaomi action camera.
In video creation, often the shooting stability factor becomes an important factor in order for the video to be comfortable to see, or unaffected by the vibrational effect of being taken in a moving (in-vehicle or walking).

The effort is often done by using a camera that has electronic stabilization feature (EIS – Electonic Image Stabilization), in this example i use xiaomi yi lite action cam.
Obtained is not maximal stabilization, slant movement (flat axis stabilization) in bringing the camera still can not be anticipated, or still limited to reduce the rough-grain effect of the camera, which is automatic anticipated electronically.


Stabilizer zhiyun smooth q, is designed specialized for smart phone only, after several attempts to use / utilize with how to modify the load balance finally stabilizer can be forced to use with good results. ( without additional load balancer difficult to work well )


balance with load, zhiyun off


balance with load, zhiyun on ( ready to shoot )
