I didn’t use Netflix for some month on my Nexus 7 tablet with Cyanogenmod 13 (Android 6). A few days ago I wanted to use the netflix app – and what a surprise: films only play with audio, no video. Maybe an update of the app ? Nothing was available and the best… it was not listed anymore in my PlayStore :-/
Some days ago I thought about using a Linux-Distribution from an USB-Stick, not a Live-System – instead installing a Distro on a Stick. USB 3.0 performs quite decent and USB-Sticks >= 32GB are quite cheap. But does installing a Linux-Distro from the Install-Live-Stick to an empty Stick really work (and boot) ?
Is the widely pushed OGC Geopackage (GPKG)(http://www.geopackage.org/) ready for daily use – also as a replacement for the good old Shapefile as an exchange-format ? While QGIS already supports Geopackage (including direct editing) quite well for some time, the format starts to grow up in the ESRI environment. Some good news with ArcGIS Pro 1.4 …
Sport watches like the Garmin Swim or Forerunner-series are widely used. As a Linux-User, I was facing the „problem“ how to get the data on the PC from my Garmin swim (and to GarminConnect) … there are a lot of solutions around on the internet (some very old ones) – the following workflow works fine for me to get the data on the PC and upload it to GarminConnect.
Fooling around with QGIS (v 2.18) global program-settings, I found some interesting setting. It allows the user to copy geo-features directly from the table to the clipboard as GeoJSON (geom + attributes). So, no „export to…“ etc. is needed.
Nachdem ArcGIS Pro von ESRI erwachsen wird und sukzessive vermehrt im GIS-Alltag zum Einsatz kommt, anbei ergänzend zur Serie zur Anwendung bestmöglicher Transformationsparameter zwischen dem österreichischen Bundesmeldenetz und WGS84/ETRS89 die Implementierung dieser in ArcGIS Pro (Stand Version 1.3.1).
