GIS Cloud Publisher for QGIS Released!


 
After extensive testing and listening to your ideas and needs, we are excited to present you with the GIS Cloud Publisher for QGIS! This QGIS plugin allows you to transfer maps from QGIS to GIS Cloud in a matter of minutes, preserving your symbology. You can also update all changes to your QGIS maps in any phase of your project, or you can choose to update only specific layers. We like to say it’s a single click solution for sharing maps and data from the most popular open-source desktop GIS with the rest of the world!
 
This is great news for all of you GIS professionals in need of a quick and affordable way to share ‘heavy’ maps and datasets with clients or make the data public. The idea is that what you see in desktop QGIS is instantly replicated on your GIS Cloud account. Once your maps and data are transferred to GIS Cloud, you can easily share them with your colleagues, the public via map link or embed them into a website.
 
The process of publishing QGIS data to GIS Cloud is seamless. For smaller maps, it takes a few seconds and for bigger ones a few minutes to complete the transfer. This can impact your workflow significantly. There’s no need to export the dataset from QGIS and then import it manually to GIS Cloud. The Publisher for QGIS in that way saves you from the menial part of your daily workflow.

 

Key Features:

 

  • Transfer your QGIS data (vectors, rasters, wms, wfs) and symbology
  • Points, lines, polygons, categories, and labels are supported completely
  • Upload the entire map, or just a few layers for a fast workflow
  • Update changes made to your map or specific layers
  • Upload the same map as a new version to GIS Cloud
  • Upload as a private or public map
  • Give a name to your map
  • Share public maps instantly with an URL link
  • Share private maps with colleagues inside GIS Cloud
  • You can also publish your QGIS analysis by first saving them as rasters
  • QGIS is connected to GIS Cloud over a secure SSL connection

 

The QGIS plugin is compatible with QGIS 3 and QGIS 2. Here you can find a step-by-step guide to walk you through the process and explain all the features in detail. We also invite you to join us at the live demo webinar on March 19, learn about possible workflows and share your insight!
