Awesome QGIS Tutorial

Here’s a great QGIS Tutorial put together by Frank Donnelly at City University of New York.  It covers QGIS 1.8, and not only teaches the software but teaches basic GIS concepts as well.  It is a great way to introduce someone to the world of GIS.

QGIS 1.8.0 in AUR

The PKGBUILD QGIS 1.8.0 is now in AUR.  The packager also put together a PKGBUILD for libspatialindex, calling it spatialindex so that QGIS wouldn’t have to go to a git repository to build a dependency.

This is great and all but hopefully QGIS makes it back into the official repositories, having the PKGBUILD out there is nice but QGIS takes FOREVER to compile from source.
