There’s a discussion thread on the QGIS LinkedIn Group page about Python tutorials and resources. There were a few good suggestions, so I thought I’d share these with others. It starts with a very common question from a GIS (or any software that supports scripting) user:
I’m a real ‘end-user’ of qgis and I want to improve my skills a little… I’ve found many python tutorials online but I don’t know which are any good. Can anyone point me to some good resources?
The responses were useful, but not exhaustive:
- The PyQGIS Programmer’s Guide: http://locatepress.com/ppg
- PyQGIS developer cookbook: http://www.qgis.org/en/docs/pyqgis_developer_cookbook/
- Geoprocessing with Python using FOSS GIS: http://www.gis.usu.edu/~chrisg/python/2009/
- 10 Resources to Learn Python Programming Language: http://codecondo.com/10-ways-to-learn-python/
Do you have another suggestion? Please sound off in the comments below!
[UPDATE]: I’ve added a link to resources for learning Python in general, very useful and comprehensive list. Check it out!
