Map done entirely in QGIS with Print Composer.  I'm currently working on a QGIS plugin to create Indexed Grids (now available, called 'Create Indexed Vector Grid'). This is similar to the existing Vector Grids function, except that each square is also labelled with a spreadsheet-style coordinate like A1, F3 etc. It also creates label cells along the top and down the side (here these have a dark blue background). You could also do this cell naming manually, the following technique would be…

I developed this general reference map in QGIS 2.8 "Wien" to highlight at a scale of 1:1,000,000 the relationship between Nepal's population density (source: 2015 WorldPop) and the extreme overall topography. I used the QGIS Terrain Analysis tool to create a hill shade from SRTM 90 imagery (source: CGIAR-CSI). At this scale it is possible to show administrative layers with labels down to the district level, along with main roads and the locations of airports across the country (sources…

tried to visualise what Scotland would look like if it was warped by drive times from Edinburgh.  The map is centered on Edinburgh city centre. Angles are preserved, but the distance from the centre is the drive time rather than geographic distance.  Used QGIS (pgRouting Layer plugin), PostgreSQL, PostGIS and pgRouting. Road network is OS Open Data, crown copyright and database rights 2015.  more details on my blog

A regional map of the Northeast Megalopolis in the United States. The Northeast Megalopolis traditionally includes the cities (and surrounding suburbs) of Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; Philadelphia, PA; New York, NY; Boston, MA and various other smaller metropolitan areas.  More information about the region: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BosWash and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northeast_megalopolis  Contains geographic data from the following sources: US Census Bureau: political divisions, urban areas…

I study commuting patterns in my work and love the flow mapping and rendering capabilities of QGIS for this. This was my most ambitious flow map project with QGIS - about 4 million individual rows of data. The map shown here was created within the Print Composer. If you're interested in the method and the data, I published a short working paper here: ajrae.staff.shef.ac.uk/img/us_lower_48_with_labels_and_te.... The map shows commuting connections (straight lines) between Census Tracts in…

Created Tanaka style elevation lines over my entire home province (took some time). This is a view of the province capital of Jönköping.

This visualisation was produced in QGIS 2.12.1, with a little help from postgres/postgis (could also be done in QGIS only).   Areas of each country's circle are in proportion to population.  How it was done  First of all, reprojected the Natural Earth data to epsg:3410 (a cylindrical equal area projection in meters). This is important; doing it in epsg:4326 makes countries appear bigger the further they are from the equator (areal distortion). Because degrees.  Next, used postgis to find…

Ok - one final attempt to produce an interesting and funky image using maps, data and some processing.  This is a bit of a cross between the lightning of the last effort and a spooky sort of affair - like those horrible creeping veins which seem to come over zombies in lots of zombie films... but on a map of Britain showing how the shortest trip between a selection of origins and Derby makes a nice flow-y map... but zombies! (oh, I dunno, I just like how it looks!)  Please see versions 1…

Same as Version 3 - but messed with in Photoshop to look a bit (a little bit) like lightning striking Derby. If I was more skilful I'd do that in QGIS - but that will have to come later.

Enhanced from V1.2 with rivers, lakes and roads.    Not that anybody has commented on the others (except Alan - many thanks Alan!), I think its OK to let it slip that its the Lake District (well, part of it).  QGis2threejs doesn't seem to like it when I zoom out to the area as a whole.  Oh well, I'll just have to learn another way of doing it... #alwayslearning  Have to remember that the data is fairly lo-res, so there may be some errors.  The vector data (roads, lakes, rivers) is also from…

The outcome of a little experiment I've been working on trying to classify the names of all places recorded in the GeoLiteCity database (dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/).   Basically, I’ve extracted the first letter of a place’s name. For those with an accent (i.e. Á) I’ve grouped those with the approximate standard English letter (i.e. A) – which I appreciate doesn’t really capture the actual pronunciation too well… also for the Icelandic contingent out there, the þ has been…
