    BeSpatial YPN presents -  Open Source GIS with Cliff Patterson - December 7, 12:00pm

    BeSpatial’s Young Professional Network's Open Source GIS with Cliff Patterson.

    Multiuser editing is a fundamental requirement for an enterprise GIS environment and it is easily achievable with an open source GIS stack. In its simplest form, multiuser editing includes the ability to define various users or groups within an organization as either readers, editors, or administrators. In short, it is a way to control how data are accessed and maintained. In addition, it is often equally important to track changes through audit tables, save default symbology, save projects centrally within the database, and create relationships between different datasets to help ensure data integrity. Combining QGIS and PostGIS gives GIS administrators the ability to configure a robust, scalable multiuser environment that includes all of these capabilities. This webinar will explain how LunaGeo sets up cloud-based, multiuser editing environments from initial database design to security and data auditing.
