Lessons from Successful Enterprise GIS Implementations with QGIS and PostGIS
06-29, 14:00–14:30 (Europe/Tirane), UBT C / N110 - Second Floor

In this talk, I'll share some practical tips and tricks for managing an enterprise GIS workflow with QGIS and PostGIS. I'll showcase some real-world examples to highlight the benefits of using a centralized spatial database to manage GIS data, and I'll walk through the steps to set up a QGIS project for creating, updating, and deleting data directly from QGIS.

My goal is to help organizations that are planning to set up a PostGIS-powered QGIS workflow and are looking for innovative ways to maximise the benefits of the joint powerhouse of QGIS and PostGIS.

As we dive deeper, I'll explore some of the key technical aspects of using QGIS and PostGIS for enterprise GIS. I'll share some tips for configuring and integrating the tools, and showcase how to set up an easily accessible end-user workflow for creating and editing data in QGIS using QGIS forms.

Throughout the talk, I'll also share some stories from different projects to illustrate how these tips and tricks have been successfully applied in practice. I will do my best to ensure that you’ll leave the talk with an understanding of the benefits of using QGIS and PostGIS as part of their Enterprise GIS workflows.

Whether you're a GIS professional, team leader / project manager or anyone seeking to optimize their GIS data management, this talk will provide valuable insights and practical advice for optimizing your GIS data management. Join me as we explore the power of open source tools for enterprise GIS!
