UK postcodes are broken down/divided into 4 levels: Areas, Districts, Sectors, and Units.
For G12 8QH the breakdown is:
Area – G
District – G12
Sector – G12 8
Unit – G12 8QH
I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and have been setting up my GIS workspace settings.
Setting up your Windows path environmental variables can easily be done through the command line.
These commands can be run directly in the command line and don’t require a computer restart to take effect. To run the command prompt, simply open up the windows search (Windows Key + S) and search for “cmd”:
Then run the command to add the path.
For a 64bit OSGeo4W install:
setx PATH “%PATH%;C:\OSGeo4W64\bin”
setx GDAL_PATH “C:\OSGeo4W64\share\gdal”
For a 32bit OSGeo4W install:
setx PATH “%PATH%;C:\OSGeo4W\bin”
setx GDAL_PATH “C:\OSGeo4W\share\gdal”
Restart your command prompt.
‘org2ogr’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Does it matter, and who cares?
Multi-ring buffers can be useful for simple distance calculations as seen in:
X Percent of the Population of Scotland Lives Within Y Miles of Glasgow
X Percent of the Population of Scotland Lives Within Y Miles of Edinburgh
For these I simply created multiple buffers using the QGIS buffer tool. This works for small samples, but was quite frustrating. I had initially hoped to do the whole analysis in SQLite, which worked pretty well initally, but struggled on the larger buffers. It took too long to run the queries, and did not allow for visualisation. I think using PostGIS would however be pretty feasible.
But creating a multi-ring buffer plugin for QGIS also seemed like a good learning experience. Which got me thinking, does it matter if you create increasingly large buffers around the original feature, or if you buffered the resulting buffer sequentially. My hypothesis was that there would be pretty significant differences due to the rounding of corners.
I asked on StackExchange but the conversation did not really take off:
My question is not about the overlapping-ness of the buffers, since I think multi-ring buffers should be “doughnuts” anyway. But rather if smoothing will occur. The only answer was to try it myself.
Buffer the resulting buffer sequentially: Sequential
Buffer the original feature with increasing buffer distance: Central
No matter how you do it the sequential style is quicker, but that may be down to my code.
Interestingly, although understandably, the sequential style results in a lot more vertices in the outer rings. For comparison, for a 500 ring buffer the outermost ring had the following vertice counts:
We can also see a smoother profile in the sequential buffer. However the difference is not major, and hard to discern with the naked eye.
So we have at most about around a 10m discrepancy, with 500 50m rings, so around 25000m of distance from the original feature.
This impacts rendering time dramatically, an example with our 500 rings:
So quicker to create but slower to draw. So which one is better, quicker calculation, or quicker rendering? Or should we not do 200+ ring buffers?
Hard to say. In version 0.2 of the Multi Ring Buffer Plugin. There is an option for either in the advanced tab.

In 1774 large science was taking place in the heart of Scotland. Two men were about to weigh the earth. This was done using plumblines and measuring how much the hill in Perthshire, called Schiehallion, displaced them. Schiehallion was chosen for its uniform appearance and relative accessibility.
The two people responsible for the experiment were the astronomer Nevil Maskelyne and the surveyor Charles Hutton. Charles Hutton, in order to make calculations of the volume of the mountain, pioneered the use of contour lines. These were essential in joining up measurement points to create a continual observation. Maskelyne set up a cabin on each side of the mountain where he could live and take astronomical observations and plumbline readings. The hut on the north side of the mountain famously burned down during the whisky fuelled celebrations of completing the observations, taking with it a local boys precious fiddle. Upon returning to London Maskelyne compensated the boys loss by sending him a replacement fiddle, a Stradivarius.
My goal for the trip was to find the remains of Maskelyne’s ruined observatory, which according to some reports could still be found on the northern slopes of the mountain. The quest was inspired by Simon Ingram. Whose account of climbing Schiehallion in Between the Sunset and the Sea is definitely worth a read. I used the notes found in that book to narrow the search area.

I set off, driving past Dull (Paired with Boring, Oregon), which was not a sign of how the day would turn out.
The first views of Schiehallion do not show the characteristic conical shape, rather show a gradual slope.
However the uniformity can be seen in the Ordnance Survey One-inch to the mile, Popular edition, Scotland, 1920-1930.
At the head of the car park there is a memorial to the observation work that took place on the hill.
Schiehallion from the car park (parking is £2, and only coins are accepted), with a suggestion of nice weather ahead.
Unfortunately the weather in Scotland is never predictable. With hail one minute.
And sunshine the next.
View from the top of Schiehallion. My goal was to attain the summit, and on the way down break off from the path and head downslope.
The remains of the Ordnance Survey trig point at the top of Schiehallion.
The view of the northern slope, so the observatory remains would be somewhere down there. There were a couple of promising piles of rocks that could be seen from up high, but upon closer inspection turned out to be… piles of rocks.
View back up to the ridge.
Northern slope. The terrain was not difficult, but the weather was not ideal.
I was just about the give up the search, but after climbing one final rise I saw a suspiciously uniform pile of rocks.
The remains of Maskelyne’s observatory. One platform was for the cabin, with the other one for the astronomical instruments.
Backpack for scale.
A job well done. The way back was very boggy. I took some solace in the fact that I was contouring around the hill that established contour lines. I was also spurred by the success of actually finding the site.
Final view back to Schiehallion.
A successful journey, and excellent adventure.
If you want to visit the site I would recommend reading the description in Simon Ingram’s: Between the Sunset and the Sea, and baseing your own search on the description provided.
However I did track my own route, and I had been about to give up my own search before I finally found the site. So my route:
No GIS in this post, so best to skip if you are not interested in UK election results.
The data has been released by the electoral commission, so I thought I would run a few queries in PostgreSQL to look at the numbers. These queries are based on the initial results, so may be subject to change.
The raw data can be found from: the Electoral Commission.

Some descripancies to note are extra spaces in the raw data. Overall a good correlation might be to look how many descriptions each party has and election outcome.
Next what I have found puzzling is some of the analysis based on raw voter numbers. One example by AVAAZ.org:
I find it misleading to say that the SNP only received 5% of the vote. They only revived 5% of the vote overall, but even had they received a 100% vote in Scotland, and voter turnout in Scotland had been 100% they would still only have received 4094784 votes. Had the SNP run in more than the 59 Scottish constituencies, then they would have revived more overall votes. It is useless looking at overall votes compared to seats, the percentage of possible votes provides a better comparison in my opinion with the current electoral format.
To do this the data needed to be slightly cleansed, with some descriptions combined, for example:
Lib Dems are made up of:
“liberaldemocratstrongereconomyfairersociety”, “liberaldemocratsstrongereconomyfairersociety”, “liberaldemocratsdemocratiaidrhyddfrydolcymru”, “liberaldemocrats”, “liberaldemocratfocusteam”, “liberaldemocrat/democratiaidrhyddfrydol”, “liberaldemocrat”
“conservatives”, “conservativeparty/ymgeisyddplaidgeidwadolcymru”, “conservativeparty”, “conservativeandunionistparty”, “conservativeandunionist”

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the vicinity of London in the next year. Impressive in scale and in detail. Fascinating way to get an overview of future development plans in London and the current extents of the city centre.
Visiting is free and the venue also has interesting displays if you are into architecture.

This is a pretty easy question to answer, using the 2011 Scottish Census population results and the Census Output Area Population Weighted Centroids. Then we get the extents of Edinburgh City Council from OS Boundary Line.
The results are:
To see how these boundaries look on a map:
A few caveats:
We are using the population weighted centroids, which will produce some minor inaccuracies, but is a very good generalisation.
Also we are using euclidean buffers on the British National Grid plain, so these are not geodesic buffers. The difference will likely be small at these distances.
Mapvember: A map/tutorial a day for every day in November.
Some days had more than one map, some had tutorials, one just had a photo. Some were very easy, others would have take a couple of days of work.
Excellent experience, good learning experience and an opportunity to post previous projects that were a bit short of being great. A little time consuming at times though. I started making the maps around half way through October, so I had almost the first week ready when November began, but the days ticked by quickly. Happy to have done it. I encourage everyone to join in next year, or any other month.
