Hi Richard -

Be my guest, knock yourself out, go ahead - It's always nice if other people can use the work that was invested in this project ;-)


I haven't too much time to spare the next month or two, so you have my full permission to write an article about this method. I can of course help you by "proof" reading the article before publishing if you find it necessary.

And I agree fully with you about using an ini file based approach to save settings for Qgis :-)

Regards

Bo Victor

Bo: thanks for this great write up!

Is it ok if you/I write a small article on blog.qgis.org or qgis.nl or
qgis.dk and point to the english version of your writeup?

https://github.com/Frederikssund/Alternativ-QGIS-installation/blob/master/Readme%20-%20english.md

I think a lot of organisations/windows system admins will be greatfull
to you!

By the way, in my view the default storing mechanism of settings should
be ini file based anyway! I'll try to bring this up on the dev list again.

Regards,

Richard Duivenvoorde

We ( as in the municipality of Frederikssund, Denmark) has a medium size
enterprise installation of Qgis 2.8 at around 100 local installations of
Qgis 2.8 in a Windows-7 64 bit environment. There is no significant
problems with this installation.

The largest problem by far was to sift through a mountain sized heap of
tab files from an older installation of MapInfo and determine which
should be restructured, cleaned and  imported to our MS-SQLServer based
database environment.

In the near future - probably a month - We are doing a roll out of Qgis
2.18 to around 250 Windows workstations using this method:

"https://github.com/Frederikssund/Alternativ-QGIS-installation"; (don't
worry about the Danish readme.md - there is documentation in English too
;-)

If you have a large amount of different layers / tables, I suggest you
take a look at the "QLR Browser" plugin. This plugin provides an immense
help to structure user access to a large number of layers:

And of course: Use a database to store your data. Preferably
Postgres/PostGIS (Open source and IMHO the most powerful spatial
database), but MS-SQL Server or Oracle will do If you don't have a
choice regarding database systems.

I am using QGIS in a single stand-alone situation and I was wondering
what examples there are of medium to large corporations using QGIS as
their GIS platform and what issues you need to be aware of in large
multi-user QGIS situations?
