How to obtain the LPIS enclosures layer for CartoDruid from the information of your Autonomous Community
In this post, we will teach you how to download the information from the Open Data portal of your Autonomous Community and how to build the LPIS layer from scratch and get it ready to work with CartoDruid.
This tutorial will guide you through the process of exporting data from a Web Feature Service (WFS) to a SpatiaLite database using QGIS, a popular Geographic Information System (GIS) application, and OGR, a geospatial data conversion library. As an example WFS we will use the WFS service from the Andalusian Autonomous Community, but you can repeat this process with any other WFS service.
CartoDruid is an ideal tool for those users with limited knowledge in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), however, it is an application designed for Android. Often, we encounter users who want to use CartoDruid on their PC to be able to work from the office and ask us how they can do it. This is where the utility of Screen Copy (Scrcpy) comes into play. With this tool, in a few steps, you can duplicate and control your Android device from the PC, allowing you to use applications like CartoDruid in a comfortable and efficient way. Plus, it's completely free, making it even more attractive to those looking for a nimble and cost-effective solution to work with CartoDruid from their computer.
Great news for all CartoDruid users! We are delighted to announce that we now provide full support for Android 13. We have resolved an issue regarding access to SD cards that was occurring on some devices running Android 13.
The Cartodruid team is proud to announce the release of a new version of Cartodruid. This version adds several features and improvements. To enjoy them, download or update Cartodruid from the Play Store.
CartoDruid is a very useful tool for creating cartographic projects that incorporate different layers of information, including raster layers that consult TMS services. Its configuration is simple and can be done manually or through the user interface provided by the application. When using TMS services in CartoDruid, it is important to take into account that each service has its own specifications and parameters, such as image format, scale, zoom level, etc. Therefore, it is necessary to know well the service you want to use and configure it properly in CartoDruid in order to be able to display the maps correctly.
The latest version of Cartodruid gives us the possibility to identify the user who opens the project with basic authentication capabilities. This allows, on the one hand, to register in the project's database which user has modified a Feature, and to establish a simple access control to the project.
One of the most common tasks in the field is to make measurements and taking points, which in usually known as surveying.
CartoDruid has tools to perform these tasks, let's see some practical examples about how to carry them out.
No doubt many times In your CartoDruid projects, you need to add new entities that you already have in another format. These entities can be included in your layer using the GeoCSV import feature of CartoDruid.
CartoDruid is not capable of handling Shapefile files (.shp) natively, so the way to work with them is to import them into SpatiaLite (SQlite) files that can be managed by the application.
