    Hi, I stumbled across your site while I am currently researching how to get CAD stuff (dwg or dxf, or frankly, layered PDFs exported out of AutoCAD/Revit/Archicad) to play nicely with leaflet.js

    I’ve been able to use gdal to help me turn layered PDFs into tiles for use with leaflet, but not really anywhere as far as using/toggling/seeing the layers in the front-end / leaflet. Anyways, would love to pick your brain… feel free to email me.

    Hi, how are you? Do you still have the QGis plugin for MongoDB. I cant find it anymore? Thanks.

      I do not. Looks like the site that had it is no longer available. Very unfortunate.

    Hi Paul,

    I’m looking for a way to show activities that were made via QR code scanning on a map.
    Say I have QR codes all over a certain area and I ask users (e.g.hikers) to scan QR code as they see one and submit a form (the link from the code). I would like then to be able to show on a map the locations of where those scans had taken. How can I do that?

      Each QR code would link to a page with a form, lets say the URL of this page is htttp://yourdomain/trail.html. The QR codes link will be http://yourdomain/trail.html?x=35&y=-106 or whatever the coordinates of the QR Code are. You will need to know their location before creating them.

      When each is scanned you will have the coordinates and they click submit and you send the form AND the coordinates. The page needs to put this in a DB somewhere.

      Does this make sense? You pass the coordinates as a parameter to your URL and catch it and submit it with the form. If you need more info, email me or give me yours and I will reply longer.

    Big fan of what u post on ur site. Would it be possible to scan a QR code as an ID, but have it open up a multiple choice thing before heading over to a database?

    • paulcrickard October 23, 2015 at 3:01 am #

      You could redirect to a website that has a drop down or radio buttons that allow a choice, then go to the database and query based on ID and choice. Email me and I can throw up a sample for you.
