kamelseesv has been updated

After a little bit of troubleshooting yesterday with some input files, I’ve updated my kamelseesv script to add a few more lines about the output format (latitude and longitude will appear reversed in the KML file, but they are really in X,Y format instead of Y,X format) and to allow you to view/download the result rather than copying and pasting into a text file. This should let people preview converted datasets without having to save each and every one of them.

How to edit a layer if you’ve never edited a layer before in QGIS

Remember, you have to set the snap tolerance of each layer individually for each layer you want to edit. To do this in 0.11.0 Metis, select Settings -> Project Properties and click “Snapping options…” under the “General” tab. Make sure the checkbox next to the layer you want to edit is selected. I have not needed to change the tolerance from “0” yet. This is set in map units (see Project Properties, General tab).

Really, this is an annoying step, and something that probably frustrates noobs like me (who jump in without reading the whole guide) a whole lot.
