Distance between features

Calculating the distance between features (points, polygons, lines) is a common GIS task. Here I will use GRASS GIS to calculate the nearest sighting of mountain lions to Minnesota according to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) database.

Access soilgrid data using the WCS protocol

The soil data layers from soilgrid.org provides access to grid layers representing the spatial distribution of soil properties across the globe. This tutorial shows how to use the Python OWSLib package to access the data via the Web Coverage Service (WCS) protocol, the Python rasterio package to inspect and print the data, and GRASS GIS to store the data.
