General

Feature: Mouse wheel over color dialog sliders

In QGIS 2.18 you can now scroll the mouse wheel over any of the sliders within the color picker dialog to increment the value by small amounts. This is a handy shortcut for small tweaks to color components.

Feature: Add custom color schemes to color button drop down menu

QGIS 2.18 adds the ability for users to set whether a user created color scheme should show up in the color button drop-down menus. This setting is controlled through the color picker dialog, on the lists tab. Just add a new color scheme, then from the scheme menu tick the new “show in buttons” option. It’s a handy shortcut if you have sets of common palettes and want them to be instantly available through the color menu.

Simbología

Feature: Color picker is now embedded in layer style panel

In QGIS 2.18 clicking a color button inside the layer style panel causes the color picker dialog to be opened inside the style panel itself rather than as a separate dialog. This allows for interactive modification of colors with immediate preview of the result.

Etiquetando

Feature: Substitution list support for labeling

Adds the ability to specify a list of text substitutes to make which apply to label text. Eg abbrevating street types.

Users can export and import lists of substitutes to make reuse and sharing easier.

Renderizado

Feature: Preview of raster tiles (WMTS and XYZ layers)

In previous versions of QGIS, users had to wait until download of all tiles of a layer has finished in order to view the resulting map. This has now been fixed and the tiles show up in map canvas immediately as they get downloaded, improving the user experience by greatly lowering the time until something is shown. Moreover, previously downloaded tiles from lower or higher resolutions may be used for the preview functionality in the areas where the tiles with correct resolution have not been downloaded yet.

Feature: Cancellable rendering of rasters (WMS, WMTS, WCS and XYZ layers)

This enhancement improves user experience when working with raster layers coming from remote servers. Previously one would need to wait until downloads are fully complete in order to be able to zoom or pan the map again, because the user interface would stay frozen in the meanwhile. This is now fixed by the fact that the rendering of raster layers can be cancelled any time.

Gestión de Datos

Feature: Add flag to only copy selected features

The offline editing plugins is a default plugin that ships with QGIS and allows you to offline a remote dataset (e.g. from a database), edit it in the field, and then resynchonise it when you get back to your office. This extends the offline editing possibilities to only work on subset of large layers.

Formularios y widgets

Feature: Allow controlling labels for individual edit widgets

Allow controlling labels for individual edit widgets in a form. In the drag and drop designer, a double click on an item will allow controlling if the label should be shown for each item individually.

In addition it is possible to configure if the link/unlink buttons are shown in relation reference widget, which is useful to hide in 1:n relations where a child can’t exist without its parents.

Feature: Conditional visibility for tabs and group boxes

This adds a new configuration option to conditionally show or hide tabs and groupboxes in drag and drop designer forms.

Configuration is done via a double click in the designer tree in the fields configuration interface.

An expression can be entered to control the visibility. The expression will be re-evaluated everytime values in the form change and the tab or groupbox shown/hidden accordingly.

Feature: Client side default field values

Allows an expression to be set for a vector layer field which is used to evaluate a default value for this field. Default value expressions can utilise properties of the feature which exist at the time of calling, such as digitized geometries. Expression variables can also be used in default value expressions, making it easy to eg insert a user’s name, the current datetime, project path, etc.

Diseñador de impresión de Mapa

Feature: True North Arrows

QGIS 2.18 adds support for orienting north arrows in the composer to True North. Previously all arrows were aligned to grid north, which is unsuitable for polar regions or non-north up projections (such as some South African projection systems). Now, you can choose to orient arrows to either grid north or true north. There’s also an optional offset angle, which can be used to specify a grid convergence to make your arrows orient to magnetic north!

Procesado

Feature: Point on surface algorithm

This new algorithm is similar to the centroids algorithm, but where a centroid may fall outside its corresponding feature the ‘Point on surface’ algorithm is guaranteed to create a point which is inside the corresponding polygon feature (or touching the corresponding line feature for line layers).

Feature: Processing dissolve algorithm accepts multiple fields

The dissolve algorithm now allows you to dissolve based on more than one field value. In previous QGIS versions a dissolve could only group features by a single field value.

Feature: Optimised processing clip algorithm

The processing clip algorithm has been optimised for common use scenarios, resulting in dramatic speedups for clipping operations. For example:

Clipping a roads layer with 1 million lines against 2 polygons

Versiones anteriores: 5 mins 30 segundos
QGIS 2.18: 10 segundos

Clipping a 5 million point address layer against 2 polygons

Versiones anteriores: 50 minutos
QGIS 2.18: 30 segundos

Feature: Merge connected lines algorithm

This algorithm joins all the connected parts of MultiLineString geometries into single LineString geometries. If any parts of the input MultiLineString geometries are not connected, the resultant geometry will be a MultiLineString containing any lines which could be merged and any non-connected line parts.

Feature: Geometry boundary algorithm

This new algorithm returns the closure of the combinatorial boundary of the input geometries (ie the topological boundary of the geometry). For instance, a polygon geometry will have a boundary consisting of the linestrings for each ring in the polygon, and a line geometry will have a boundary consisting of the start and end points of the line. This algorithm is only valid for polygon or line layers.

Proveedor de datos

Feature: Native support of XYZ tile layers

Raster tiles in XYZ format are now natively supported within WMS data providers, allowing users to display basemaps from other sources without requiring third-party plugins like QuickMapServices or OpenLayers anymore.

To add connections to XYZ layers, just open browser dock widget, look for item called “Tile Server (XYZ)” and right click it to get a popup menu with “New connection” action. You will be asked for URL, in which {x}, {y}, {z} will be replaced by the actual tile numbers according to the current map view. For example, to add OpenStreetMap base map, one may use this URL:
http://c.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png

The data provider also supports encoding of XYZ tile numbers into “quadkeys” used by Bing. Simply use {q} instead of {x}, {y} and {z} in the URL.

Servidor de QGIS

Feature: Possibility to segmentize feature info geometry in server

Necessary for geometries that contain curves (CircularArc, CompoundCurve, CurvePolygon), but the web client (e.g. QGIS Web Client) can’t handle the display of these geometry types.

This feature can be enabled in the “OWS server” tab in the “Project Properties” dialogue.

Característica: Nuevas clases PyQGIS en 2.18

Nuevas clases núcleo

  • QgsAnnotation - an interface for annotation items which are drawn over a map
  • QgsFeedback - a base class for feedback objects to be used for cancellation of something running in a worker thread
  • QgsOptionalExpression - an expression with an additional enabled flag

Nuevas clases IGU, Widgets reutilizables

  • QgsExpressionLineEdit - includes a line edit for entering expressions together with a button to open the expression creation dialog. This widget is designed for use in contexts where no layer fields are available for use in an expression and space is constrained.
  • QgsTabWidget - similar to QTabWidget but with additional methods to temporarily hide/show tabs

Característica: Nuevas funciones de expresión

QGIS 2.18 adds several new expression functions, including functions for angle/distance interpolation.

  • line_merge: merges a MultiLineString geometry into connected LineStrings
  • boundary: returns a geometry’s topological boundary, ie for polygons this is a MultiLineString representing the polygon’s rings
  • angle_at_vertex: returns the average (bisector) angle to a geometry at a specified vertex index
  • distance_to_vertex: returns distance along geometry to a specified vertex index
  • line_interpolate_angle: calculates the angle parallel to a geometry at the specified distance along the geometry
  • line_interpolate_point: returns a point on line at distance
  • line_locate_point: returns distance along line to nearest line location closest to specified point
