Multiuser Editing with QGIS and PostGIS in an Enterprise Environment

Wednesday, May 31, 2023
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Multiuser editing is a fundamental requirement for an enterprise GIS and it is easily achievable with an open source GIS stack. In its simplest form, multiuser editing includes the ability to define various users or groups within an organization and grant certain types of permissions for each, such as read-only, editing, or administration rights. It is a way to control how data are accessed and maintained within the organization, and therefore it is critical to maintaining the integrity of mission critical data. Combining QGIS and PostGIS gives GIS administrators the ability to configure a robust, scalable multiuser environment that includes all of these capabilities. This webinar will introduce viewers to the following concepts and features:

  • User and group role management in PostgreSQL;
  • Schema, table, and field permissions;
  • Row-level security in a multiuser environment;
  • Default permissions in PostgreSQL;
  • Centralized QGIS symbology and projects;
  • Data auditing;

This 1-hour webinar will explain how LunaGeo configures cloud-based, multiuser editing environments from initial database design to security and data auditing. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
