The goal of this project is to create a QGIS Desktop plugin which provides a web service API that exposes QGIS' data processing and canvas drawing functionalities. The plugin provides a way to include QGIS in the data processing workflow of other (‘mapping-deficient’) programming languages over a HTTP interface which mirrors the existing QGIS API, without precluding the ability to make use of its interactive editing components. The project also covers the generation and documentation of automated geospatial analysis workflow examples using Jupyter notebooks for both Python and R. The example notebooks will integrate data obtained from Open Data repositories with use cases of the QGIS Web API as well as other OSGeo geospatial libraries to demonstrate the potential of automatic report generation for open source GIS analysis.
