QGIS LTR (2.8) is the minimum required QGIS version for RiverGIS 1.0. RiverGIS can be installed
from the plugin manager:

Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins... .

In the All tab search for rivergis, select it and click Install plugin button.

RiverGIS needs a connection to PostgreSQL database with spatial extensions of PostGIS .

PostGIS Installation
PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL database. PostgreSQL is released under the
PostgreSQL License, a liberal Open Source license, similar to the BSD or MIT licenses. PostGIS is
released under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2).

The Database

Download an installer that suits your needs from

services-training/pgdownload#windows. If you’re on 64-bit Windows, we suggest stable (non-
beta) Win-x86-64 installer. For a guidance visit PostgreSQL installation wiki.

During the installation you will be asked for database superuser (postgres) password – remember
it well. Choose the default port for connections (5432). In the end the installer offers a Stack
Builder for installing additional tools. Please, skip it.

Download appropriate PostGIS installer from PostGIS windows installers page For PostgreSQL 9.4 64-bit you need postgis-bundle-

Run the installer and choose ‘Yes’ for all questions (set GDAL_DATA environment variable, enable
raster drivers and out of db rasters).

PostgreSQL Con guration

RiverGIS requires a PostgreSQL database with PostGIS spatial extensions. PostgreSQL comes with
pgAdmin , a database management tool. We will use it to create spatial database for RiverGIS .

Run pgAdmin and connect to server. If you have just installed PostgreSQL , localhost:5432 is the
only option.
Double-click on the server and enter the password you set during the installation.

Right-click on Databases and choose New Database .

Enter a name and click OK. There are plenty of other options to set, but for now we choose
Open newly created database rivergis . There is only one schema (public) in the database and it
has only one extension (plpgsql). You can create new schemas here by right-clicking on the
Schemas or create them later from RiverGIS GUI.

Use to open SQL query editor and create PostGIS extensions for the database. Enter the
following query and press F5 :


CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology;
In QGIS de ne a new database connection from Layer > Add layer > Add PostGIS Layers... .

Pick New and ll in the connection details, for example:

In this case the database server is installed on the local mashine (localhost) and is working on the
default port 5432. The database is rivergis and user is postgres — a superuser with
administrative rigths, that was created during the database installation. Check the connection
using Test Connection . If the connection was succesful, close the dialog by clicking OK . If it fails to
connect, check the connection details and try again.
