I needed the QGis software but found out some dependencies were annoying to resolve on host machines other than Ubuntu. Add to that the fact that it comes with its own internal python, and you can conclude that managing it can be a little annoying. This repository comes to save everyone that needs to do geospatial analysis without headaches.
The following is a sample command I would use to run QGis with sound and data volumes on a Ubuntu 16.04 host:
$ docker run --rm \ -e DISPLAY \ -e QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 \ -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \ -v /home/user/qgis_projects:/qgis_projects \ crsilva/qgis:latest
