GIS Day! Workshop: Introduction to QGIS

GIS Day! Workshop: Introduction to QGIS


This introductory session will focus on the the fundamental concepts of skills needed to begin using Geographic Information Systems software for the exploration and analysis of spatial data using the open source GIS package QGIS.

Who Should Attend:

No GIS experience is necessary. This is a beginner oriented workshop. Those with GIS experience who are interested in becoming familiar with QGIS might also find it beneficial. 

Technology requirements:

Please bring a laptop with the latest or long term release of QGIS installed (download). QGIS runs on Windows, Mac & Linux machines. You may check out laptops from the Library but you should allow time to download the software ahead of the workshop. 

If you need installation assistance please make an appointment with Geospatial Program Assistant, Glenn Ingram here. Or come by Data & Viz Drop-In on Tuesday, November 16th.
