Getting started with QGISExport this event to calendar

Friday, October 13, 2017 — 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

Ever wanted to try Open Source GIS but didn’t know where to start? Here you will learn how Open Source compares to the “big guys.” This workshop builds on “Getting started with ArcGIS” (a recommended prerequisite for those with no previous GIS experience, but not absolutely necessary). This workshop introduces users to a different environment for creating maps with GIS.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand what QGIS is and its capabilities

  • Navigate QGIS software and tools

  • Find and add data to a map

  • Discover information and attributes about the data

  • Produce a simple map that shares your visualization of the data
