NRGS is planning a QGIS class in Athens Georgia for March 29th 2016. This class is confirmed with some people from the NE Georgia Health District having requested the class and registered. I will have a location very shortly.
I’m also updating this class for 2.14 with some newer material and new screenshots in the manual.
So if you are in the area and want to take a QGIS class – please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Length of workshop: Approximately 8 hours
- Interface and installation
- Map Production
What to expect from this workshop: Learning new software can be intimidating for some especially if you are used to a certain product that you have been using for years. (Anyone remember switching from ArcView GIS 3.x to ArcGIS Desktop 8.x?) Or perhaps you are new to GIS and looking for an affordable, user-friendly alternative to other popular GIS software. This is an introduction to QGIS that will get you familiar with the interface and many tools and features that will assist you with viewing, editing, analyzing, creating, managing, and serving GIS data in a variety of formats. Though QGIS is definitely a powerful tool to add to your GIS toolkit, it has some limitations and challenges that will be discussed in this workshop.
