Introduction to QGIS Dec 7-8 2021

Oct 18, 2021 | QGIS, Training

I should have titled this “Exploring QGIS” – but you may not have read the last blog post. Anyway – I will be rebranding the Intro class into Exploring QGIS for 2022.

So – the last class I will teach of 2021.

What will we do? Explore QGIS and run through all the core functionality. It will be a good introduction to see if this software will work for your organization (Spoiler alert – it will). We have lessons, Q&A, and generally try to be rowdy, and break stuff.

I will be offering a “health check” before we do this. I’d like to see how comfortable you are with everything and how I can make it better/easier/more fun for you as the student.

Things we will cover:

  • Interface
  • Community
  • Data
  • Symbology
  • Processing
  • Layouts.

Part of the proceeds from the class funnel into the QGIS Software.

  • Dates: December 7th and 8th from 12 to 4 EST. Just 4 hours a day for 2 days.
  • Cost: $175 US
  • Link: Eventbrite
  • Location: Zoom – so it’s everywhere and no where.
  • I’ll be sending out data/PDFS the closer we get to the class.
  • Seats: 10

Anyway – come join in for a rowdy final QGIS class that is a good overview for the new user.

Beck Knob Project

If I ever had to stand behind one thing I've learned as a business and working in Geo - there is no end to free work. A few years ago I had to do a hard stop on volunteer projects and settle on one a year. That one can be one week in length. It can be 6 months. It can...

QGIS Support Redux

Back to QGIS ramblings. I mentioned in a previous blog post I was doing QGIS support specifically for one company but in reality it's been about every client where I install QGIS. The one company turned into a retainer where I tested the waters of "can I do this?"....
