Class: Model Designer

Aug 21, 2023 | GIS, QGIS, Training

I keep typing Model Builder. Old habits die hard.

In my continuing efforts to deconstruct whatever training I was doing – I’m now into “Part 2” which is a model designer class. Way back in the day when I cared more for the ESRI stuff, I had written a model builder class and had the chance to teach it maybe twice. It was a decent class – nothing great because I was reaching the end of the road as a Business Partner with them and really starting to look at Free and Open Source Software for GEO as a way forward.

I had originally had this as a part of the intermediate class and the it didn’t quite “flow” like I wanted. It’s now it’s own thing. It will be an introduction into building Models with some Python (but not a lot).

The short description for those of you who are new: You can build Processing Models in QGIS. What is a processing model? You string together a set of processing commands in a GUI and connect everything together. Use math. Put boxes everywhere. Export it to python if you wish or save it to a project folder.

Anyway – it will probably be run the first time at $75 and then $100 or $120. I need to start contributing back with QGIS certificates (which usually run somewhere about $23 US for a Cert from the QGIS organization).

Expect more noise as I get this class going. I’m taking exercises from the Intermediate QGIS class and redoing them for this endeavor. Model Designer is fun to mess around with. I used it on a massive project earlier this year and it saved a pile of time
