Introduction to QGIS: Understanding and Presenting Spatial Data
We are pleased to offer you this short course jointly organised by the Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRC-E) and Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC).
Please note this course can be taken as a one-day course, or can also be taken in conjunction with other two one-day courses on 20 July and 21 July 2017.
This course will introduce spatial data and show you how to import and display spatial data with the free open source GIS program QGIS. We will also show you how to create choropleth maps and explain appropriate methods of visualising spatial data. We will also cover some basic spatial data analysis (e.g. calculating rates).
This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to use spatial data in their role. This includes academics, commercial users, government & other public sector researchers who have data with some spatial information (e.g. address, postcode, etc.) which they wish to show on a map. This course is also suitable for those who wish to have an overview of what spatial data can be used for. No previous experience of spatial data is required.
No previous experience of GIS or QGIS is required, but some experience of using spatial data will be beneficial.
