Online Advanced QGIS Course. The course is run via a series of zoom video calls.
This online course builds on the delegates existing knowledge of QGIS. It comprises a series of presentations, demos and computer practical sessions using FREE open source GIS software. The example datasets are taken from a variety of fields.
Delegates are introduced to advanced analysis techniques using both raster and vector data. The course includes a basic introduction to the PostgresSQL/PostGIS enterprise database as well as the Python programming language. The course is designed for existing users of QGIS that want to expand their knowledge and carry out higher-level analysis.
This course is intended for those who have either completed our Introduction to QGIS course or have equivalent knowledge and experience.
Aims and objectives: • To develop delegates understanding of the fundamental concepts of GIS including its strengths and limitations • To expand on the concept of Open Source software • To introduce the more advanced functionality of QGIS software package. • To teach the advanced skills needed to obtain, import, manipulate, analyse, interpret, manage and output spatial data in order to investigate topics in the delegate's area of interest • To demonstrate real-world uses of GIS
Learning outcomes - by the end of the course, delegates will have a knowledge and understanding of: • Working with spatial databases including importing existing data sets • Manipulating coordinate systems in QGIS • Advanced field calculations • Working with topologies • Vector processing including tools such as union • Raster processing and how to use the raster calculator • Graphical Modeller • PostGIS databases
