This 2 day course introduces the use of GIS using the Open Source GIS solution, QGIS. QGIS is a free desktop GIS, and provides the same GIS functionality as commercial desktop GIS solutions such as ArcGIS or MapInfo. QGIS is completely free.
We’d recommend using QGIS if you have a small number of GIS users in your organisation who need access to more complex functionality offered by a typical desktop GIS.
The course is taught by means of tutor-led teaching and hands-on exercises, and will quickly get you up to speed with GIS using QGIS. Attendees should have basic IT knowledge, but prior knowledge of GIS is not necessary.
Attending this course entitles delegates to receive 4 CPD points towards their continual Professional Development under the Association for Geographic Information (AGI) Chartered Geographer scheme.
