This class will provide a basic introduction to the popular QGIS Open Source GIS software. In this hands on workshop, we will look at adding in and styling data from popular formats including rasters, shapefiles, geodatabases, and CSV files. You’ll learn how to install plugins to perform various GIS processes similar to those found in ArcMap such as generating LiDAR contours, geocoding, clipping, merging, etc. Included will be adding in basemaps and printing maps to PDFs. Finally, we will look at other sources of tutorials available to further your QGIS education. If you have a laptop, please plan to bring it to the classroom pre-installed with QGIS; otherwise we may be able to provide one for your use.
This class will be held on Tuesday, August 8 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm in the 2nd floor training room at 141 S Gordy St, El Dorado, KS 67042. Registration is $30 for members, and $70 for non-members. Snacks will be provided. Class will be limited to 15 participants.
