This is a course for meteorologists, geoscientists, analysts and other scientific staff.
Familiarity with programming concepts (in any language) is assumed.
By the end of the course, you will have all the knowledge you need to start working competently with QGIS for analysing and processing geospatial data and producing publication- quality maps
Day 1 teaches the basics of using QGIS for general geoprocessing tasks:
This day teaches you how to build upon the basics by using QGIS extensions to perform more advanced GIS tasks:
We are happy to offer on-the-spot problem-solving after each day of the training for you to ask one-on-one questions — whether about the course content and exercises or about specific problems you face in your work and how to solve them. If you would like us to prepare for this in advance, you are welcome to send us background info before the course.
Live instructor-led training (face-to-face).
We will provide you with printed course notes, cheat sheets, and a USB stick containing kitchen-sink installers for multiple platforms, solutions to the programming exercises, several written tutorials, and reference documentation on QGIS and the third-party packages covered in the course.
Modern computer-based training facilities (CBD locations) for face-to-face training.
Face-to-face: an internet-connected computer will be provided for you.
