Brief description:

This introductory workshop will focus upon the fundamental concepts and skills needed to begin using Geographic Information Systems software for the exploration and analysis of spatial data using the open QGIS platform. QGIS is an open source GIS application, similar to ArcGIS. QGIS is free and runs on Mac, PC, and Linux. Students will learn to use QGIS to perform basic spatial analysis and data manipulation. Topics will include (1) projections and coordinate systems; (2) basic data management; (3) geoprocessing of geogrpahic data.

This class meets twice (6:00 - 9:00 p.m.): on May 7 and 14.
