Event description

Description

This Workshop is Proudly Hosted by BayGeo and the University of San Francisco's Geospatial Analysis Lab



Learning Objectives

This workshop provides an introduction to the basics of QGIS - an amazingly powerful, free, open source, and cross-plaform GIS. The first session will get you started quickly with an overview of the QGIS interface, some demonstrations of cool things you can do with QGIS, and the completion of a few simple exercises. In our second session we will conduct different exercises invovling vector and raster data as well as the important GIS skill of attribute and spatial queries. During our last session we will undertake slightly more advanced topics such as working with geoprocessing tools.

My hope is that you will love QGIS after completing this workshop and continue to the second QGIS workshop offered by the GIS Education Center in November 2019!

Your Instructor

Andrew Middleton is a GIS Analyst at Northgate Environmental Management. He says "Like many in the geospatial field, I started by majoring in Environmental Science and then getting distracted by the incredible power of GIS. After college I spent six years in industry using GIS and CAD to draft utility infrastructure, work with large data sets, manage projects and navigate complex bureaucracy. Today I get to use my science background, field experience and my passion for natural resources management in concert with the skills I've learned in industry to work in the consulting world where customers demand maps that are functional AND pretty. I finished a General Assembly Data Science course where I learned Python, Pandas, and machine learning which have become valuable data processing and analysis skills."
