Event description

Description

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



Learning Objectives

This workshop, taught by deeply experienced instructor Brian Quinn, provides an introduction to some tools that can transition you from a consumer of mapping products toward a producer of maps and analyses based on them.

Assumed will be that you know something about working with maps on computers, geospatial data, and a geographic information system (GIS) even if it is proprietary, and that you bring experience that will contribute something meaningful to the workshop.

You want to learn how to work with and analyze mapped data yourself, and not just watch as others work through the challenges and present their results? Have a particular problem that you’d like to solve with mapping technology? In three three-hour sessions we won’t get too advanced, but we will share some methods and get people started on solving their mapping problem in this workshop.

In our first session we will do a quick review of QGIS basics, some demonstations of amazing things you can do with QGIS and an "advanced beginner" exercise. During our second session we will continue with a few exericeses such as geocoding, geoprocessing, raster analysis, georeferencing, or 3D mapping. In our final session you will be challenged to undertake an exploratory data/map analysis project using downloadable data from the DataSF website.

Required Textbook

"Discover QGIS 3.x" by Kurt Menke. Students can download it in PDF format for about $35.00. Textbook details are found here: https://locatepress.com/dq3
