This webinar will be an introduction to Quantum GIS (QGIS). QGIS (https://www.qgis.org) is an open source GIS that is growing in popularity and ability. QGIS aims to be a user-friendly GIS, providing common functions and features, and provides a continuously growing number of capabilities provided by core functions and plugins. You can visualize, manage, edit, analyze data, and compose printable maps. We will explore QGIS by constructing a map for a virtual tour of the National Conservation Training Center, the location of OFWIM’s 2019 Conference and Annual Meeting. The webinar will cover the QGIS software interface, viewing data, and composing maps.
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites but if you want to have QGIS loaded on your local machine you should be able to follow along and test QGIS on your local data. QGIS can be downloaded at https://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
The long term release (Version 3.4) is the version that will be used in the demonstration during the webinar.
Additional resources ( NCTC campus map, data files used in the webinar, instructions for extracting the data, and a guide to the order in which data layers will be assembled in a QGIS ‘Project’ for the webinar ) related to the webinar can be found at:
