The objective of this course is to initiate the student in route analysis using QGIS. The training material approach also information about: geoprocessing tools, mapping basic concepts, performing spatial analysis.

Two additional modules: Introduction to Relational Databases with PostGIS/PostgreSQL and Programming using Python are included.

Enrolled students in this online course will have access to our virtual e-learning platform (which is available 24 hours), where they will find the content of the course, practical exercises, forum discussion and additional content. One of the advantages of this online platform, is that students can benefit of real time support and assistance offered by the instructor (2 hours per week), whom they can contact via direct messages, regarding course related issues, at any moment. They can also contact the instructor via email.

Why should we learn to use QGIS?

Geographic Informational Systems (GIS) are rapidly spreading and becoming an essential tool in many work fields including, engineering, environment, geography, geology and mining, emerging sciences, geomarketing. From all open source GIS software products, QGIS is the best due to, its large online support community, which always favor up to date status, continuous development of new capabilities, easy integration with other open source packages, improved performance with each release.

Do I need previous QGIS training?

No, the training course starts from the very beginning. You do not need any previous QGIS knowledge.

I do not have the software QGIS, what are my options?

QGIS it is a free, open source software that can be downloaded from the official website (http://www.qgis.org/en/site/). It is very simple to get and install it on your computer.  However, in each course we have included a help manual that is come in handy if you want to download and install QGIS on your local machine.

Our online courses, are distributed via Moodle, the world’s most popular learning platform. It is a highly flexible Learning Management System that can be used to conduct and access courses, accomplish tasks of practical exercises, interact face-to-face to the teaching staff or benefit of support and resources at any time.

The online platform can be accessed 24 hours a day, in which the student will be able to ask for help at any given moment. The instructors will act as supervisors during all the training process, offering support for any possible difficulty encountered by the students along the course.

The course is structured in different modules, making it easy for the student to search for training material, download information, complete practical exercises and take assessments in order to verify their new gained abilities. The instructors will assist the students throughout all the course period, offering progressive help and information according to their evolution.
