Qgis-beginner-level

The course objective is to initiate the student in QGIS, a free and open source desktop geographic information system software, with a complex working environment which allows users to analyze and edit spatial information. QGIS supports multiple types of data (vector and raster formats), web services, providing in the same time, a variety of useful commands and utilities for geo-processing due to its integration with GDAL and OGR libraries. QGIS links also with other open-source GIS packages, including GRASS GIS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System), extending its capabilities to digital satellite image processing and analysis.

The course is structured in units having different levels of difficulty that comes in help of the student who will learn the general concepts of a Geographical Informational System, working with vectorial, alphanumeric and raster data, handling the geo-processing tools and map creation.

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.

  • Highlight the importance and utility of a Geographic Information System (GIS), its integration and applicability in a variety of professional sectors.
  • General overview about the basic skills needed in QGIS and GRASS GIS handling and essential concepts used by a GIS system.
  • Learn about GIS key tools in an appropriate and professional way, usage of vector and raster data information in order to develop complex spatial analysis.
  • Find about all possible difficulties which you may encounter in the execution of GIS projects, and their solutions through practical exercises.
  • Gain experience in data preparation, layout development, map creation and high quality products delivery.

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.
