This workshop will introduce participants to QGIS, a powerful open source GIS software. The workshop will cover typical basic GIS software workflow needs such as loading data, changing the way data is displayed, and where to find analysis tools. In addition, participants will learn strategies for finding help with QGIS and tutorials for home learning.
QGIS is a free and open source desktop GIS software. Since its initial development in 2002, QGIS has become one of the industry’s leading software options for GIS. QGIS is used by researchers across the world as well as by many California and Federal agencies in the US. QGIS allows users to access a number of other GIS software packages through its graphical user interface including GRASS as well as user-contributed scripts and plug-ins.
About 40 people attended this workshop, making significant progress through the lab materials provided. Additionally, several people made connections with on-campus resources and met new contacts working on similar research questions. Materials for the workshop can be found on our GitHub Repository.
