About: Do you ever wish you could speed up your spatial analysis – just tell the computer to process the data, then sit back, and let it go? Do you work with big datasets that don’t load well in a graphical GIS like ArcMap or QGIS? Maybe you’ve got a bunch of shapefiles that need to be combined in a specific way? Well, this is the right place for you. This session will provide background and hands-on experience with geospatial databases. Participants will learn how to import data, manage the spatial columns in a database, and run spatial processes like buffer or clip from a database environment.
How to prepare:
- Register for Event
- Bring Laptop
- Install the Spatialite Graphical User Interface (GUI)
- Install QGIS for data Visualization
