Born in 2002 as a simple layer viewer in the last 5 year more than 200 developers all over the world contributes to the source code making QGIS the standard of the GIS. The course is intended for people with no experience of GIS but also for those who want to switch from another GIS software to QGIS. The course will be focused on practical examples so that the students will be able to load and process their own data and perform both simple and complex spatial analysis. Course materials (example data, presentations, additional files) will be provided to participants.
Students and researchers with absolutely no GIS experience will learn the basic GIS system concepts and will be able to work alone with QGIS. However, people with both GIS concept and QGIS experience will enjoy the course. Furthermore, the course is useful to all of those people who want to migrate from another GIS software (ArcMap, gvSIG, GRASS, etc..) to QGIS.
Students can have absolutely no GIS (or QGIS) experience. GIS experts that want refresh some GIS concept or want to discover hidden features of QGIS are welcome!
