The second workshop in the series equips you with the skills to create and manage geospatial data, covering data types, sources, and the practical aspects of maintaining a well-organized GIS database.  You will delve deeper into spatial data, and practice creating, editing, and managing data.

Workshop 3: Basic Spatial Analysis in QGIS

Tuesday, March 5

Building on your foundational GIS knowledge, this workshop will help you master essential spatial analysis techniques in QGIS, such as extracting, manipulating, and joining spatial data to help them glean valuable insight from spatial relationships and geographic data.  You will explore spatial analysis skills using real-world scenarios in QGIS, and gain an understanding of the vast and endless possibilities of spatial analysis using GIS.

Workshop 4: Publishing with QGIS

Tuesday, March 19

In this workshop, you will explore the art of map publishing in both static and interactive online formats. You will learn to incorporate cartographic and user design principles, ensuring your maps are not only informative, but visually compelling for effective communication and presentation.  At the end of the workshop, you will understand design best practices to create aesthetically pleasing and informative maps. This workshop will also include an introduction to QGIS Cloud.
