PLEASE NOTE: more details about this postponed course will appear shortly.
Course places are limited and registration by 17 May 2018 is strongly recommended.
Please note this course can be taken as a one-day course, or can also be taken in conjunction with another one-day course on 28 March 2018.
This one day event for researchers lead by Clear Mapping Co, will cover how to prepare and analyse spatial data using a range of techniques in QGIS.
In this course we will cover how to use a variety of different types of spatial data. We will show you how to display data with postcodes, plot data with XY coordinates (e.g. crime data) and analyse a range of data using tools such as spatial overlay, buffers and a range of other spatial analyses. We will recap the basic theory needed to understand what is happening in GIS, as well as giving you step-by-step practical instructions to work with a range of types of data in QGIS, the market leading free, open-source GIS. We will also show you how to combine different data layers and use the GIS to help you make spatial decisions.
The course covers:
By the end of the course participants will:
David Partridge, BSc, PgDip
David (Dave) Partridge is a GIS Course leader who has worked for the Dartmoor National Park. He delivers GIS Courses around the country for students, public and private institutions.
By the end of the course you will be confident at importing and processing spatial data from a variety of sources, and have the knowledge to apply these skills to your own data sets. We will have some dedicated time towards the end of the course for you to apply the skills you have learnt to your own data sets.
It is recommended that you have some previous experience of working with spatial data, ideally using QGIS. Attendance at Clear Mapping Co’s Introduction to QGIS: Understanding and Presenting Spatial Data course would be fine, or another course covering similar material. Please contact Nick Bearman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details if you are unsure whether you have sufficient experience.
