  • What are some of the general capabilities of geospatial data? Data management, analysis, visualization
Who should attend this workshop?

This workshop is geared toward total beginners, with little to no GIS experience, who want to learn about what GIS can do, and the basics for working with spatial data.

 

Computers and data will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own laptop with QGIS (version 3.16 or newer) installed, or your own data to explore.

QGIS is a free, open-source, desktop GIS program that works on Windows or Macs. It can be downloaded from here.

 

Registration details coming soon.
