About This Video

  • Learn how to work with various data and create beautiful maps using this easy-to-follow course

  • Add a touch of professionalism to your maps to improve the functionality and the look and feel with the help of this practical course

  • This progressive hands-on guide builds on a geo-spatial data and adds more reactive maps by using geometry tools

  • In Detail

    QGIS is a user-friendly open source geographic information system (GIS) that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows. The popularity of open source geographic information systems and QGIS in particular has been growing rapidly over the last few years. This video is a practical, hands-on course updated for QGIS 2.14 that provides you with clear, step-by-step exercises to help you apply your GIS knowledge to QGIS.

    This video takes you from installing and configuring QGIS to handling spatial data to creating great maps. You will learn how to load and visualize existing spatial data and create data from scratch. You will get to know important plugins, perform common geoprocessing and spatial analysis tasks, and automate them with processing. We will cover how to achieve great cartographic output and print maps. Finally, you will learn how to extend QGIS using Python and even create your own plugin.
