The free, open source QGIS program is used and supported by a world-wide array of developers. Learn how to use this program to produce maps from public databases and your own knowledge. In a hands-on environment, students will load basic maps, add lines, shapes, overlay images, create contour maps, add labels and produce high quality maps for print or digital presentation. A basic knowledge of GIS will be helpful to students, but is not crucial.
There will be minimal formal presentation, most of student time will be spent working on their own computer with instructional support. Coffee will be available throughout the day and students are free to move about and take breaks as needed.
