Number of available spots
QGIS is an open-source software that offers an alternative to the ESRI ecosystem. While the software is built to perform similar tasks, how they each approach those tasks can be quite different from appearance to output.
By the end of this workshop, you will be able to
- understand the principles of a GIS and the basics of geospatial data
- understand the structure of ArcMap and common data types used
- display and design a map
- render geospatial data
- link a table of non-spatial data to geospatial features.
Costs: McGill students: free of charge, McGill other: $ 50, external: $ 100 (priority given to McGill community)
The workshop will take about 2.5 hours with a short break in-between and will take place at McGill’s MacDonald in the MacDonald-Stewart building, room 2-028/29. The instructor is Tim Elrick.
