GIS in QGIS 3 for beginners
What you'll learn
- Using QGIS 3 software from scratch
- Working with spatial data
- Digitalization and map visualization
- Finding and loading data (local and online)
- Graphic files calibration
- Data visualization styles
- Geoprocessing of vector and raster data
- Importing GPS coordinates
- Attribute interpolation
- Spatial statistics calculations
- Selective search
- Creating maps
- 3D visualization
- Computer using basics (if You know where is right mouse button You’re good to go)
In this course you will learn everything you need to know to start your journey with GIS software by solving a real-life scenario.
We will start by preparing our project and all data we might need, planning our work and managing task progress. I will show you all the most important tools, you will learn how to import and export spatial data, modify it, calculate parameters, search for cases, visualize data, create maps and much more. It is a KNOW-HOW for every beginner in spatial analysis, whether you are a student, an administration employee, a data enthusiast or you just want to expand your competences. By the end of this course You will have a project file that You can later show for example to your future employer.
The course is based on free QGIS software in the latest, 3rd version. Thanks to its open source license, QGIS is widely used by many companies, both state-owned and in the private sector. The environment is constantly being developed, updated and regularly translated into many languages. The multitude of available data analysis options makes it one of the most popular GIS programs in the world!
No knowledge of GIS is required to start the course. You only need to spend some time learning, willingness and knowing how to operate the computer. That's all, you'll learn everything else in the course.
The course continues at the intermediate level, where we develop the skills learned in this course.
Who this course is for:
- Spatial analysts
- People interested in GIS
- People interested in spatial analytics
- Beginners in GIS
- Anyone who wants to learn something new
In 2013, I've graduated with honors Cracow University of Technology, obtaining a Master in Engineering degree in the field of Environmental Engineering. A year later I've started doctoral studies, and in June 2018 I obtained a doctoral degree in the field of Geography. I am currently working at one of Polish Universities, as reasearch & teching adjunct, where I deal with the analysis of data in both: the statistical and spatial fields. My interests are focused on new techniques, especially machine learning and artificial intelligence. I am currently working on several own research and science projects, my publications can be found in both Polish and foreign scientific journals. Recently, I have taken a personal goal to create a series of courses in which I will share in an accessible way my knowledge in the field of mathematics, spatial analysis and programming. That is why new content can be expected in the coming months. See you in the course :)
