My name is Ian Allan. I am a Masters graduate from (world top 100) Monash University in Melbourne Australia. While doing my post-graduate research in the 1990s, I co-authored the University’s first two GIS courses and taught both Grid Cell and Vector GIS to both Undergraduate and Graduate students.   

I have authored and co-authored fifteen peer reviewed publications. I have worked professionally as a GIS researcher, taught GIS to thousands of students, and worked as a GIS consultant on projects as diverse as the following…    

  • United Nations: Post tsunami strategic planning in Banda Ache  

  • Australian Federal Government: National Broadband strategic assessment.  

  • Victoria’s Department of Premier and Cabinet: Housing affordability modelling.  

  • Local Government: Environmental sustainability modelling for planners,   

  • Water industry: Buried water pipe condition modelling and ease-of-digging modelling


    GIS for Beginners #4: Learn Geocoding in QGIS 3
    will teach you…  

  • Generic geocoding concepts – why geocodes are important and how to improve your geocoding hit rate.  

  • How to format your addresses in preparation for geocoding. I show you some basic spreadsheet formulas and also some basic SQL in QGIS.

  • How to geocode in QGIS using the MMQGIS geocoding plugin – geocode an address using the MMQGIS google maps geocoder, street line geocoder, and address point geocoder.

 

For the past 24 years I’ve been a GIS researcher teacher and consultant.  Over 5000 students have enrolled in my GIS Udemy courses alone.  Here’s what some of my students say about my teaching style…

  "It was very thorough and comprehensive… Ian also covered aspects of GIS Analysis - which increases your learning and appreciation of the capabilities of how powerful the GIS tool can be" – Brian L      

"Ian is vast and knowledgeable in what he teaches. I would do another course by Ian if he offered it" - Umar Y      

"A very informative course. It helps me review the GIS experience I haven't used in a while and brush up on my skills. Thanks Ian." - Jayram S 

"Really great introductory-level course! The examples were simple to follow, but also very useful. All the work can be finished while watching the videos, there was no extra work to be done without guidance. I really look forward to the next course by this instructor. - Cheers and well done!" - Nathan L.      

"Very good background, easy to follow and helpful for a foundation of GIS." - Amelia K      

"Simple and very clear lectures with the minimum basics/backgrounds to get a taste of what awaits us further and also making us think of what we can do more." -Boojhawon R  

Here’s what you get…   

  • You get to eavesdrop as I work, and gain insights into geocoding that you would otherwise likely overlook or possibly never grasp.  

  • A zip file of the QGIS GIS maps and datasets I use in the videos. Extract these and follow-along with me in the videos.

  • 1 3/4 hours of QGIS training videos.  In the videos I’ll show you how to geocode in Quantum GIS, coordinate traps with the google maps geocoder, how to prepare your data for geocoding and how to improve your geocoding hit rate.

  • The course workbooks.  50 pages of screen captures and explanatory text to compliment the videos. DOWNLOAD THIS PDF WORKBOOK FOR FREE NOW!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS  

Q. Your GIS training course does not use ARC. Does this matter?  

A. No, it doesn’t matter. I teach you the basics of GIS in a way that’s applicable to ALL GISs, even Arc.  

Q. I have no experience with QGIS. Does that matter?     

A. If you’re technically savvy or can already find your way around the QGIS interface, you should have no problems. However, ideally you should have completed my QGIS for Beginners #1 course. 

Q. I am worried that this QGIS training course will be like many other technical courses - abstract and hard to follow.   

A. All exercises are deliberately based on the type of practical every-day GIS problems that I encounter day-to-day in my GIS consultancy. All my GIS for Beginners courses use datasets covering the same area - Yarmouth in Massachusetts. That means you get to understand how the value and usefulness of maps over an area increases as more maps are added.  Download the dataset and follow-along with the videos.  

Q. What Work Materials are there to support the teachings?  

A.  A 50 page Text with screen captures and explanations to compliment the videos, and a zip file containing the same datasets I use in the videos.   DOWNLOAD THE PDF WORKBOOK FOR FREE NOW!
