GIS (Geographic Information Systems

GIS Workshop 1: Turn Data into a Map

We’ll use QGIS to combine tables with available geometry to turn make a map. We’ll cover clipping, filtering, joining data, and creating a choropleth map. Then we’ll add points from another table, graduated and proportional symbols, and create a map worthy of your report or poster.

GIS Workshop 2: Georeferencing Images 
Do you have a historical map you’d like to overlay with a modern one? Or an air photo you’d like to match to today’s landscape? We’ll use QGIS to do just that.
