Descrição do Curso

The most commonly used Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools automate tasks that were historically done manually—compiling new maps by overlaying one on top of the other or physically cutting maps into pieces representing specific study areas, changing their projection, and getting meaningful results from the various layers by applying mathematical functions and operations. This course is an easy-to-follow guide to use the most mature open source GIS tools for these tasks.

You’ll start by setting up the environment for the tools we’ll use in the course. Then you’ll learn how to work with QGIS in order to generate useful spatial data. After that, you’ll get to know the basics of queries, data management, and geoprocessing.

By the end of this course, you’ll have an understanding of the aspects of building a GIS system and will be able to take that knowledge with you to whatever project calls for it.

About the Author :

Gábor Farkas is a PhD student at the University of Pécs's Institute of Geography. He holds a master's degree in geography, although he moved from traditional geography to pure geoinformatics in his early studies. He often studies geo-informatical solutions in his free time, keeps up with the latest trends, and is an open source enthusiast. He loves to work with GRASS GIS, PostGIS, and QGIS, but his all-time favorite is Web GIS, which is his main research interest.
