What will be covered during the session:
The session will be entitled “A practical introduction to OS OpenData”
It’s intended as an introduction to our range of OS OpenData products, and how to use them in a free and open source GIS.
Key learning outcomes:
- How to download OS OpenData products
- How to open OS OpenData products in QGIS
- Using OS OpenData with other open data
- Carrying out a spatial query in QGIS
Accommodate: Maximum 20
All delegates to provide their own laptop with wifi access and a USB port (we’ll package up the class materials, data and software on to USB sticks that we’ll be providing). Ideally, if delegates are able to pre-load the most recent version of QGIS onto their machines, well that would be beneficial.
The class materials that we’ll be running through, including data and links to the software needed are available on our website here - http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/innovate/masterclasses/index.html
