  • Working with Vector Data

  • Styling Map Data

  • Importing & Exporting Data

  • Connecting to Web Services

  • Loading Raster Layers

  • Data Capture Editing

  • Measuring & Calculating Geometries

  • Spatial Geo-Processing

  • Using Print Composer

  • QGIS & Databases



QGIS Essentials is a 2 day course running on the 13th and 14th of November from 9:30am until 5:00pm on each day
