This practical one-day course is intended for current GIS users and provides a rapid orientation to QGIS. Whether you intend to move wholesale to QGIS, or alternatively to establish it in a support role, alongside your current GIS software, this course aims to get you mapping in QGIS with the minimum of delay. There is an emphasis on comparisons to ArcGIS, the market leading commercial software, however the training is not exclusive to ArcGIS users. The course objective is universal—QGIS familiarisation for the GIS user. The course aims to describe the logic and functionality of QGIS—Signposting, so you can rapidly locate the tools you’re most interested in, or those that you currently use in work or studies.
