visualizing spatial data on maps in different ways, combining and analyzing data to discover patterns and relationships.
By the end of the course, participants will be prepared to start working with the software on their own.
Topics to be covered shall include:
 Explore geographic data: How geographic data is stored; Vector and raster data;
 Coordinate systems and map projections: What is a coordinate system?; Geographic coordinate systems; Projected coordinate systems;
 Querying GIS data: Selection method; Identifying data; Find feature; Take measurements.
 Creating feature classes/shape files: Feature class organization; Feature class properties and attributes; Creating a new feature class;
 Editing features and attributes: Reasons to edit data; Working with the Editor toolbar; Edit sketches; Common editing tools;
Edit tasks; Snapping to features while editing; Creating new features; Adding x,y data; Editing attributes; Calculating values for geometry fields;
 Geo-processing: Proximity analysis to features (creating buffers, Euclidean distance surfaces); working with terrain spatial data;
 Data collection using GPS/ODK; Importing data collected to QGIS; Creating shape files;
 Map Composition (Map Composer): Symbolizing Qualitative and Quantitative Data; Choosing Symbology; Types of symbols (marker, line, fill);
