QGIS 3.10 LTR for GIS Professionals

Learn how to leverage the power of QGIS to improve your organizations spatial strategy
Instructor:
Michael Miller
2,148 students enrolled
English [Auto]
By the end of this course students will have a working knowledge of how to interact with the QGIS interface, the data storage options that are available to them, how to create beautifully styled maps for printing, the basics of analyzing geospatial data, and much more!

If you are a GIS professional who has been interested in exploring the options for open source GIS, there has never been a better time to start learning. The release of a major new version of QGIS means that what you learn today will likely be valid for many years.  There have also been many improvements that make it a reasonable choice for your core GIS application. 

In this course you will learn:

  1. What open source really means.
  2. How QGIS compares with commercial offerings.
  3. How to navigate the QGIS interface.
  4. What data source options are available and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  5. How to style your data.
  6. How to use selections and filtering to control which features you view and modify.
  7. How to work with attributes.
  8. How to make beautiful printed maps.
  9. How to create a map atlas.
  10. How to analyze vector and raster data.
  11. How to build spatial models for repeated tasks.
  12. How to get started with python scripting.
  13. How to work with 3D data.
  14. Much more!

QGIS is not perfect but I believe that what it does, it does very well. Especially with multi-user editing of enterprise data. I am not anti-commercial GIS, however I do believe that all GIS professionals should have a good understanding of all their options so that they may choose the best tool for the job.
