Intro to GIS/GPS

$100, approved for VT Land Surveyors Continuing Education Credit # CE416-0216

Participants will gain an understanding of fundamental geospatial concepts which they will then apply in learning how to use online mapping applications, consumer grade GPS receivers, and QGIS open source GIS software. QGIS will be used to explore and display geospatial data, to create new geospatial data, to perform simple geospatial analysis, and to compose basic maps appropriate for printing or publishing. Participants will develop a mapping question or project that they will explore and build on throughout the course. Training manual chapters from last year's class are posted  so you can check out what is covered or use them for self-training.
