EDINA and the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh are offering a new training course in GIS
30 June 2017
This course is designed for those who already have a good grounding in GIS but want to take the skills they have in a commercial GIS package and use them in the leading OpenSource software, QGIS.
Many organisations are looking to complement their commercial GIS with QGIS to help drive down costs and unlock the extra functionality and time savings it can provide. On this course we will show you how to transfer your existing GIS skills to QGIS. The day consists of instructor-led practical exercises with work books provided. The software used will be the long term release version of QGIS, 2.14.
