Discover Quantum GIS (QGIS) as a free and open source software alternative to traditional GIS platforms. QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System licensed under GNU General Public License. It is a great GIS tool for data management, image processing, map production, spatial modeling and it supports vast number of vector, raster and database formats and functionalities. QGIS provides large number of geospatial tools either through its core functions or through continuously growing repository of freely available plugins.
Class exercises will help you understand how to set up project, how to load, query, process and analyze vector and raster data.
You will learn how to use plugins for Point Cloud and LiDAR datasets, how to georeference raster file, how to digitize and create vector file, how to run basic classification of Remote Sensing datasets, how to analyze accuracy of geospatial data and how to create maps and reports based on your geospatial datasets.
