Training Course - Introduction to GIS (Geographic Information Systems) @ Nature Discovery Centre | England | United Kingdom

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are systems for storing, managing and analysing spatial data. This course is designed to introduce you to GIS and spatial data and enable you to display, manipulate and interrogate spatial data. You will learn about different types of spatial data, how to create simple maps, how to create and edit spatial data and how to carry out some simple analytical task.

This course is ideal for students and biological recorders looking for a basic introduction to GIS. This course will use the free open source QGIS system. A full set of course notes and course data will be provided. Participants will need to bring their own laptop with a copy of QGIS (which is freely available) already installed on it. If you do not have a laptop, please contact us in advance as we have a very limited supply of laptops for this course.
