The course is structured in units having different levels of difficulty that comes in help of the student who will learn the general concepts of a Geographical Informational System, working with vectorial, alphanumeric and raster data, handling the geo-processing tools and map creation.
Enrolled students in this online course will learn by the end of this course how to use Qgis effectively the course will cover only the basics in the beginning and an intermediate level section , and an advanced section will be added later.
Who this course is for:
- GIS engineers
- GIS students
