This workshop builds upon the "Intro to GIS: QGIS" workshop and will include a survey of tools for spatial analysis.
Participants should have some familiarity with GIS and QGIS (possibly from the "Intro to GIS: QGIS" workshop) or be experienced users of ArcMap without any experience in QGIS. Participants do not need to have any Python or R experience.
Software Used: Quantum GIS (QGIS)
This workshop includes use of the QGIS software suite to manipulate, analyze, and visualize data. As time allows, specific topics to be covered include:
- vector-based spatial analysis
- vector geometry operations (centroids, triangulation)
- manipulation of attribute tables (join, field calculator)
- and raster analysis (neighborhood and zonal statistics, terrain and distance functions, interpolation, and map algebra)
- use of the print composer to produce and export finished maps
- tour of some interesting QGIS plugins
- briefly demonstrates QGIS's integration with Python and R.
Before you come
This workshop is designed for attendees who have the following:
- a Yale NetID to use lab machines
