Have you always wanted to create your own maps to help illustrate your research? Or perhaps you already have some background in GIS, and would like to learn how to use QGIS? This course will provide a basic overview of tools for data visualisation in QGIS, covering the following basic skills:

  • data import and exploration
  • creating maps and graphs and
  • exporting them in different formats

The focus of this course will be on the visualisation and mapping of data and using geographical location and thematic attributes. QGIS is a free and open source Geographic Information Systems software package that allows you to create beautiful maps.
