IS&T RCS Tutorial - Introduction to QGIS

QGIS is an open source GIS desktop application that can be downlaoded for free and it provides a collection of tools for managing, analyzing, and visualizing spatial data. This application has a resemblance to commercial GIS products ArcGIS Pro and ArcMap. In this session I will introduce you to the user interface of QGIS and go through simple workflows to get you started on using the software, such as importing data, symbolizing data, adding labels, and more.So that we can cover more material during this timeframe, this tutorial will be presented as a demonstration, rather than a hands-on session. This tutorial will be recorded and the link to the recorded session will be distributed to the attendees so that you can practice my examples at your own pace.Prerequisite: Introduction to GIS TheoryRelated Tutorials: If you plan to use the SCC for your GIS needs, I recommend taking "Introduction to BU’s Shared Computing Cluster". SQL is a common language used in GIS to filter and retrieve data from databases and can be a useful skill to know. Please check out "Introduction to SQL" A commercial alternative is ArcGIS Pro, learn more by attending "Introduction to ArcGIS Pro"
