Introduction to QGIS (Silent Disco): Installing software and working with vectorial data

Silent Disco Mashup


Our 'Silent Disco' workshops are based on tutorials from the Programming Historian website. This training event will follow content from 2 tutorials, ‘Installing QGIS 2.0 and Adding Layers’ and ‘Creating New Vector Layers in QGIS 2.0’. This is an asynchronous event on Microsoft Teams: when taking part, you will work through the tutorial at your own pace with an instructor available online to help you with any issues. 

Participants will meet for a brief introduction to QGIS, and will then work on installing and becoming familiar with the interface and core concepts at their own pace. The facilitator will be available via Teams Chat to reply to any questions that arise during the workshop, and to help with installation, troubleshooting or other issues. Participants will reconvene at 16:00 to briefly reflect on what has been learned, and how QGIS skills learned can be built upon and expanded with additional skills. 

This is a beginner level workshop. No previous knowledge on the topic is required/expected and the trainer will cover the basics of the method. 

Those who have registered to take part will receive an email with full details and a link to join the session in advance of the start time. 

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
