New QGIS Training Provider in Australia – Digital Mapping Solutions


If you are in Australia and are looking for some QGIS training Digital Mapping Solutions have just announced that they are now providing a  2 day Introduction to QGIS training course.

The course covers such things as:

  • User interface and basic tools
  • QGIS projects and preferences
  • Coordinate Reference Systems and On-The-Fly (OTF) projection
  • Map navigation and QGIS tools
  • Vector map objects: Adding, deleting & modifying
  • Attribute data: Field editing & modification
  • Layer manipulation
  • Digitizing
  • Styles and labelling
  • Object manipulation: Combine, split & buffer
  • Registering raster imagery
  • Creating layouts for printing

More details and a booking form for the course can be found at http://www.mapsolutions.com.au/training/quantum-gis/introduction-to-qgis.aspx

Training like this is great for QGIS popularity in Australia.  Working in local government I know how hard it can be to get IT to say yes to software unless there is formal training of some sort, and now thanks to DMS there is.

Enjoy :)
