GIS Training

Goal of GIS training and content:

The aim of the training is to get to know the basics of geographic information systems and to get familiar with different data formats. Basic GIS concepts, the importance of geodatabases, the creation of simple maps, the analysis of spatial information and processes as well as the editing of geodata are taught to the participants. In addition, well-known open source programs will be introduced and deepened using the example of QGIS (formerly Quantum-GIS). Here, the operation of surfaces and the integration and editing of vector and raster data is practiced.
