Hands-on QGIS Workshop materials

As part of GIS Day 2014 (see http://gis.lacounty.gov/gisday), John Hickock from our Public Works Department developed a brief training for our 2014 GIS Day event, which will give you an introduction to QGIS and some data resources to get started.

He has made the links and resources available, so we are publishing that information.  Click here to go to the page.

Everyone, it was indeed a pleasure to see all of you attend our Open Source GIS hands-on workshop. Attached is a digital PDF version of the materials we went over. Once you begin the path of learning open source GIS, you will find the abundance of freely available information a little staggering. It was hoped that today’s exercises were a helpful cross section of things to learn.

For your convenience, I’ll copy and paste the resources from the last page for easier web browsing out of this email.
