The ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub has scheduled three additional workshops for December.
As your year winds down, get some additional GIS training to prepare you for 2018 and perhaps ideas for new projects.
Working with Digital Elevation Models (Using QGIS) – Tuesday December 5, 6:00 p.m.
Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop on working with digital elevation model (DEM) data in a free, open source geographic information system (GIS).
This hands-on workshop will describe the structure of raster elevation surfaces; identify good, free sources of DEM data at multiple spatial resolutions; and do some common processing and 2D/3D visualization of these data for basic topographic and related analyses. Register and more info.
Intro to Open Source GIS (Using QGIS) – Monday December 11, 6:00 p.m.
Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this two-hour workshop introducing geographic information system (GIS) technology with open source software.
We'll be using QGIS, a powerful, easy-to-use, free and open source software (FOSS) platform. Register and more info.
CANCELED - Watch for this workshop to be offered Spring 2018:
Accessing Digital Topo Maps for GIS – Thursday December 14, 6:00 p.m.
Join the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub for this one-hour workshop on how to access historical (and contemporary) topographic maps going as far back as 1884.
Participants will learn about the various web platforms used for hosting and distributing free topographic maps available in various formats. Workshop attendees will then learn how to import and use the scanned map images in a GIS software platform with other types of GIS layers.
