Mapping Data with QGIS 2: Find (and Create) Geospatial Data

This workshop is aimed at GIS beginners who are excited to start playing around with real geospatial data. We will browse through some of the best websites to find GIS data and cover important concepts in data management, including how to create new datasets, convert between formats, and organize files. SKILLS GAINED: Attendees will find and download a GIS dataset from a government source, generate a new shapefile in different ways, convert between vectors and rasters, and practice renaming files.
