Mapping Data with QGIS 5: Perform Spatial Queries

Mapping Data with QGIS 5: Perform Spatial Queries

The real power of GIS is that it allows us to interrogate spatial data in new and interesting ways. We can explore the spatial relationship between two different datasets, select subsets of data based on spatial location, and generate new findings in the process. This workshop is geared toward intermediate users who already have a basic understanding of GIS but are looking to practice running spatial queries. SKILLS ACQUIRED: Attendees will learn about different types of overlay and connectivity queries, install plugins in QGIS to perform spatial analyses, and practice querying spatial data in different ways.
