Once again the Columbia Mountain Institute is hosting the Introduction to QGIS course. This course was held in Revelstoke in 2017 and in Cranbrook in the spring of 2018. This year the course will be again be held in Revelstoke on May 3, 2019. It will be announced on the CMI website (http://cmiae.org/) shortly.
The course shows participants how easy it is to use the QGIS program by having them import data, analyze data and produce maps. The following is an excerpt from their website:
The free, open source QGIS program is used and supported by a world-wide array of developers. Learn how to use this program to produce maps from public databases and your own knowledge. In a hands-on environment, on their own computers, students will create basic maps, add lines, shapes, overlay images, create contours, add labels and produce high quality maps for print or digital presentation.
The course can also be taken on-line, direct from Opus Petroleum Engineering Ltd. Contact us at http://www.opuspetroleum.com/index.html for more information.
