Please bring along your own laptop with QGIS 2.8 installed.

Workshop A: Analysis with QGIS Processing

In this workshop, the QGIS processing (analysis) framework will be introduced. The toolbox allows to execute algorithms from external open source GIS software like GRASS, SAGA or others. In addition, the graphical modeler will be shown and practiced. This component allows to automate certain work steps and apply the workflows to different data sets.

Workshop-Instructor: Andreas Neumann (City of Uster)

Workshop B: Digitizing, Constructing and Quality Assurance

The different digitizing and construction tool, as well as the available snapping modes will be introduced and practiced. Additional Python plugins like "digitizing tools and CAD Input" will be shown. Finally, different tools to check data quality will be introduced.

Workshop-Instructors: Bernhard Ströbl (City of Jena)
