This practical course is designed to introduce spatial professionals to the Quantum GIS desktop application and provide them with skills to add value to their existing GIS toolkit.
Attendees will learn techniques that will allow them to enhance their everyday desktop mapping capabilities and implement advanced features such as SQL2008 compatibility.
As a hands-on course, the attendees can actively participate and experience real-world examples. It is a great opportunity to explore the possibilities that QGIS offers.
