QGIS Desktop Basics

QGIS is a user-friendly open-source geographic information system (GIS). It runs on Linux, Mac OS and Windows and supports a wide range of vector, raster and database formats and functions. As a full-featured GIS, it can be used to create, visualize, analyze or edit spatial data. It is a powerful tool that can also be used to draw your own maps, among other things. This introduction will cover the basics of using it, handling vector and raster data, and visualizing it as a static map or dynamic WebMap.

Learning objectives
  • Participants know the key concepts of GIS as well as the basic operations to visualize, edit and process spatial data (vector and raster).
  • Participants know where they can find spatial data for their needs (file-based and WebServices).
  • Participants are able to produce different visualizations of their data.
  • Participant can draw their own maps and save them as static image file or publish them as dynamic WebMap.

Learning content:
  • Introduction to the open source GIS software QGIS, overview and possible applications.
  • Introduction to QGIS graphical user interface, key concepts (project settings, data management, coordinate reference systems, layers).
  • Geodata: Data formats, reference sources; creating and importing own data, linking table data as spatial attributes
  • Analyzing and editing vector data: working with attributes, processing tools, digitizing, topological editing
  • Display options, labeling, diagrams
  • Basics of working with raster data (georeferencing, working with digital elevation models, raster calculators, etc.)
  • Working with selected QGIS plugins
  • Creating and output of thematic and topographic maps with the layout manager, atlas function, export of interactive WebMaps
  • Self service resources




The course is suitable for students, academic lecturers and staff members in equal measure.
