Geospatial Fundamentals with QGIS: Parts 1-2

February 1, 2022, 3:00pm to February 3, 2022, 6:00pm

Location: Remote via Zoom. Link will be sent on the morning of the event.

This workshop is a 2-part series running from 3pm-6pm each day:

  • Part 1: Tuesday, February 1
  • Part 2: Thursday, February 3

Start Time: D-Lab workshops start 10 minutes after the scheduled start time (“Berkeley Time”). We will admit all participants from the waiting room at that time.


This workshop will introduce methods for working with geospatial data in QGIS, a popular open-source desktop GIS program that runs on both PCs and Macs as well as linux computers. Participants will learn how to load, query and visualize point, line and polygon data. We will also introduce basic methods for processing spatial data, which are the building blocks of spatial analysis workflows. Coordinate reference systems and map projections will also be introduced.

Prerequisites: None
