Introduction to mapping: Importing and displaying data geographically with QGIS
QGIS is the leading free, open source Geographic Information System (GIS) program. You'll learn how to use QGIS to make a simple thematic map, with areas colored according to data, plus a map of points scaled according to values in the data, how to set their map projections, and how to export them as a vector graphic.
No prior experience of GIS/mapping required.
