Mapping 2: Manipulating and editing geographic data with QGIS
QGIS is a powerful tool for processing data for use by other mapping applications, including for web mapping. In this class you'll learn how to join tables of data to existing shapefiles and how to save data in formats commonly used for web mapping. You'll also learn how to edit geographic data, and how to process data consisting of hundreds or thousands of points to give a more meaningful summary display.
This session will be most helpful if: You completed the Mapping 1 class, or have some prior experience working with QGIS
