GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. This training will present a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) to produce topographical maps using QGIS
The five days training is aimed at helping development partners toproduce topographical maps using QGIS. The use of GIS in topographic map production improves the effectiveness and communications of results to management, funding partners and beneficiaries. Presenting data in the form of a map helps to understand the significance of where, when, and by whom.
