Transitioning to open source GIS

If you want to use the latest GIS software without incurring licence fees, join us on 5th and 12th October for our GQIS Essentials course. At just £550, it’s a cost-effective alternative to buying licences for proprietary software! There’s no need to install QGIS locally, we provide everything in the cloud, accessed via a browser. You’ll learn how to load vector data, use raster layers, style data, work with databases and create print layouts.

Using open source GIS to its full potential

Managing spatial data more effectively

If your spatial data needs to be managed more effectively, join our GeoServer Essentials course. This is delivered on four consecutive afternoons, starting on the 11th October. Using GeoServer will help you meet the requirements of the GeoSpatial Consortium (OGC) standards. The cost is £800.

GeoServer Advanced will help you add advanced vector & raster formats and serve rasters using a WCS. After this afternoon course on 23rd and 24th November, you should be able to add complex data (including MetOc – Meteorological and Oceanographic) and make use of the REST API to automate adding data and styles. You will also have a basic knowledge of how to add printing services to GeoServer. Delegates booking before the 12th of October can take advantage of the Early Bird rate of £360.

Automating your geoprocessing

Our Python Essentials course on 19th October will provide you with an introduction to thinking in a Pythonic way. You’ll cover the fundamentals of the language and be in good stead for the Python for QGIS course. Book before the 7th September for just £360.

Python for QGIS will provide you with a basic intro to the admin tasks required for a PostGIS database. You’ll also benefit from a step-by-step guide for PostgreSQL and PostGIS installation in the Windows environment. During the one-day course you will also explore user access (including remote connections) and how roles and role groups can be used to manage security on a PostgresSQL server. This course next runs on the 2nd November. An Early Bird offer of £360 is available until the 21st September.
