Program Introduction

The GIS industry has been expanding worldwide lately. The tools required and applied within the field are becoming increasingly complex. Thus, the demand for professionals with advanced GIS skills and knowledge has been growing in response.

This workshop explores advanced topics in QGIS, Grass GIS, and geospatial technology. The core focus is on spatial data analysis and visualization techniques. Participants will dive deeper into vector and raster data models, learn how to handle and store them in a geodatabase, and produce high-quality cartographic products and maps.

If you are looking for advanced hands-on experience with geospatial analysis, this workshop is an ideal suit for your needs.
