Learning Outcomes

This is an introductory workshop focusing on the fundamental concepts and skills needed to begin using QGIS to explore and analyze spatial data. The result of this project will be a choropleth map showing the number of Douglas Firs lining the streets in each of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods. We will compose and export this map for print. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • understand different types of geospatial data
  • navigate the QGIS 3.22.7 interface
  • browse files and add data to a QGIS project
  • query data from the attribute table
  • create a new shapefile
  • edit the symbolization of spatial data
  • compose a map document for export
