In this workshop you will learn about using GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and geodata in your research. We will look into how you can find and/or create geodata and how you can analyse and visualise this data in QGIS.

In preparation of the workshop, you need to install QGIS on your computer. Software and installation instructions can be found here. QGIS is open source software and is therefore free to download and use. If you already have a data set you want to work with, i.e. a list of place names or a downloaded data set with coordinates, please bring this with you to the workshop.

No previous experience is required.

If requested, the course will be given in English.
