About This Class

Do you want to improve your GIS skills with free open source software tools?

Do you want to get ready for your next GIS job in the geospatial industry?

You are here because you want to learn geographic information systems with open source tools, right?

 I am so excited to have you here!

You may have some prior experience in GIS or are just getting started. 

In this course, I will help you to get started your geospatial learning journey by walking you through practical exercises using open source software tools.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

I am Dr. Alemayehu Midekisa, PhD and I am lecturer and research scientist at the University of California. I have over 10 years of experience in the geospatial industry. I am also the recipient of one the prestigious NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship. I teach over 10,000 students online.

In this Introduction to GIS: Spatial Data Analysis with QGIS course, I will help you get up and running a QGIS software. By the end of this course, you will not only master the theoretical concepts of s geographic information systems, but also most importantly equipped with a set of new GIS skills including accessing, processing, analyzing, visualizing and sharing spatial data.

One of the common problems with learning GIS is the high cost of software. In this course, I entirely use open source free software. Additionally, I will walk you through a step by step video tutorials to handle a GIS data in QGIS platform. All sample data will be provided to you as an added bonus through out the course.
