    Who Can Benefit From This

    Step-by-Step Follow-Along Video GIS Training Course

    Whether you are a Student, Scientist, or Trade Professional...

    This course was designed to help you go from a complete and total beginner having never built a GIS map, to doing your own desktop GIS project in just 7 days.

    For those who are time-poor or who prefer to learn at a slower pace the course will take longer than 7 days. That's not a problem! Take as long or as little as you like, the choice is YOURS.

    MODULE #1 - Introduction to Quantum GIS

    In these first videos I take you through step-by-step from launching Quantum GIS to how to do a basic interpretation of a GIS map. From the very beginning I start teaching you how to think like a GIS analyst

    You will learn…

    • How to open, navigate and interpret maps and air photos in any GIS
    • How to use visual clues such as block size, watercourse shape, location, condition and even vegetation type and condition to reveal all sorts of valuable information about soils and other themes
    • How to use Project Files to recreate screen environments from days, months and even years ago
    • Plus, step-by-step follow-along videos of me showing you each step on-screen

    MODULE #2 – Dangerous Traps With Maps

    Next, we cover the 5 most common Traps With Maps, and how to avoid each of them. Even many seasoned GIS professionals overlook these.

    You will learn…

    • How to avoid common newbie mistakes with coordinate systems, map scales, map sources and map creation methodologies.
    • 3 ways to combine data sets from ANY source into a single map
    • Why desktop GISs are far more powerful than Google Maps
    • Two notorious pitfalls to avoid when populating data tables

    MODULE #3 – How to Shade a Map Using Numerical Data

    Environmentalists and Agriculturalists: 

    Temperature zones, Rainfall zones, Plant indices, etc


    Disease Rates, etc


    Socio-economic indices, GDP per capita, Housing affordability, etc


    Socio-economic studies, Census Maps of Employment, Age, Education, etc

    Its easy to create a shaded map using numerical data, but many people fail to think through the maps they create. In this module you'll learn how to create a Shaded Map of Numerical Data using Census Data.

    You will learn...

    • The 11 Step process for creating a shaded map.
    • How to select a color scheme for ANY type of shaded map you create
    • How to look for patterns in graphs of numerical data so that you can create meaningful legend categories
    • How to query sub-sets of your data
    • How to validate the accuracy of census (and other) maps
    • How to devise legend category class widths that will work for every map in your project
    • Plus, step-by-step videos of me showing you each step on-screen

    MODULE #4 – How to Convert a Paper Maps into a GIS Map

    Often, old paper maps are still valuable. In this module I show you how to reinterpret old paper maps by relating them to newer, better quality complimentary GIS maps.

    You will learn…

    • How to convert any Paper Map into a GIS Map in 7 Easy Steps (digitizing)
    • Tricks for validating the quality of your new GIS map
    • 5 ways to reinterpret old environmental maps
    • The role of base maps in a map reinterpretation and how to create basemaps…step-by-step
    • How to engage old-timer environmentalists in your GIS project without intimidating them.
    • Two types of environmental maps that are usually inaccurate and why
    • My best secrets to finding “hidden gems” in old maps
    • Plus, step-by-step follow-along videos of me showing you each step on-screen

    MODULE #5 – How to turn an Address in a Spreadsheet to a Point on a GIS Map (Geocoding)

    Few people have success geocoding their data…that’s because they haven’t been shown the tricks I show you in this module!

    You will learn…

    • How to convert your spreadsheet of addresses into a GIS map of address points.
    • Three must-have geocoding plugins
    • How understanding and harnessing “mental maps” can drastically improve your geocoding hit rate.
    • How to export your spreadsheet so that the QGIS geocoder recognizes it
    • How to geocode to a Street Map, an Address Point map, Google Maps and OpenStreetMaps.
    • Plus, Step-by-Step Follow-Along videos of me showing you each step on-screen

    MODULE #6 – Buffers and Spatial Querying

    Often, GIS projects must incorporate buffers around water features, wildlife habitats, urban areas, etc. When buffers get related to other geographical features such as Land Ownership they become really useful to decision makers.

    You will learn…

    • How to create a GIS buffer
    • How to create geographical subsets and then query them
    • The secret to combining database query with geographical query and why it so important
    • How to compare two GIS maps (using all 14 possible geographical variations)
    • Plus, Step-by-Step Follow-Along videos of me showing you each step on-screen

    MODULE #7 – Project Presentation and Delivery

    Maps are a communication tool. Poorly presented GIS Maps can be overlooked by your peers, publishers and by decision makers! Presentation is not just about how your map looks, but also the way you organize and describe your project so that others (including you years down-the-track) can easily pick up where you left off.

    You will learn…

    • How to frame a map, add a scale bar, a north arrow, align map components, etc
    • 11 cartographic elements fully revealed and explained
    • The value of understanding a map’s “narrative” and how this understanding can change your presentation
    • How to organize your project data so that others can easily reproduce and modify it as needed.
    • My best secrets to finding “hidden gems” in old maps
    • The key to making maps simple for others to understand
    • Plus, Step-by-Step Follow-Along videos of me showing you each step on-screen
