- FREE eBook: 63 pages of screen captures and explanatory text to compliment the videos
- Captions created from lesson transcripts.
- 3+ hours of step-by-step follow-along QGIS tutorial videos of me showing you each step on-screen: In the videos I show you how to navigate Quantum GIS, create a shaded Thematic Map, create time-series Thematic Maps, and how to think like a Geospatial analyst.
- A zip file of the QGIS datasets I use in the videos: Extract these and follow-along with me in the videos.
- You get to eavesdrop as I work: And gain insight into Thematic Mapping in QGIS. These are insights that only experienced Geospatial analysts have. Insights you would otherwise likely overlook or possibly never grasp.
For the past 24 years I’ve been a GIS researcher teacher and consultant. Over 5000 students have enrolled in my Udemy GIS courses alone. Here’s what some of my students say about my teaching style…
Caesar says: It was a very good class, just what I needed to get familiar with QGIS.
Carina says: “Perfect course to whom have never used…QGIS! Very detailed on the explanations and really generous additional materials to study.”
Brian says: "It was very thorough and comprehensive… Ian also covered aspects of GIS Analysis - which increases your learning and appreciation of the capabilities of how powerful the GIS tool can be"
Umar says: "Ian is vast and knowledgeable in what he teaches. I would do another course by Ian if he offered it"
Nathan says: "Really great introductory-level course! The examples were simple to follow, but also very useful. All the work can be finished while watching the videos, there was no extra work to be done without guidance. I really look forward to the next course by this instructor. - Cheers and well done!"
Boojhawon says: "Simple and very clear lectures with the minimum basics/backgrounds to get a taste of what awaits us further and also making us think of what we can do more."
Srijon says: “I have experience in using ArcGIS. I needed the QGIS taste for which I took this. If anybody who has little experience in GIS will love the 'Techniques and Tips' parts, which are very clearly and elaborately described, which will greatly help to be a GIS interpreter. And I love the line "Don't just be a tourist." It should be the tricky line between a GIS analyst and a technician. The course will help me in my future works.”
Frequently Asked Questions
English is not my native language. Does this QGIS tutorial have captions?
Yes. High quality ones too. Almost all the videos have captions that are generated from transcriptions (unlike other Udemy captions that are auto-generated).
Your QGIS tutorial does not use ARC. Does this matter?
No, it doesn’t matter. I teach you the basics of GIS mapping in a way that’s applicable to ALL GISs, even Arc.
I have no experience with QGIS. Does that matter?
No previous Geographical Information Systems knowledge needed
What Work Materials are there to support the QGIS tutorial?
A 63 page Text with screen captures and explanations to compliment the videos, and a zip file containing the same datasets I use in the videos.
Do I need to purchase software to do this QGIS tutorial?
No, there is no need to purchase software. We’ll use the FREE Quantum GIS. I show you how to download and install this
I want to buy this QGIS tutorial today, but I don’t have time to do the course right now. How long do I have access to the course for?
You have Unlimited Lifetime Access to the course (including future upgrades)
What if I decide this QGIS tutorial is not for me.
I offer an unconditional, no-questions-asked full 30-day money-back guarantee!
If I have a problem, can I ask questions?
Yes. I welcome questions. I enjoy helping my students. Questions also help me improve the QGIS tutorial. Its best to use the Q&A area for this.
I am worried that this QGIS tutorial will be like many other technical courses - abstract and hard to follow.
All exercises are deliberately based on the type of practical every-day GIS problems that I encounter day-to-day in my GIS consultancy. All my GIS for Beginners QGIS tutorials use datasets covering the same area – Yarmouth in Massachusetts. That means that from QGIS tutorial to QGIS tutorial you get to understand that the value and usefulness of maps over an area increases as more maps are added. Download the dataset and follow-along with the videos.
My courses are backed by an iron clad 100% money back guarantee for 30 days.
If for any reason you decide they are not right for you, just choose the refund option from your UDEMY student dashboard for an instant no-hassle refund.
