Since QGIS is free, the essential investment lies in training. The overall cost is therefore substantially lower than for commercial products, many of which restrict the number of licenses and impose additional costs for specific tools. Furthermore, the commitment of its development team (120+) suggests that the software will continue to grow on the long run. As for commercial GIS, a formal training provided by an expert reduces the learning curve, and allows for better assessing the possibilities of QGIS.

The course comprises a series of presentations/lectures, computer-based practical (hands-on), discussion and Q&A sessions using QGIS software with several of datasets The modules of this training include: QGIS user interface, spatial data management, image geo-referencing, spatial analysis, data presentation, reporting and producing maps.
The course comprises a series of presentations/lectures, computer-based practical (hands-on), discussion and Q&A sessions using QGIS software. The modules in this training include: database concepts, spatial database, data interoperability, geo-processing, and some plugin extensions available in QGIS.
This course introduces participants to create more advanced SQL queries, understand the importance of spatial indexing, manipulated geometry within the database and more functions in QGIS. Presentation, demonstration, hand-on, discussion and Q&A sessions will also available for a better learning process in this course.
