Using FREE GIS Tools for Watershed Management


Aired: May 14, 2014 from noon to 1pm Eastern

Want to make a map now and then but can not afford a dedicated desktop GIS license? My webinar will introduce the concept of Open Source GIS software, and in particular will discuss QGIS, a full-featured and easy-to-use GIS program that runs on Macintosh, Windows, Linux, and Android. It can use many data types, has an easy shapefile editor, contains standard Geoprocessing tools like clip, buffer, union, intersect and can do raster processing such as slope, hillshade, and delineation. QGIS is free, and actively being supported by a community of users.
