|ESSC offers basic Geomatics Training Course|
|Wednesday, 14 April 2010|
ESSC is offering a short introductory course for geomatics students, practitioners, and developers using free and open source software geospatial (FOSS-Geo) technologies.
ESSC seeks to share its experience and techniques in its geomatics work using various geospatial technologies (both FOSS and proprietary software products).FOSS technology is gaining popular usage due to the high costs of proprietary geospatial products. This is also ESSC's contribution to expanding the adoption of FOSS and democratizing the access of software.
Each course is designed as an introduction to several FOSS-Geo technologies and there are practical exercises for participants to accomplish. By the end of each course, participants should be able to install, navigate the basic interface of each application, and produce map products in paper or digital format. The course will run for a day for a minimum fee of PhP 1,500.00. The only requirement is a working portable computer that can accommodate loading of the software applications.
List of Courses and Schedule
This training/workshop is designed to introduce participants to Quantum GIS as an easy to use FOSS-Geo application. This one-day training workshop focuses on the basic interface and data exploration tools of QGIS.
Quantum GIS (QGIS) is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) that runs on several operating systems (Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows). QGIS supports vector, raster, and database formats.
