Langara College Open Source GIS Certificate Program using QGIS scheduled to start in January 2016

Rick Davidson-2
Hi Everyone,

I’m happy to announce that Langara College will be starting a new 5 course certificate program in Geographic Information Systems using QGIS and other FOSS software.

The courses are:

GISC 1001 - Intro to Geospatial Technology using QGIS

Explore the world of geographic information systems (GIS) with QGIS, an Open Source software program that offers a free, but powerful, alternative to commercial GIS programs. Topics include symbology, raster and vector data models, and map composition. The course also provides background theory of GIS concepts such as projections and geocoding.

GISC 1002 - Spatial Analysis using QGIS

Gain proficiency at using analysis techniques to solve problems that are commonly found in the GIS field. Practice exercises will include both vector and raster data models. These techniques are applicable to a wide range of disciplines.

GISC 1003 - Data Acquisition and Management using QGIS

Explore the world of geographic information systems (GIS) with QGIS, an Open Source software program that offers a free, but powerful, alternative to commercial GIS programs. Topics include symbology, raster and vector data models, and map composition. The course also provides background theory of GIS concepts such as projections and geocoding. This is a hands-on course, no programming required.

GISC 1004 - Intro to Cartography using QGIS

Explore fundamental concepts in cartography. Successful students will be able to employ design principles to create and edit effective visual representations of data in different formats. Specific topics include the ethical and appropriate application of map scale, map projections, generalization, and symbolization.

GISC 1005 - Intro to Remote Sensing using QGIS

Explore the world of remote sensing. Topics include the physical principles on which remote sensing is based, history and future trends, sensors and their characteristics, image data sources, and image classification, interpretation, and analysis techniques.

That is very cool. Boundlesd has given us the go ahead to speak to classes if they're is interest.

I would also be happy to meet a class with my OSGeo hat on.
