Program Description
Have you wondered how Google is able to create the 3D models that you use everyday when searching for a place in Google Earth? Now you can do it yourself using QGIS. This program will teach you how to process LiDAR and orthophotos to create 3D scenes of Mount St. Helens and St. Andrews, Scotland.

You will learn how to install Quantum GIS (QGIS) with plugins, perform vector and raster analysis. I will walk you through each stage using step-by-step lectures and imagery. This program uses datasets based on real-life circumstances using open-source QGIS software. You will learn the history behind Geographic Information Systems and how open-source (free) GIS software can be leveraged to help solve real world issues.

This program has been designed from the ground up for Apple MacOS QGIS users.

The in-class-demos demonstrate how to enhance, analyze, raster and vector datasets using open source GIS software including:

  • QGIS,
  • Orfeo Toolbox,
  • Whitebox Tools,
  • Blender, and
  • Blender GIS plugin.

Note: More courses and in-class-demos will be added, including the updated, Ottawa, Gatineau, GPS Survey, Photo Story (Coming Soon).
What is included
The HPI, Geomatics Applied Learning Program includes,

  1. Humans for Peace Institution Edition (Datasets, Documents, MacOS Software, Video Demos and in-class-online training).

Students attending online classes will gain hands on training and support from an experienced GIS instructor using Zoom.

Each course has several in-class-demos.
