First in several years a workshop on geo-information technology and spatial analysis, ‘Intro to GIS’, was held in Terney on 15-21 April 2018. Participants spent 7 days working with free software QGIS. To make learning efficient, every participant analyzed their own data.
Participants included professionals from various protected areas of Russian Far East as well as students of Far Eastern Federal University.
The workshop aimed for beginners as well as advanced users willing to learn new software, new methods and tools of spatial analysis.
During the workshop, participants learned how to work with vector and raster data, create and analyze maps. At the last day, everyone presented an analysis of their own spatial data as a final project of the workshop.
