*QGIS Workshop (Basic) on 19 Jan 2020 (Ahmedabad)*
*1. Hands on GPS Field Exercise with Nature Trail Walk (Marking Waypoints,
Routes and Areas)*
In this session you will learn basic GPS system and its
functioning through GPS instruments and mobile apps with our nature field
experts. This will be the unique kind of field experience where you will
collect the groundtruthing data and simultaneously observe nature and its
species, which will give you exercise for your future field work in forest
and other areas.
*2. Cartography Skills and Map Reading*
Under this exercise, you will get a chance to experience hands on map for
your field exercise and understanding of cartography and map reading
elements to *understand the importance of map* in your field practice.
*3. Basic Digitization Tools (QGIS)*
This important tool will take you to the digitization level where you will
be working with satellite images/toposheet to mark your region of interest
(Point-Line-Polygon) using different QGIS tools to draw your surrounding
entities into map. This tool will help you to develop a hands on software
for smooth functioning and understanding of GIS Drawing.
*4. Satellite Image Interpretation & Geo-rectification and much more…*
In any remote sensing study visual image interpretation is a must know tool
to identify earth surface features with its wavelengths. It enables you to
see the unseen and unidentified feature to command the software for more
image processing and exact ground scenario from the different satellite
imageries. Also, geo-rectification is an important tool when you are
converting aerial photo/image to geo-coordinate system.
