QGIS 3.10 LTR for GIS Professionals available now.

This course is an update of my course QGIS 3.0 for GIS Professionals.  Those of you who have already registered for this course will have access to the updated materials immediately.  As the most recent Long Term Release, QGIS 3.10 LTR is much more stable and well developed than the beta version of QGIS 3.0 that I used to develop the original course.

Please not that this is not a beginner level introduction to QGIS.  I assume that you have some familiarity with GIS concepts but are interested in learning how to apply those with QGIS.  Also, please note that this course has 12 hours of video content. Please consider that when comparing to other QGIS courses available on Udemy.com

This course as well as my QGIS courses are available until May 22 for $9.99 (USD, May be less in other countries) using the links below.

The good news is that there are not a lot of major changes to the original course.  This in general is an advantage of open-source software. The changes tend to be incremental, not monumental with most of the changes focused on improving functionality rather than re-inventing the wheel with lots of new bells and whistles.

There are some lectures with minor changes that may have been as simple as the addition of a text box pointing out something that has changed in QGIS 3.10 LTR. I also added some additional new material and updated a few entire lectures in cases where there were major changes.

Major changes include:

  • New Lecture 30: Working with attribute forms and validation
  • New Section 8: Joins and relates
  • New Lecture 51: About joins and relates
  • New Lecture 52: Attribute Joins
  • New Lecture 53: Relates

New Course: Survey of python for GIS applications

Thanks for your interest in my new course on Python for GIS applications. This course is intended to provide a broad overview of the python programming language and the python ecosystem, especially for geospatial applications. The goal is to provide you with an understanding of how all the pieces work together and provide a starting point from which you can explore specific packages on your own.
