Data Visualization with QGIS
Friday, December 11, 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EDT
Category: Workshops

Description: This workshop will be an introduction to the wide range of data visualization and cartographic options now available in QGIS 3.x. QGIS has seen remarkable growth in this area in recent years. You will learn tools and techniques unique to QGIS such as: use of inverted polygon shapeburst fills, geometry generator symbol layers, expression based symbology, blending modes and live layer effects. We will also work with animating temporal data and mesh data. If you want to take your map creation skills to the next level - this is the perfect workshop for you!
