Resources for the Peace Tech Lab QGIS demonstration


In this workshop you will acquire a basic GIS skill-set  by creating a map of Baltimore visualize the Index of Dissimilarity.  This workshop uses QGIS.  QGIS is the most popular open-source GIS software, and is interoperable with a wide range of data and GIS resources.  

QGIS does not have a dedicated technical support team, but does have a large user-community that provides extensive instruction and support.  QGIS is a very good option for non-profits or others on a budget.  


This workshop is being offered in collaboration between Peace Tech Lab and Morgan State University, Baltimore, MD.
