#maptimeDavis: ArcPro and QGIS side by side overview
February 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This fast-paced workshop will look at two desktop GIS software options, ArcPro and QGIS, side-by-side.
Please RSVP via our Registration Link
This fast-paced workshop will look at two desktop GIS software options, ArcPro and QGIS, side-by-side. The emphasis is showing where major tasks can be accomplished in each software package. Time permitting, we will walk through opening a project; adding a dataset; creating and editing features and fields; symbolizing the dataset; and creating a map layout.
Participants will feel more comfortable opening up and using both QGIS and ArcPro, and gain vocabulary to explore further on their own.
Concepts Covered: Desktop GIS, Graphical User Interface GIS, Cartography, Data Visualization, Features, Attributes, Spatial Data
Speaker: Naomi Kalman
Naomi Kalman is a GIS specialist with 20 years of experience analyzing, managing, and visualizing spatial data. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Geology from UC Davis and a Master’s in Data Analytics from Western Governors University. A Davis resident and former UCD employee, she now owns her own company, Valley Spatial.
Location: Seminar Room (room 1025) in the UC Davis PSEL (Physical Sciences & Engineering Library). Zoom details will be emailed upon registration for people wishing to attend online.
Prerequisites: A working knowledge of one or the other software (QGIS or ArcPro) is helpful but not required, as is an understanding of GIS and spatial data concepts.
Software: If you wish to work along (optional), please have QGIS version 3.24 or higher installed, as well as ArcPro 3.0 or higher. Please check your software license connection for ArcPro (free for UCD students, staff and affiliates).
