Workshop Visualizing and Analyzing Spatial Information with QGIS 2020

Venue: Central European University, Budapest, Hungary

Date: June 27-28, 2020

Deadline for applications: 14 February 2020

How can QGIS help to analyze and visualize spatial information?

This training is an introduction to GIS and QGIS. QGIS is a free and open-source desktop geographic information system software that allows users to analyze and visualize spatial information. During this training, students will work with multiple types of data (vector and raster formats) and create final maps. After this course participants will be able to find suitable satellite images for their area of interest, visualize them in order to analyses vegetation conditions, water surface changes, land cover changes and so on.   

Instructor: Elizaveta Khazieva (CEU)

Elizaveta’s research interests are focused on remote sensing and GIS technologies application for a wide range of environmental issues such as land cover changes and agricultural monitoring. She has worked at Hexagon Geospatial, a leading global provider of information technologies and she was engaged with different projects related to enterprise GIS platforms development and remote sensing data analysis. She has experience in leading GIS projects in the Ministry of energy, Russian map agency, and the Moscow government.

Her current activity includes teaching a course at Moscow State University on using the Google Earth Engine platform for advanced remote sensing data analysis. She provides workshops and training on open-source software applications for various environmental issues within the Environmental System Laboratory at CEU and the American University of Central Asia. In addition, she participates in different projects related to spatial data analysis including cloud computing and machine learning.
