GIS is not just a program; it’s a way of thinking. Free, open-source GIS tools allow designers to conduct rigorous analysis, model spatial phenomena, and easily communicate complex spatial relationships. In this session, learn how to use open-source GIS tools and integrate them into the design process at all scales.
Develop familiarity with open-source GIS tools.
Understand GIS capabilities and how they can be integrated into the design process.
Learn about open data sources and spatial data formats.
Hands-on practice manipulating and processing spatial data for context and site analysis.
Hands-on practice using open-source GIS tools to develop presentation graphics.
Learn how open-source GIS can be used with other technologies to develop site-scale datasets and analysis products.
