Ina SAFE – Introduction to QGIS

QGIS is a user-friendly open source Geographic Information System (GIS). It runs on Linux, OS X, Windows and Android. QGIS supports numerous vector, raster, database formats and provide extendable functionality. Learn more about the project at: http://www.qgis.org

QGIS is great because:

  • It is completely free. It doesn’t cost anything.
  • It’s free, as in liberty. If you think a feature is missing, you can sponsor the development of a feature, or add it yourself if you are familiar with programming.
  • It’s constantly developing and improving. Because many people continue adding features, it keeps getting better.
  • Extensive help and documentation is available. If you have problems you can always turn to the software documentation, other QGIS users, or even the developers
