OPEN SOURCE DESKTOP GIS EXERCISE HANDBOOK
INITIAL OUTLINE

Note: Our goal is to have a standard set of the same exercises (and data) available for the OSGeo desktop GIS platforms. Let's get the outline and then we can work on a standard structure for the exercises.

Proposed exercise topics (others, please add new exercise entries and/or other desktop platforms)

  • Introduction to the desktop platform (Schweik has an exercise we can use - using QGIS)
    • GRASS
    • gvSIG
    • MapWindow
