Introduction to GIS Worksheets


Pengenalan kepada GIS worksheets

Hari ini, saya tertiba di laman ini. Ianya khas untuk guru dan pelajar GIS seperti saya dan merupakan maklumat yang amat baik lalu dikongsi bersama sini. 'About' menyatakan "This project was sponsored by the Chief Directorate: Spatial Planning & Information, Department of Land Affairs, Eastern Cape, South Africa (DLA)." Pengunting Utama dan Pengarang Utama lain tak lain adalah Tim Sutton dan Penolong Pengarang adalah Otto Dassau. Marcelle Sutton (Rasa-rasa bini kawan tu) adalah Pengurus Projek, maka, ni semua kerja satu keluarga. Worksheet-worksheet merangkumi:
  1. Introduction to GIS
  2. Vector Data
  3. Attribute Data
  4. Digitising Vector Data
  5. Raster Data
  6. Topology
  7. Coordinate Reference System
  8. Map Projection
  9. Spatial Analysis: Vector Data
  10. Spatial Analysis: Raster Data
  • QGIS User Guide
  • All worksheets in a single document
  • Sample data used with tutorials

Elok dimuat turun saja dan cetak fail pdf dari All worksheets in a single documents bertajuk 'A Gentle Introduction to GIS' ( Saya pasti akan). Dokumen menyatakan "Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU Free Documentation License". Ianya merangkumi Worksheet 1-10, sejumlah 101 muka tidak termasuk 13 muka dibelakang. Mantap dan terperinci, rujukan ini sukar usang kalau tanya saya dan amat sesuai bagi pengguna QGIS kerana ianya merujuk pada QGIS sebagai alat GIS. Setalah membaca 'A word from the editor', saya tabik mereka di Afrika Selatan.

Introduction to GIS worksheets

Today, I ended up at this site by accident. It is for teachers and learners in GIS like me and I believe I have struck gold and it is here for all to share. 'About' states that "This project was sponsored by the Chief Directorate: Spatial Planning & Information, Department of Land Affairs, Eastern Cape, South Africa (DLA)." The Editor and Chief Author is none other than Tim Sutton and Assistant Author is Otto Dassau. Marcelle Sutton (I assume it she relates to someone familiar) is Project Manager so it's all one big family. The worksheets cover:
  1. Introduction to GIS
  2. Vector Data
  3. Attribute Data
  4. Digitising Vector Data
  5. Raster Data
  6. Topology
  7. Coordinate Reference System
  8. Map Projection
  9. Spatial Analysis: Vector Data
  10. Spatial Analysis: Raster Data
  • QGIS User Guide
  • All worksheets in a single document
  • Sample data used with tutorials

Do yourself a favour, just download and print the pdf file from All worksheets in a single documents called 'A Gentle Introduction to GIS' ( I definitely will). The document states that "Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU Free Documentation License". It covers Worksheet 1-10, a total of 101 pages less the extras 13 pages at the back. Real solid and detail, a real reference timeless standard if you ask me best suited for QGIS users because it makes reference to QGIS as the GIS tool. I take my songkok (hat) off to you guys at South Africa after reading 'A word from the editor'.
