Goal for the summer: learn the basics of GIS (Geographic Information System). The end result will be a tutorial for Programming Historian, but I’ll post my stumbles and bumbles here. I’ll be using QGIS since it’s free and freely available. Below is the beginning of a list of resources/tutorials/introductions/etc.
- The GIS tutorials already up on Programming Historian: Installing QGIS 2.0 And Adding Layers; Creating New Vector Layers in QGIS 2.0; Georeferencing in QGIS 2.0
- The tutorials on Fred Gibbs’ website: Using Historic Maps with QGIS; Linking and Styling Data with QGIS; Making a Map with QGIS (the last has a number of links to resources, including QGIStutorials.net)
