Workshop Visualizing and Analyzing Spatial Information with QGIS 2020

How can QGIS help to analyze and visualize spatial information?

This Spin-Off Workshop is an introduction to QGIS which is open source Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) software. QGIS allows users to analyze and visualize spatial information. During this training, participants will work with multiple types of data (vector and raster formats), use web services and create final maps. After this course, students will be able to find suitable satellite images for their area of interest, calculate vegetation indices, work with spectral bands combination to analyses vegetation conditions, water surface changes, land cover changes and so on. 

Instructor: Elizaveta Khazieva, Central European University

Elizaveta’s research interests are focused on remote sensing and GIS technologies application for a wide range of environmental issues such as land cover changes and agricultural monitoring. She has worked at Hexagon Geospatial, a leading global provider of information technologies and she was engaged with different projects related to enterprise GIS platforms development and remote sensing data analysis. She has experience in leading GIS projects in the Ministry of energy, Russian map agency, and the Moscow government.

Her current activity includes teaching a course at Moscow State University on using the Google Earth Engine platform for advanced remote sensing data analysis. She provides workshops and training on open-source software applications for various environmental issues within Environmental System Laboratory at CEU and American University of Central Asia. In addition, she participates in different projects related to spatial data analysis including cloud computing and machine learning.
