Webinar: Using open UK Data Service Census Support datasets in open source GIS software
26 April 2017
Online, 15.00 - 16.00
UK Data Service Census Support makes available to download a large number of geospatial datasets as open data. In recent years there has been a maturing of open source GIS software to the point of that software being able to offer a compelling alternative to traditional proprietary GIS software.
This free webinar will provide an introduction to the range of open geospatial data that is available for download through UK Data Service Census Support. Other sources of open geospatial data that can be combined with UK Data Service Census Support data will also be looked at. Through practical examples based around data-linkage, geographic visualisation and spatial analysis of UK census data, the webinar will explore the use of open source GIS software tools, predominantly the QGIS desktop GIS application, although an overview of the PostGIS spatial database will also be provided.
There will be time available at the end of the webinar for questions.
