"It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living." - David Attenborough
The natural formations that are visible when we analyze geographical data are beautiful and would go to waste if not seen by more people. This workshop is meant to equip the participants with the knowledge and skills to extract the beauty of nature out of geographical data using QGIS.
We will start by briefly going over some of the fundamentals of GIS, what it is, what it is used for, and some of the fundamental concepts and terms. Then, we shall go over the software we are working with (QGIS), how to use the interface and what tools are available to us. And then we'll put it to use! We'll use QGIS to extract some form of natural formation, such as animal richness in an area, soil type distribution, or slope levels. These can in turn put to use in other projects, to make cool visualizations for on clothing, or a wall-mounted piece that is laser cut or CNC milled.
