MANSFIELD, Ohio — Learn the ABCs of using QGIS — in this case, to map tree cover, land use, water quality and similar data — in an Aug. 17 workshop in Mansfield.
QGIS is a free and open-source geographic information system, or GIS. It works on operating systems including Mac OS X, Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows.
The workshop is for anyone who studies or works with natural resources, including forests, farmland, watersheds and wildlife, said Kathy Smith, coordinator of the event’s sponsor, the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program.
