Finally, dig into QGIS with an example workflow showing off standard GIS functionality as well as a few features that make QGIS special.

About the Speaker:

Erik Friesen:

Erik is a Training Specialist with Boundless (soon to be Planet Federal). He has worked with GIS and remote sensing technology for the past 13 years. Prior to joining Boundless, he spent 8 years as the sole GIS Technician/Analyst at a small oil and gas company. He earned a B.S. in Geoscience and graduate certificates in GIS and remote sensing at the University of Texas at Dallas. In his spare time, Erik enjoys tinkering with electronics, brewing beer, and back country camping.

Boundless helps reduce the cost and time of deploying and managing geospatial software with a scalable, open GIS platform – including Server, Exchange, Desktop and Connect – and a powerful ecosystem of geospatial knowledge, tools and resources.
