Geographic Information Systems

  • Tutorials for doing cartography in the software QGIS (although the software GRASS GIS is a part of one of the tutorials as well). Cartography refers to the making of publication-ready maps based upon GIS layers. QGIS is another open-source GIS software solution. It uses GRASS GIS under the hood to perform some of its routines, so GRASS GIS is still the most powerful open-source option. But QGIS is much better for cartography, which is why I switch to this software for the cartography tutorials.
