Rochester, NY /

Simplifying GIS for the non-Analysts

Riverwood Tech Campus 4545 East River Road , Rochester, NY (map)

Jose will walk you through the world of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and how Python is used to make them more accessible to users who have little to no experience using fully featured GIS clients. He will begin with an introduction of some telecommunications concepts for context and then dive right into an overview of QGIS—a popular open source GIS client—and demonstrate the custom tools he designed for it. He will then provide some source code “show and tell” for a few particular tools.

(parking and walking directions)

The meeting will be at the Innovative Solutions family room:

Use the main entrance off the parking lot.

NOTE: If you search for Innovative in Google Maps, it will try to send you to the wrong building.

The building is the last building in the complex and you will see a piece of artwork that is our new logo (pictured in the image above), just off the walk way into the office.
