· Do you find GIS & Spatial Data books & manuals too vague, expensive & not practical

· Are you looking for a course that takes you by hand, teaches you all the concepts, and get you started on working with actual spatial data?

· Or perhaps you want to save time and learn how to carry the most common GIS tasks?

I'm very excited you found my spatial data analysis course. My course provides a foundation to carry out PRACTICAL, real-life spatial data analysis tasks in popular and FREE software framework, QGIS.

I’m Minerva Singh, and I’m an expert data scientist. I’ve graduated from 2 of the best universities in the world; MPhil from Oxford University (Geography and Environment), and a PhD holder in Computational Ecology from Cambridge University.

My course aims to help you become proficient in the use of QGIS and carrying out common GIS tasks on real-life data like me.

With this course, you’ll get familiar with all that’s required to move you from a basic level to carrying out some of the most important GIS analysis on real-life spatial data.

You’ll be introduced to some of the important GIS concepts and how they can be implemented on real-life data using QGIS. This includes working with both raster and shapefile data and carrying out important GIS tasks like deriving topographic products and spatial cluster mapping

That’s why this course is centred on training you on how to effectively implement the different spatial data analysis techniques on real-life data, including working with the Google Earth Engine (GEE) plugin and the powerful System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses (SAGA) processing toolbox.

Each video will teach you a practical GIS skill to implement on your own data.

If you take this course and it ever feels like a disappointment, feel free to ask for a refund within 30 days of your purchase, and you would get it at once.

Become an expert in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) using the freeware QGIS by taking up this course today!

Este curso ha sido muy bueno, me ha ayudado a comprender más el funcionamiento de las herramientas de QGIS. Mi desarrollo profesional se ha visto incrementado. ¡¡¡Gracias!!!

Tomas10 June 2021

The course gives some good tips about Qgis, specially for managing fire with satellite. The GEE part requires some python knowlegde

I enjoyed the course very much. I believe this course has a lot of good information on Vector and Raster analysis and other tool sets available. The section on Google earth engine is also very good by providing guidance on the data sets available and importing them in to Qgis. I do feel this is a good beginner level course providing exposure to the basic capabilities for vector and raster data and expanding into remote sensing basics with gee. Thank you Minerva! I look forward to taking more of your QGIS courses.

It is a comprehensive course which is beneficial for beginners as well as experts. I find it extremely relevant for my research. The lectures of the instructor in the course are crisp and compact

Emily28 February 2021

Useful as an introduction to QGIS as shows where to find the key spatial analysis tools but quite light on the explanation on the use of the use of the tools. However I bought this in the sale and think it is still very useful and value for money

Kevin23 February 2021

Learned a lot about the general types of analysis available in QGIS. Wish the raster sections weren't so elevation dependent. There are other raster data available, you know, say climate and weather.

SR12 February 2021

It was an excellent decision taking this course. it is a great learning experience. The course is very useful for me.

KM4 February 2021

The course contains latest information and is very beneficial for my work. the instructor's method of delivery is quite engaging which makes the lectures interesting.

Darren3 February 2021

It is a very good course. There are several things that I learned for the first time, although I have been using QGIS for over a year now.

Bruce3 February 2021

Excellent course, would highly recommend to anyone wishing to further their skills. Great value for money too.

Andreas22 November 2020

Ich habe zwar einige Dinge neu gelernt, bin aber doch eher enttäuscht. Es gab keinen roten Faden und der Kurs wirkt etwas konzeptlos zusammengeschustert.

Ramesh6 October 2020

Contents of the course are of very high order. The instructor is knowledgeable about the subject.Perfect course for me.

Makathinya17 September 2020

The course is good with short sections. The lecture takes you step by step while explaining everything.

Ramnathan26 August 2020

Its a fantastic course. I hope to gain invaluable information in a easy-to-understand method. very useful for me.

MD30 July 2020

Very good course to start with QGIS and Spatial analysis. I expected a bit more in the expert part rather than in QGIS introduction and basic analysis.
