Learn all the steps for extending the latest version of QGIS (3.0.1) with custom python plugins. This course covers software installation, environment setup, creating a base plugin, deploying the plugin, developing user interfaces with PyQt5, automating data import, and basic implementation of geoprocessing. You will also learn to import basemaps from sources like Google, Bing, and ESRI. The skills you learn in this course will prepare you to develop plugins on your own to extend QGIS to meet your needs.
I have a BSc Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries and GIS and a MSc Degree in Watershed Science and Ecology. The majority of my work experience is in academic and government research where I developed and implemented numerical and spatial models for natural resources management. I enjoy teaching GIS and programming, and want to share how free, open source options for GIS analysis and cartography can be used for basic and complex analyses without purchasing expensive software.
