GIS for Surveyors Part 2 - Find open data. How to use it?


This webinar workshop will provide you with a QGIS project file with embedded wms open data imagery and data layers, to take the hard work out of this for you. We’ll walk through how to explore the data spatially against aerial imagery, and walk through the different types of data available for NSW areas and what features they have that are relevant to surveyors. We’ll also briefly give an overview of the major organisations who provide free and open data and how to access this easily and conveniently.
