Cost Path Analysis

Cost Path Analysis

This course will cover the workflow for cost path analysis in QGIS

Course Overview

Cost Path Analysis

This course will cover the workflow for cost path analysis in QGIS. Cost path analysis, also known as least cost path, is a series of algorithms in GIS that will calculate an efficient route from a starting point to one or more points across a raster surface.

Experience Level:

Advanced

Skills Covered:

  • Calculate slope
  • Reclassify a raster
  • Raster calculator
  • Cumulative cost
  • Least cost path

This course was created using QGIS 2.4 for Boundless Desktop 1.0. Functionality may differ in other versions.
