Digitizing

QGIS offers powerful tools for on-screen digitizing and editing, which we will explore in this course

Course Overview

Digitizing

Digitizing is the act of manually drawing vector data while using a basemap as a point of reference. This task is very common when the only data source you have is a raster image, but need vector layers to use in your analysis.
QGIS offers powerful tools for on-screen digitizing and editing, which we will explore in this course. Adding basic features, editing geometries, and setting snapping is covered.

Experience Level:

Basic

Skills Covered:

  • Create a new layer
  • Add a new feature
  • Edit geometries
  • Set advanced snapping options

Lessons1 hr
