Course Overview

Desktop Quickstart: Projections

In this course, we will introduce you to the concept of Coordinate Reference Systems (also known as projections). You will explore how projections work in QGIS and learn about tools available for vector and rasters - particularly for reprojecting vector and raster data, enabling on-the-fly reprojection and assigning a projection to data without one.

Experience Level:

Quickstart

Skills Covered:

  • View a layer’s coordinate reference system
  • Set the coordinate reference system
  • Reproject a vector layer

Lessons1 hr

  • Working with Projections
  • Course Survey
