Digitizing Map Data
QGIS offers powerful tools for on-screen digitizing and editing, which we will explore in this course
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.
- Create a new layer
- Add a new feature
- Edit geometries
- Set advanced snapping options
This course was created using QGIS 2.4 for Boundless Desktop 1.0. Functionality may differ in other versions.
