A map can be an excellent way to visualize your research. It can help you display your research sites, create a one-glance overview of how different areas score on some variable, or show the shortest straight-line distance between two phenomena. In this workshop, you will learn how to create maps that effectively communicate your research. We will be using a free and open-source software QGIS, and the workshop requires no prior (coding) experience. We will start by creating maps using existing QGIS files, then consider how to add your data of choice to these and display it effectively, and finally, we will do some basic geo-processing.
Having completed this workshop, you will be able to:
