GIS for Geoscientists

GIS for Geoscientists: This course was deigned by me, in consultation with McGill’s SEG Chapter officers. The goal of this course is to offer an accelerated yet beginner-friendly introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) that is both holistic and accessible to geoscientists. The course is offered in four parts, with each lecture building out fundamental GIS skills using QGIS 3.10 and associated Plugins. If you are interested in having this course run at your institution, please reach out to me! I am happy to customize course content to suit different learning objectives.
