GRASS GIS crash course

On 3 November 2017 there will be a GRASS GIS crash course, organized by and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of ITC.  The course will provide participants with an overview of the software capabilities and a hands-on experience in raster, vector and time series processing with the Open Source software GRASS GIS 7. For more information, go here. You can register on our Meetup page [update: maximum number of participants has been reached, registration closed].

Course structure/contents

The course consists of mainly practical sessions with a short intro to basic concepts at the beginning. All the code and material will be publicly available

  • We will cover the following introductory topics, among others:
  • GRASS database, locations and mapsets
  • Working with different data types (vector, raster, 3D raster formats, time series)
  • Different interfaces (GUI, CLI, Python)
  • Region and mask
  • Scripting examples
  • Visualization of spatial data; scale bar, symbols, grids, color tables, histograms
  • Where to find help

After the introduction with simple examples, we will go together through a guided exercise to demonstrate a full workflow in GRASS GIS, involving raster, vector and temporal data. In the end, participants will have the chance to follow three different tutorials: Remote sensing analysis using satellite data, Time series processing and spatial point interpolation. Teachers will be available for questions and explanations.
