Mapping Infrastructure Categories from GIS Satellite imagery
This workshop will provide practical tools and instructions for mapping informal settlements with satellite imagery using the open source geographic information systems application QGIS.
It will introduce attendees to vector and raster layers, ways to create and import vector shapefiles, and methods for accessing online satellite imagery by drawing on research on Indian government-designated categories of unplanned settlements that can be easily identified using remote sensing imagery.
No prior experience in GIS mapping is required.
