1.2.2. Objetivos escalonados del curso

Este curso se estructuró para diferentes niveles de experiencia del usuario. Según la categoría en la que se considere, puede esperar un conjunto diferente de resultados del curso. Cada categoría contiene información que es esencial para la siguiente, por lo que es importante hacer todos los ejercicios que estén a su nivel o por debajo de su nivel de experiencia.

1.2.2.1. basic Básico

In this category, the course assumes that you have little or no prior experience with theoretical GIS knowledge or the operation of GIS software.

Limited theoretical background will be provided to explain the purpose of an action you will be performing in the program, but the emphasis is on learning by doing.

When you complete the course, you will have a better concept of the possibilities of GIS, and how to harness their power via QGIS.

1.2.2.2. moderate Intermediate

In this category, it is assumed that you have working knowledge and experience of the everyday uses of GIS software.

Building on the instructions for the beginner level will provide you with familiar ground, as well as to make you aware of the cases where QGIS does things slightly differently from other software you may be used to. You will also learn how to use analysis functions in QGIS.

When you complete the course, you should be comfortable with using QGIS for all of the functions you usually need for everyday use.

1.2.2.3. hard Avanzado

In this category, the assumption is that you are experienced with GIS software, have knowledge of and experience with spatial databases, using data on a remote server, perhaps writing scripts for analysis purposes, etc.

Building on the instructions for the other two levels will familiarize you with the approach that the QGIS interface follows, and will ensure that you know how to access the basic functions that you need. You will also be shown how to make use of the QGIS plugin system, database access, and so on.

When you complete the course, you should be well-acquainted with the everyday operation of QGIS, as well as its more advanced functions.
