WS10: Managing Versioned Data with QGIS using GeoGig


Trainers: Tyler Battle (Boundless), Morgan Thompson (Boundless), Gabriel Roldan (Boundless)

Schedule: Monday Morning 9-13

Places: 30




This workshop will introduce attendees to GeoGig, a distributed version control system for geospatial data. We will start with a discussion of distributed version control as applied to the specific case of geospatial data, followed by a hands-on session with GeoGig. Then we will explore workflows suitable for data product generation and field collection using the graphical GeoGig interface in QGIS. Attendees will learn how GeoGig can be a key tool in a workflow when managing geospatial data.

The workshop is geared toward those with no prior GeoGig experience, but familiarity with basic GIS concepts is suggested. It will also be useful to have familiarity with the desktop GIS client QGIS, along with Git, a distributed version control system, but neither of these are required.
