Course: QGIS and Python
- Planning and Registration
The QGIS and Python course lasts 3 days and costs € 1395. Basic knowledge of Python is an advantage. In this course you will learn the basic principle of the Python language. You will use this to develop applications on QGIS. It is possible to apply Python in various places in QGIS. For example for creating your own plugins, creating and customizing tools, selecting via python expressions. Python can also be used when running batch files.
We start with the positioning of QGIS and python within a broader spectrum. Then we will look at the main features they offer. And where we can apply python in QGIS. To be able to program effeicient python in QGIS requires a good understanding of python. That is why we will first go deeper into the most important programming concepts within python. An important difference with many other programming languages is that python indentation not only uses structure but also influences the course of the program. In addition, we will discuss the most important general programming concepts such as control-flow statements and loops. Data structures are also discussed. Examples include tuples, lists and dictionaries. Finally, we will also go deeper into Object Oriented programming, this is a specific way of programming. This is widely used nowadays.
Learning objectives of this course:
- You have seen the many possibilities that QGIS offers
- You are able to work with Python yourself and create your own tools and applications in QGIS.
