Maptime #16 will be organized on 27 September at Waag. This time we will give a workshop QGIS in cooperation with Erik Meerburg of the Geo Academie. He will give an introduction in which he will place QGIS in the software landscape. After that, it's tiome to go hands-on ourselves with QGIS. The workshop will be aimed at beginners, but those of you that are advanced are certainly very welcome, to give us extra input and ideas. We will make thematic maps for newspapers or the internet, with the aid of QGIS. As data sources we will use PDOK and available open data from CBS.

Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.

This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.

Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop! All skill levels are welcome.
