NaDiR Summer School title slide

Free GIS, Photogrammetry & Laser Scanning Training

Training materials in the use of GIS, Photogrammetry and Laser Scanning for historic townscapes produced by NaDiR, the Nafplion Digital Recording project, funded by the European Commission through Erasmus+ are available for free, open access.

Firstly, there is a set of 17 short practical videos on using GIS, all of which are on the Landward Research YouTube Channel, which comprehensively teach people how to use QGIS, which is a free and open source Geographic Information System.

3.2         Saving Attributes and Metadata (3 mins)

3.3         Cropping (7 Mins)

3.4         Geo-referencing (9 mins)

3.5         Digitise Images to Layers (4 mins)

4.1         Joins (8 mins)
