Webinar: Open geographies and open software - using open UKDS Census Support datasets in open source GIS software
21 January 2015
Online at 16.00
This webinar will provide an introduction to the range of open data that is available through Census Support. Through practical examples based around the geographic visualisation and spatial analysis of census data we will explore the range of the open source GIS software that is available.
A large number of geospatial datasets, including boundaries and geographic look-up tables are available through UK Data Service Census Support as open data and can be downloaded by anyone. In recent years open source GIS software has reached a point of maturity of being able to match or even exceed the capabilities of traditional proprietary GIS software.
