Welcome to Module 4 of ‘Introducing GIS for conservation’

This module is very hands-on, working with QGIS’ flexible map-making tools. Before you can make your map, though, you need to decide what you want it to show! You’ll also learn some symbology tricks so you can tell a story with your map

Learning objectives

By the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Symbolise vector features according to their attributes
  • Adjust raster symbology
  • List the elements required on a map and explain the purpose of each
  • State the message of your map
  • Create and export your own map using QGIS
