QGIS Tutorial Labs
Sometimes I create hillshades using the QGIS hillshade plugin and then overlay the original DEM over it.
A note from Sam in the Linfiniti team: The last two weeks of FOSS GIS training courses (posted about here and here ) have been impressive. High-five to the trainers, Tim and Gavin, for their hard work!
In this example we are going to begin to build a standalone GIS application using Python and the QGIS libraries. We’ll start simple by creating an application to load and display a shapefile.
