2-Day Online Workshop

Visualising Meteorological Data with QGIS

A hands-on workshop by thriveGEO and Lutra Consulting

(1) Particulate Matter (PM) 10 from wildfires only (Data source: CAMS/ECMWF)

(2) Wind speed (Hurricane Michael) (Data source: ERA-5 reanalysis from C3S/ECMWF)

Learn how to leverage QGIS, an open-source Geographic Information System (GIS) software, to handle and visualise multi-dimensional meteorological data.

Recent developments in QGIS allow for an efficient handling of multi-dimensional meteorological data and supports the import of meteorological data formats. 

This 2-day online workshop will give you key knowledge and practical skills to create impactful visualisations of meteorological data. 

Designed for practitioners with basic GIS experience and no coding background, all are welcome to this course. Plus, workshop participants can obtain an official QGIS certificate!
