Where am I? Make a study area map using QGIS - Digital Scholar Series Online

Sometimes you don't need a full blown spatial analysis, you just need to show where in the world you did your research. In this session we will look at how to plot a few coordinates on a map to show your study area using the free and open source GIS package, QGIS. After this session you will know how to put your research on the map!

The Digital Library Services (DLS) department of UCT Libraries will be continuing their Digital Scholar Series in the second semester of 2023. Presenters from DLS will showcase some of the practises and tools available to enhance your research skills, with an ongoing focus on managing your research data efficiently.

These sessions are open to all postgraduate researchers and staff working within any field of study at UCT. The topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for research (what some of us call ‘data’) and touch on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle. The sessions are aimed at making your digital scholarship more efficient, so that your data  gives you less hassle and you have more time to focus on your teaching, learning and research.Our primary focus in the second half of the year will be on topics covering the middle and later stages of the research process, such as updating your Data Management Plan, cleaning your data, as well as best practices for sharing - highlighting work with sensitive data and using licences for publishing. 

After registering for the event, you will receive an email with a calendar invite attached. All sessions will start at 1 PM with the topics and dates listed below. The sessions will be hosted on MS Teams and will last 45 minutes, with an extra 15 minutes for questions or discussion. DLS staff will be present to moderate the chat and to help answer your questions as they come up.
