The second session is a hands-on workshop, with a maximum participation of 12, and is designed more for participants that have a more technical background. This allows them to actually gain practical experience in the use of the open source GIS tools. Sessions will be led by members of OSGEO-Ottawa.

Topics will include leveraging QGIS Desktop and the Semi-Automatic Classification plugin to extract a forest canopy cover map of Ottawa using either Sentinel or Landsat satellite imagery. The use of a PostgreSQL/PostGIS, GeoServer/MapServer, and OpenLayers stack to publish geospatial data using open web mapping standards such as Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS) will be explored. Finally, leveraging of GeoNode to manage and share geospatial data on the web will also be included.
