Do you have GIS-related data you want to share using open technologies? We will present you a way to publish data using QGIS via Layman QGIS Plugin and visualize them using HSLayers-NG, which is a web-based application for sharing data and maps from different HUBs with a broad community. These tools can contribute to enabling Citizen Science Network creation for better data sharing and understanding.
Who (is the webinar for): Students, researchers, data analytics, NGO, African and European projects, anybody in Africa and beyond, who is dealing with data management.
