OpenSource GIS Workshops
Researching Telford remains has shown the importance that maps can play, though the difficulty remains of comparing maps of different periods. A course run by Malcolm Standring showed how to use the free OpenSoucce QGIS package to georeferenced maps and integrate them with data, using data from the Kyle of Sutherland Telford project as an example. Coming to terms with the software can be challenging, but Malcolm provided a wealth of teaching datasets, and by the end people were exploring how to use GIS with their own projects.
