Various editions of “in company” training and assessment services for the migration of proprietary GIS platform to open source Qgis software.
START DATE: 2015 (various editions)
END DATE: 2017 (various editions)
CLIENT: Publically owned environmental management company
The training and assessment focusing on changing the GIS platform of a publically owned environmental management company had the following general objectives:
- Reduce the negative aspects involved in working with a proprietary software and those associated with working with software that is not regularly updated
- Extend the programmes developed by a public entity to all citizens and not limit them to users with commercial licences
- Support the reduction of costs and increasing budgetary efficiency of public bodies by reducing costs of licences
- Open up to local commercial companies and not only those related to proprietary software
To this end, a training service was provided which was adapted to the most common operations carried out by technical staff working in the field in their day-to-day work. The training comprised a mixture of face-to-face and online activities.
