November Meetup Minutes

12 Nov 2015

The Puget Sound QGIS user’s group met Tuesday November 10th at the Lakewood Library.

We had five members in attendance and opened the meeting with a discussion of business Topics.

First time attendee Will Thomas asked for an orientation to QGIS. Stu filled him in with a brief history of GIS software and how QGIS came to be. Stu also mentioned that GIS Stack Exchange was a great place to ask questions and browse for interesting ideas on how to use QGIS.

Paul McCombs gave a presentation: Exploring Relations in QGIS.

John showed us how to use the Print Composer to produce a paper or digital output map. He used a handbook written by PSQGIS member Bob Catherman as a resource for his demonstration. Bob is interested in feedback on his handbook which is available on the PSQGIS Resource page.

Stu lead a discussion of EPSG codes that are used to specify map projections in QGIS.

Clifford demonstrated how to convert a layer.
