    Learn how to map your land using open source software and freely available data. This self-paced course on DVD is all video-based to allow the student to follow the tutorials with ease. The course introduces digital mapping tools and techniques (Geographic Information Systems or GIS), and how small landowners and permaculture designers can use these tools with freely available data for site planning. The course provides an excellent introduction to GIS for any small landowner interested in visualizing terrain of the land, planning layout of buildings and gardens, and using GIS maps in Google Earth. You will learn about freely available aerial photos, topographic data, soil maps, and other spatial layers, and how to view and manipulate the data using the open source GIS software QGIS.
