“Learning GIS with Game of Thrones” free book

Have you decided to learn to work with a Geographic Information System and you don’t know how to start? Now that the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones series will be in a few days, we recommend you do it using the book that we have just published: “Learning GIS with Game of Thrones“.

This book compiles a series of post with practical exercises that have been published in the gvSIG project blog previously. The objective is that anyone, without previous knowledge and through a series of practical exercises, learn to handle a GIS in an entertaining and funny way.

Everything necessary to follow the course is available free of charge, including gvSIG Desktop software – a free GIS used in more than 160 countries – as well as the data (download links are available in the book) and this tutorial, distributed with a Creative Commons license.

At the end of the book we have added a section with a series of links for those who want to delve into the learning of a Geographic Information System.

You can download it from: http://downloads.gvsig.org/download/documents/books/GoT_book_GIS_gvSIG.pdf

Enjoy it!

The add-ons manager is a tool that allows to customize gvSIG, installing new extensions, functional ones as well as other types (symbol libraries). It can be run from the “Tools/Add-ons manager” menu, although it can be accessed during the installing process.

Thanks to the “Add-ons manager” you can access to the plugins not installed by default as well as to the new tools that are published after a final version. Continue reading

Learning GIS with Game of Thrones (XIV): Layouts

At this second-to-last post of the course to learn the base of the Geographic Information Systems through practical exercises with Game of Thrones data we are going to work with the “Map” document.

A Layout document is a set of design elements of a map, organized in a virtual page, the objective of which is its graphical output (printing or exporting to PDF file). The elements that we see in the design are the elements that are printed or exported to the PDF file, being in the same paper size that we have selected on the screen. We can add two different type of elements in a Layout: Cartographic elements and design ones.

In our case we are going to create a map with the path followed by Greyjoy brothers, that we drew in the post about “Graphical editing“.  Continue reading
