GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 2 ‘Introduction to reference systems’

At this second module, the last theoretical one before starting with the practical part,  we will speak about reference systems and how we can apply them in a GIS to represent our geographic information correctly.

It is very important to know about this issue because if we load two layers that are in different reference systems, in a same view, we can have them without being overlapped correctly. We will have to manage their reference systems to solve this problem.

Reference systems can be managed in different ways, and one of the most used options is through EPSG codes, where each different reference system is corresponding to a different code.

At this link you can see the list of EPSG codes of the different reference systems, that will help you to work with your cartography in gvSIG: http://downloads.gvsig.org/download/geodata/EPSG_codes/Projected_Coordinate_Reference_Systems.pdf

And here you have the video of this second module:

    I cannot access and view the view because my office network is restricted from youtube. Is that a possibility of having videos that are downloadable from this site itself, without going to youtube?

    Otherwise many thanks for this nice initiative. I am following the proceedings keenly with interest.

      Hi Justine,
      if you install VLC you can convert a Youtube URL to mp4. Have you tried it? Let us know if it works. If it doesn’t work in your case we would look for another way to download it.
