GIS applied to Municipality Management: Module 3 ‘Views, layers, symbology, labelling’

At this third module, the first one of the practical part, we will speak about how to create a project in gvSIG Desktop, including Views and adding layers on them. We will apply a legend on them too and we will see how to add labels to their elements.

To follow this module you have to install gvSIG Desktop and download the cartography, and although it’s explained at the video, here we are going to summarize how to do it:

  1. Access to the gvSIG Desktop Downloads section of the gvSIG website: http://www.gvsig.com/en/products/gvsig-desktop/downloads
  2. Download the gvSIG version corresponding with your operating system. There are two available distributions:
    1. installable: It’s installed on your computer, through a wizard that you have to follow.
    2. portable: You only have to unzip the .zip file in a path without spaces (in Windows it doesn’t have to be directly in C:\), and you can run gvSIG Desktop directly (you can create a “gvsig” folder in C:\ for example, and then you move the portable version folder to it). In Windows you have to run the gvsig-desktop.vbs file, and in Linux the gvSIG.sh one.
  3. Download the cartography from http://downloads.gvsig.org/download/documents/learning/gvsig-courses/GIS_municipality_management_1/GIS_municipality_management_course-Module_3.zip

Note: If you get an error when installing gvSIG 2.3.1 on Windows 10 – 64 bits you can download the portable version where the problem is solved.

At the first module you can find a frequent questions section about the course, and if you have any doubt or error using gvSIG you can consult this post:  https://blog.gvsig.org/2015/06/17/what-to-do-when-we-get-an-error-in-gvsig/

Here you have the videotutorial of this third module:
