Participants from the Ethiopia short course: Modern tools for NTD control programmes

Modern tools for NTD control programmes

LASER have developed a series of GIS practicals to build capacity in NTD mapping. These tutorials use Quantum GIS, an open source mapping software which can be downloaded free of charge. LASER have developed practicals in both English and French for versions 2.18.9 Quantum GIS (manuals for QGIS1.0 and 2.0 are also available in English and Spanish). The practicals are designed to be useful as stand alone resources, but please contact us if you have any questions or feedback.

The sample data are the same across both languages and software versions. The datasets have been created purely for the purposes of this tutorial and are not reflective of any real-life surveys or programmes.
