Webinar: QGIS for water modellers

Learn how to apply free GIS applications and plugins to aid the development and animation of hydrologic and hydraulic models

QGIS is a free and open-source cross-platform desktop geographic information system application that is used by water modellers to support viewing, editing, and analysis of geospatial data.

This webinar covers free tools to aid your hydrologic and hydraulic modelling efforts and provides live demonstrations of:
• MDAL: GIS beyond vector and raster
• MDAL integration with QGIS
• Using the mesh layer and Crayfish plugin for animating 2D flood models, including HEC-RAS 2D, TUFLOW, AnuGA, and more!
