Webinar: QGIS for preparing and visualising hydrological data

Preprocessing open data for hydrological and hydraulic modelling using QGIS.

QGIS offers great tools for preparing data for hydrological and hydraulic modelling. This webinar will demonstrate how QGIS can be used to derive catchments and stream networks from digital elevation models. In addition, the webinar will focus on map design and 2D/3D visualisation of hydrological data in QGIS.
