GIS

Please download the QGIS software and begin to work with it in preparation for next weeks lecture.  Please have a QGIS project started and have at least one table/spreadsheet ready to import into QGIS in advance of that lecture.  Additionally, have an agenda for how you will use QGIS to find a site for your IDEAhaus.
