Based on the open-source application QGIS, the QBook is a free, dynamic, Moodle-based, on and offline training hub. This QGIS “Cookbook” provides easy access to GIS training materials, data and resources for GIS beginners and practitioners that are interested to increase their capacities and share their experience.
