Due the high demand of the first round of the online workshop “Project Monitoring and Reporting: Introduction to Geographic Methods using Open-Source Software”. The Institute of International Forestry and Forest Products of the TU Dresden in collaboration with BluoVerda Deutschland e.V. and Weltweit e.V. -DAAD funded-, are pleased to invite you to apply to a second round.
Topic: This is an introductory course that teaches how to use the open-source software Open Foris and QGis to generate spatial information for monitoring and reporting project activities and outputs. Using a learning-by-doing approach, it addresses the theoretical and practical knowledge required for spatial data collection and visualization.

However, students from developing programmes in Germany, young researchers, and professionals with experience in international development projects who would like to further qualify and professionalize their skills are also welcomed to apply.
When: It will take place from 9. November – 10. December 2020 and is divided into six online sessions, 5 group work sessions and 5 online mentoring sessions distributed in 5 weeks.
