Bring WaPOR Data to the Field with QGIS and MerginMaps

The next edition of our training is one with such a beautiful dimension in terms of the quality of the speaker we have invited and the readiness of the general public. We are always happy at the level of impact we have made so far in most of our training and it is our prayer that we do more in the months and years to come as we aim to aggressively make our own contribution towards addressing and achieving the 4th goal of the Sustainable Development Goals; Promoting Quality Education for all.

In our next training, we will be addressing the topic: “Bringing WaPOR Data to the Field with QGIS and MerginMaps”. To many who are coming from the GIS and Water related background, this may seems a little new and completely new for new comers in this field but we can assure you that after this training, you will be enlightened and fully informed on what WaPOR data stands for and its possible applications.

Our Speaker, Hans van der Kwast is a senior lecturer in GIS & Spatial Data Management at IHE Delft Institute for Water Education. Hans holds a PhD in Physical Geography. During his previous work at the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in Belgium he participated in projects related to water quality modelling, land-use change modelling and the use of remote sensing for urban applications.

Since 2012 he has worked at IHE Delft, the largest international graduate education institute in the
field of water. In his teaching and capacity-development projects he actively promotes the use of
open source tools and open data by young professionals from the water sector in the Global South.
For this purpose he has developed free and commercial educational products. He co-authored the
book QGIS for Hydrological Applications and is a board member of the Dutch QGIS Users Association.
