We use QGIS on a regular basis in our teaching for a wide range of GIS practicals. We have created a version of one of the practicals you can try out for free. We use QGIS’s Map Composer to create a publication quality map. All the data you need is included in the zip file linked below.
This practical uses QGIS version 2.2, and we will be posting an updated version when we have time to update it. If you have any comments, we welcome them – please post below.
