The Loose Goat:

Maps, Data and more

Discover: A series of training workshops designed to help you discover Open-Data and Commerical data.

Tel: 0777 236 4721



The UK is one of the foremost counties in the world for GIS data, both commerical and Open-Data. Sometimes it is hard to know where to begin sourcing data and you are left wondering which data is best for the project(s) you have. We can help you explore and discover which data works for you.

The Discover training sessions gives you hands on access to data, think of it as 'try before you buy!' We give you access to samples of Ordnance Survey and Verisk premium products and guide you through how and where you can access the data. Using QGIS you'll discover how to process, convert, load, style and use the data. We dont just use premium products in our workshops, we also look at Open-Data as well.

The aim of the workshop is to allow you to discover the data, so that you can assess if the data fits your project needs.

Why attend?
While there are some excellent blogs and tutorials, sometimes they leave you wanting. Our training aims to give you extra. It gives you a chance to get hands on and ask questions that online resources might not achieve.

Who should attend?
This is open to anyone that wants to discover more about verious datasets and irrspective of your GIS background we can help you discover something new!
