MEDISS tutorial: how to use the project QGIS for groundwater data entry
This second tutorial is designed to help MEDISS Partners get started with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data-entry. The video covers the data-entry process for groundwater.
The first tutorial covers the initial steps for downloading, installing and setting up of QGIS software.
The Italian partner Ente Acque della Sardegna (ENAS) has defined specific Guidelines for the Data Collection Plan that design a model of database collection process and a Geographical Information System (GIS) for the 4 pilot areas (Italy, Palestine, Jordan and Tunisia).
The Guidelines help to reach the same goal in the 4 MEDISS areas: each partner is invited to proceed with the collection of data and to feed their specific database that will be merged in a unique MEDISS database.
The DCP and the GIS are the core of the database that must be implemented alongside the project life with the results of the monitoring activities on pilot sites.
Each partner provides their data for the GIS Client, according to the Guidelines instructions and video tutorials. As you can see in the tutorial, ENAS provides an FTP service for data sharing.
