MASTERING QGIS - 2nd Edition

Myself, Rick Smith, Luigi Pirelli and John Van Hoesen are excited to announce the expanded second edition of Mastering QGIS. The goal of this book is to help intermediate and advanced users of GIS develop a deep understanding of the capabilities of QGIS while building the technical skills that would facilitate in making the shift from a proprietary GIS software package to QGIS. This edition is updated to the latest long-term release version (2.14) and includes descriptions and examples of many new features. This includes a new chapter on Advanced Data Visualization which covers live layer effects, QGIS2ThreeJS and Atlas generation. It is available in both hard copy and digital versions from Packt Publishing and Amazon.
