Wednesday - 03/03/2021 03:00
From Feb 26 to 28, 2021, the IFEE held a training on "Using QGIS in forestry management" at Meeting Room E, Building A3, VNUF. Participants in the training course were staffs working at IFEE and some technical staffs from Hanoi FPD, Ninh Binh FPD, Hoa Binh FPD, Hoa Binh and Nghe An Forest Protection and Development Funds.
Training course on Using QGIS in Forestry management
IFEE is the implementing unit of the pilot project on forest survey and inventory in Ha Tinh and the National Forest Survey and Inventory Program for the period of 2013 - 2016. In addition, in the process of consulting and supporting central and local agencies on forest resource management and monitoring, the staff of the IFEE has updated and improved their skills in using GIS and remote sensing applications to improve work efficiency. 
QGIS is an open source GIS software with many advanced features, has many advantages compared to other software used a lot in the past (ArcGIS, Mapinfo, etc), completed free, many tools and plugins are Vietnamese authors post very favorable for the management and monitoring of forest resources at central and local forestry agencies.
With the support of the Board of Director of the IFEE, the training course on "Using QGIS in forestry management" was held at the Meeting Room E, Building A3, VNUF for 3 days from 26th to the end of 28th Feb 2021 with the participation of 47 members including staffs from IFEE and technical staffs from Hanoi - Ninh Binh - Hoa Binh FPDs, Nghe An - Hoa Binh forest protection and development Funds. 
The target of the training course is to help the technical staffs of the IFEE and the local forest managers and supervisors grasp the basic knowledge and skills about QGIS, the techniques of applying this software in surveying in the field, processing map data indoor as well as extracting data from various types of forest maps for reporting, monitoring forest resources in localities.   
The training course consisted of 3 parts: Part 1 - QGIS basic, including (1) Introduction to the software installation operations; (2) Introduction of interface and basic tools in QGIS; (3) VN-2000 coordinate system; (4) Digitize the map; (5) Working with attribute data; (6) Vector data presentation; (7) Split, merge vector data; (8) Rectify scanned map geometry; (9) Raster data presentation ; (10) Split, merge raster data; (11) Convert the data format; (12) Editing of map layout. Part 2 - Advanced QGIS, including (1) Base map; (2) Link table; (3) Linking spatial data; (4) Spatial inquiry; (5) Stacking space; (6) Spatial interpolation; (7) Find and correct geometry errors; (8) Surface analysis; (9) Remote sensing data processing; (10) Modeling; Part 3 - Some applications in forestry, including (1) Using satellite images to review and update forest status maps; (2) Interpret the satellite images and create forest status maps; (3) Zoning off basins based on digitalized elevation models.
First day (February 26, 2021)
Participants were instructed to install QGIS software 3.18.0 'Zurich', plug in installation, system set up, interface and basic tools in QGIS, closing map layer, working with projects, setting the coordinate system for the project, assigning/converting the coordinate system for a map layer, digitizing the map, working with attribute data, etc. has been instructed by trainers and a team of support staff to guide each student to understand and manipulate proficiently on the computer.

Second day (February 27, 2021)
Lecturer and support staffs help students review knowledge that was first acquired through a mobile warm-up game. The game was enthusiastically responded and participated by the trainees. Over 85% of students correctly answered all questions, some students completed within the first 2 seconds of each question.

After the warm-up game, participants had more practice in manipulating spatial data on the map layer (creating and formatting property fields, calculating attribute data, etc.) and edited the map for forest development monitoring and reporting.
In the afternoon, the skills of downloading satellite images and processing satellite images were transmitted and guided by the lecturer and staffs.
