My QGIS YouTube channel

A short post today about the QGIS YouTube channel I just launched: called Map Academy. I have my Udemy courses online, and these are aimed at people who want a fully-fledged end-to-end QGIS course at intro or intermediate level. The Udemy courses are going pretty well and I have more than 6,000 students in 148 countries so far - with the top countries being the US, India, the UK, Germany, Canada, Nigeria, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt and Brazil. If you want to request a video on my new YouTube channel you can do that using the form below.

But I also wanted to put together some material for when people just want to know one thing, often when they're stuck. So that's what the channel is all about, as explained in the intro video.

I've posted loads of tutorials on this blog in the past, as well as on Twitter but for a few years I've wanted to put together a channel like this to help people when they're stuck, or when they just want to learn new tricks and techniques quickly, without having to watch a long video, long intro or being asked to like and subscribe.

At the time of writing there are almost 100 videos on there and I'm going to keep adding to the channel. You can just browse manually, check out the Playlists (below) or just use the channel search function.

Short and to the point

Search for what you need.

I am also going to add, from time-to-time, longer tutorial videos, like this one on how to animate your Strava data. Maybe I'll even do the odd livestream, who knows?

Got a suggestion for a video? Use the form at the top of the page. Or, feel free to get in touch with me via Twitter, LinkedIn, the contact form on my website or by emailing me directly if you know my address.

If you suggest a video and I can fit the content in to a couple of minutes then there's a good chance I'll add it to the channel.

Thanks for stopping by :)
