The Environmental Health Research Centre, together with the Department of Engineering and the Erasmus Office at the University of Nicosia, is offering a two-day workshop titled “Introduction to QGIS software and watershed delineation using the digital elevation model from SRTM/NASA”.
The workshop will be delivered by Dr David de Andrade Costa (Instituto Federal Fluminense – IFF, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) and Prof Antonio J. Silva Neto (Department of Mechanical Engineering, Polytechnic Institute, Rio de Janeiro State University, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
The use of hydrological modelling in environmental applications requires the choice of the study area, usually a river basin. A watershed is recognized as the best place for planning and management of waters, and it is usually a land area that channels rainfall and snowmelt to creeks, streams, and rivers, and eventually to outflow points such as reservoirs, bays, and the ocean. Its delineation can be performed using a digital elevation model and geoprocessing techniques. This workshop will address the concepts that are required for watershed delineation. A practical activity will be held in the QGIS software (www.qgis.org/) by using the digital elevation model from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM)/NASA.
