Aulasca, many free GIS resources

Banner1 (1)

The Virtual Classroom of the Cartographic Institute of Andalusia is a platform mounted on Moodle, with which distance courses can be carried out. Apart from the multiple information services available from the Department of Housing and Land Management, I have known Of didactic material in the geospatial subject that has recently been made available.


The hosting platform is a bit miserable (although it could improve) and often the download is suspended, but once understanding the sense of resignation it is possible to download materials such as:

GvSIG course

  • Course of gvSIG (3 units)


  • Introduction to Geocoding
  • Administrative records
  • Geocoding applied to the cadastre
  • Geocoding, statistical aspects
  • Geocoding SITNA Navarra
  • Geocoding health

Standardization and quality

  • Introduction to quality
  • Quality assurance
  • Thematic control
  • Positional accuracy
  • Quality management
  • ISO 19100
  • Technical Standards


  • Concepts of geodesy
  • Reference systems
  • Introduction to GNSS, GPS and geodesy
  • GNSS and navigation
  • GNSS and precision
  • Geodetic networks
  • Reference systems, gvSIG application and ArcGIS

web services

  • Introduction to OGC services
  • Practices with Mapserver
  • CS-W
  • OpenLS
  • SWE
  • WFS, WFS-T
  • WCS
  • WPS

Access to information

  • Rights of use

In each of the niches there are compressed files that are supposed to contain all the subjects, but in practice it is better to download them separately because it is not the same in all cases, apart from that the download is not very good.

It seems to us a good initiative, which adds to all the other resources and services of the Institute.

Go to Aulasca.
