Aulasca, many free GIS resources


The virtual classroom of the Cartographic Institute of Andalusia is a platform mounted on Moodle, with which you can take distance learning courses. Apart from the many information services available from the Department of Housing and Ordinance Landing, I have heard of teaching materials in the geospatial theme recently made available.


The hosting platform is a bit miserable (though it could improve) and download frequently crashes, but once understood the sense of resignation is can download materials such as:

gvSIG Course

  • gvSIG Course (3 units)


  • Introduction to the geocoding
  • Administrative records
  • Geocoding apply to 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


  • Geodesy Concepts
  • Referente Sysytems
  • Introduction to GNSS, GPS and Geodesy
  • GNSS and navigation
  • GNSS and precision
  • Geodesy networks
  • Referente Systems, gvSIG and ArcGIS application

Web Services

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

Information Access

  • Rights of use

In each of the niches are compressed files that are supposed to contain all matters, but in the practice it’s better to download it separately as it does not happen the same in all cases, except that the download is not very good.

We think it is a good initiative, which adds to all other resources and services of the Institute.

Go to Aulasca.
