In this workshop you will learn the basics of QGIS and create your first map. This is a very useful skill even in the time of dynamic web-maps. You get to decide which information to show and what to highlight. The data for the map will come from free sources and maybe even a Wikidata query. It will also be explained how to convert it to SVG and upload it to Commons.
