> Hello!
> I'm excited to announce Discover QGIS is out in print! This is the  
> workbook for the award winning GeoAcademy curriculum. It is  
> essentially 5 college courses full of labs! It comes with all the  
> data, challenge exercises and solution files. Great for use in the  
> classroom. I hope this is a useful resource for many educators.
> Originally written for QGIS v2.4, the GeoAcademy material in this  
> workbook has been updated for use with QGIS v2.14, Inkscape v0.91,  
> and GRASS GIS v7.0.3. This is the most up-to-date version of the  
> GeoAcademy curriculum.
> Thought was given to improving the content and organization for both  
> hardcopy and electronic readers. The GeoAcademy data was reorganized  
> to match the chapter structure of this book. Changes were made to  
> several exercises, reflecting the newly updated integration of GRASS  
> GIS with GIS that came with QGIS v2.10. Portions that include  
> working with GRASS vector maps include both GRASS 6 and GRASS 7  
> versions of the exercise databases. The portions using the free  
> software Multi-Spec were rewritten using QGIS. Efforts were also  
> made to incorporate some of the exciting new QGIS features such as  
> Live Layer Effects into the Challenge Assignments.
