Where can I download the exercise data for The Free Quantum GIS Training Manual? The pdf of the manual just mentions the sources of the data, but doesn't give any links.

  • Which manual? Please provide a link to the manual you are talking about. – underdark Dec 17 '12 at 11:57

As of February 2014, the QGIS Training Manual has been updated to match QGIS 2.x. The manual has also been moved.

The online manual can be found here:


and the exercise data can be downloaded here:


A downloadable PDF version will be made available soon.


While working on publishing a print copy of this manual, I decided to post a single zip file (41MB) of all the exercise data to make this a bit more convenient:


This one has tutorial plus exercise data. Hope it may help you. http://www.qgistutorials.com/en/


This one is the first basic tutorial with data download.

Download the Natural Earth Quickstart Kit. Size: ~157 mb

  • @Martin Basically you are right, but the asker wanted a download link for the data. If the linked page changes, someone has to update it here too. – AndreJ Aug 27 '14 at 8:01

Seems like is missing some information in the layer admin_boundaries/Western_Cape_UTM33S.shp

Only have one attribute?
