# Analyzing the Areas of Influence with Thiessen Polygons using QGIS

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Thiessen Polygons technique, which is also known as Voronoi Polygons, to analyze the area of influence. This specific tutorial provides an example of how the above technique can be used to compute the Thiessen weights to obtain the area-weighted rainfall for a watershed.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the Thiessen Polygons technique, which is also known as Voronoi Polygons, to analyze the area of influence. This specific tutorial provides an example of how the above technique can be used to compute the Thiessen weights to obtain the area-weighted rainfall for a watershed. The second part of the tutorial illustrates the methodology for carrying out the analysis for a bit of a complex case in which, the Voronoi Polygons technique is used to obtain the weights for each sub-catchment of the watershed.

The analysis is carried out by making use of the freely available open source QGIS 3 software.

## An Absolute Beginner's Guide to QGIS 3

## Developing a 3D Model using QGIS

In this tutorial, you will learn how to develop a 3D model from a DEM using QGIS. We will be using the QGIS plugin 'Qgis2threejs' in order to build the 3D model, adjust the vertical exaggeration of the terrain, adjust the styling and finally export the 3D model as an HTML file, so that the 3D model can be opened by a web browser without having the need to have QGIS.

## Creating a Heatmap using QGIS

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use QGIS in order to develop a heatmap based on a given set of point data (Kernal Density Estimation). The data corresponds to the recorded traffic incidents during year 2011 in Barcelona, Spain.

## Creating 3D Maps and Animations using QGIS

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create 3D maps using vector data in QGIS. As an example, the tutorial illustrates how to transform 2D building footprint data into 3D and visualize it with the aid of a base layer from OpenStreetMaps, and to finally create an animation using QGIS.
