This exercise is included in the tutorial: Getting Started with GeoAgro GIS

GeoAgro GIS allows you to organize information into groups of layers called "projects".

When you start GeoAgro GIS, the Projects Panel will appear and you will be able to create a new project, subproject or open an existing one.

We will also add sample data to go through the examples of this Course: 'Getting Started With GeoAgro GIS'
