The Australian Institute of Geoscientists WA Branch is proud to be supporting a workshop on the GIS program QGIS. QGIS is a free open-source GIS program that runs on the PC, Mac and Linux.
Although QGIS is not specifically built for geological applications, the program is very capable and can do the majority of data import, data display and map production required by today’s geologists. Because the program is open source there are no problems with multiple copies and no licensing issues. QGIS is available in 24 languages including Chinese, Spanish, and Portuguese (including Brazilian Portuguese). A wide variety of geological symbols and patterns are available for decorating geological maps
This workshop has been designed for new and experienced users of Geographic Information Systems to find out what QGIS can do for you and will comprise an introduction to the various features of QGIS and will be followed by hands-on sessions using QGIS to import and display various types of data (vector, raster, geological, geochemical, geophysical and satellite imagery). Examples will be shown of the use of free on-line data from the GSWA and Landgate via web servers and the use of plug-ins to select, download and process satellite imagery.
The workshop will be based on the Windows OS but feel free to bring your Mac. Registrants will be requested to download and install the latest version of QGIS together with a number of free plug-ins before the workshop for use during the day.
GIS data will be provided for the hands-on workshop together with documentation on QGIS in mineral exploration.
