In the geosciences, as in all areas of human endeavour, the amount and availability of digital data is increasing exponentially. Increasingly, industry-based geoscientists will be expected to use sophisticated, cost-effective and innovative methods to process and interpret large amounts of multivariate digital data to enhance insight, decision making, and process automation. This rapid and ongoing shift from manual to automated methods for modelling complex geological phenomena has resulted in a knowledge gap. This limits the possible degree of understanding and knowledge to be gained from data or in the worst case, poor choices for analyses may lead to erroneous interpretations.
The Geodata Analytics short course is a timely addition to the CODES Master of Economic Geology degree and will focus on rigorous and reproducible methods for extracting and visualising meaningful information from geological data. Participants will learn data science fundamentals, how to design and construct automated workflows and communicate resultant models to aid collaborative interpretation and facilitate decision making.
This short course is divided into three parts delivered online and in succession.
Matthew Cracknell is a Lecturer and Researcher at CODES. He is an expert in geoscience data analysis, modelling and visualisation.
Guest presenters for the course will be confirmed soon.
Participants should ensure they have admin rights on their computer. Those completing Parts 2 and 3 will also need to be able to access/ use various platforms/software packages such as Youtube and Zoom in order to complete assessment items. More information will be provided in an FAQ document once registration is complete.
