Course Leader

Grant Boxer, a consultant geologist with over 40 years’ experience in exploration and mining, has presented numerous QGIS workshops in western and eastern Australia.

This workshop is designed to expand on the previous workshop and provide more detail on using QGIS for earth science applications. It is also aimed at users of QGIS who would like to expand their skills and participants are encouraged to bring along their questions.
The workshop will begin with a brief review of QGIS 3 and will be followed by a series of hands-on exercises covering;

  • Useful plugins
  • Registering raster images
  • Reviewing the process of assigning pattern fills to polygons
  • Joining spatial and non-spatial data
  • Using the new Geopackage file format and why
  • Searching for and use of open source WMS data
  • Plotting drill hole traces and visualising drill holes in 3D using QGIS2Threejs
  • Geological legends
  • Review of remote sensing applications in QGIS

Time will be allocated at the end of the day for discussion topics from participants and answering specific user problems
