This workshop, supported by both the AIG and GSA, is designed to expand on the “Introduction to QGIS for Geologists” workshop, providing more detail on using QGIS for geoscience applications. It is aimed at users of QGIS who would like to expand their skills.

The “More QGIS for Geoscientists” workshop will begin with a brief review of some of the new developments in version 3 and will be followed by a series of hands-on exercises covering:

  • Using the new Geopackage file format
  • Useful plugins
  • Conversion of local grid to real world coordinates
  • Registering raster images
  • Plotting drill hole traces and basic cross sections
  • Reviewing the process of assigning pattern fills to geological polygons
  • Joining spatial and non-spatial data
  • Searching for and use of open source WMS data
  • 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 specific user problems. GIS data will be provided for the hands-on workshop together with documentation on using QGIS in mineral exploration. The workshop will be based on the Windows OS but feel free to bring your Mac.


Attendees must bring their own laptop, preloaded with the latest version of QGIS software and
selected free plugins.

Prior to the workshop, everyone registered will receive an email with advice on the plug-ins to be pre-loaded beforehand.


The workshop is limited to 16 attendees, so please register early
