QGIS Workshop – September 2019
Presented by Grant Boxer (Consultant)
Wednesday 18 September
Registration: From 8.45 am
Workshop: 9.15 am to 4.45 pm
99 York Street, Sydney, NSW
The AIG is proud to be supporting workshops 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 many data import, data display and map production functions required by geologists. Because the program is open source there are no problems with multiple copies and no licensing issues. A wide variety of geological symbols and patterns are available for annotating geological maps.
The workshop has been designed for new and experienced users of Geographic Information Systems to find out what QGIS can do for you. The workshop will comprise an introduction to the various features of QGIS and will be followed by extensive hands-on sessions using QGIS to create maps, and to explain and demonstrate the import and display of 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. 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.
