Introduction to QGIS

2 day workshop
Perth, Australia

About the workshop

In this two day workshop for Mining & Exploration professionals, you’ll become familiar with QGIS, the powerful desktop GIS taking the mining and exploration industry by storm!

Whether you’re starting from scratch or simply want to fill gaps in your knowledge, we follow a systematic approach that benefits beginners and experienced professionals alike.

Using mining & exploration data like tenements, collars, and assays, we’ll explore how to bring multiple datasets together to explore, analyse, and present your data to a professional standard.

What we'll cover

We’ll cover the most important and commonly-used features of QGIS, including:

  • importing, exporting and editing raster & vector geospatial data
  • data-driven visualisation and analysis
  • creating professional-looking maps
  • using QGIS plugins for geology-specific workflows such as producing sections
  • sources of free geoscience data, satellite imagery, and templates

Who should attend

Geologists, geoscientists, field staff, GIS professionals, exploration managers, geoscientific information managers and others will learn about QGIS and how they can use it in their mining & exploration workflow.
