MDRU partners with Goldspot Discoveries Corp., our new corporate member on this two-part series on QGIS.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a fundamental tool of modern geoscientists working with spatial datasets. Traditional proprietary GIS software typically used in mineral exploration is powerful but access and capabilities are often restricted dues to cost, training, or licensing/maintenance barriers. The QGIS project (initially called Quantum GIS) was initiated by a geologist in Alaska in 2002 and is now the world’s most popular free and open-source software (FOSS) for geospatial professionals.
In a follow-up to the 1.0 session*, this 2.5 days workshop will introduce you to the background, design, and features of the QGIS Desktop software and will demonstrate standard GIS tools as well as tailored applications to geoscience and mineral exploration workflows. Real-world examples will be demonstrated with data provided for hands-on exercises. Additional capabilities through 3rd party plug-ins will be discussed that extend QGIS features into fields such as exploration geochemistry, remote sensing, advanced geographic analysis, drill hole plotting, LiDAR processing, field data capture, and more.
- QGIS is free to use for anyone with a PC, Mac, or Linux computer, with free updates575
- Advanced spatial analysis at no extra cost
- Manage most common Raster and Vector file formats typically used in the industry
- Generate meaningful maps for figures, reports, or large-scale products
- Georeference scanned historical maps and digitize content
- Plot drill hole locations, perform the de-survey, and plot down-hole data such as assay or lithology
- Hands-on practical exercises from basic through advanced operations
