Led by Simon Miles, this one-day course will provide a more advanced overview to the uses of QGIS (a free and open source GIS application) for archaeological purposes. It will build upon the previous Introduction to GIS and QGIS workshops, but attending that course is not a prerequisite of attending this one.
Using actual site data, combined with a series of Open-Data sources we will explore how to use QGIS. We will look at pre excavation tasks such as geophysics, field walking and site grids, as well as post excavation find plotting, digitising of trenches and georeferencing.
This course is part of the new HLF Sustainable Impact training programme, and will be provided at no charge. However, booking is essential and spaces are limited, so we do ask that participants commit to attending, once signed up. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book and for queries.
A follow-up more advanced course 'Driving into QGIS' is planned for later in 2019, for those who wish to continue with more in-depth training.
*Please note that this particular day-course is now full, but is being repeated on 8 February*
