Join Mercian Archaeological Services and learn how GIS software can reveal different archaeological features and past landscapes. This training school is designed to provide an introduction to using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) using QGIS software for archaeology. Participants will work with survey data and learn how to create maps, vector layers geo-reference raster images, work with LiDAR data, create and work with 3D models, create layouts, and export data.
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. Archaeologists use GIS for many things including creating maps, analysing landscapes, understanding archaeological sites, creating 3D models, viewshed analysis, presenting survey data and more. GIS is a great way to integrate data from projects and can be used to analyse that data as well as present it in the form of maps for publication. All of these elements are covered in the course.
Participants attending the course must be aged 15yrs and above. Any participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
