Advancing GIS skills for geotechnical investigations

This new, more advanced course aims to cover a range of GIS tasks encountered during typical geotechnical investigations. This will be suited for geotechnical practitioners who have previously done the introductory course or already have reasonable experience in GIS software, including QGIS.

This intermediate level course is currently under development with the first due in April (see schedule below) and any feedback on content would be appreciated. It will cover a range of tasks that may be encountered during the life cycle of a ‘typical’ geotechnical investigation, including:

Digital datasets, AS1726 compatible symbol sets and course notes will be provided for download.

Attendee Requirements

Attendees for this course will require a relatively modern mid-range computer with a current operating system installed, 2 monitors, webcam and headset. A reliable internet connection with sufficient bandwidth for video conferencing is essential along with a quiet office environment free from distractions. Detailed setup instructions will be provided upon registration.

About the course presenter

The course will be led by Colin Mazengarb, an advanced user of GIS software over his career as a regional geologist and engineering-geologist, in both New Zealand and Australia. Colin developed the original GIS for Geotechs course presented in Australia and New Zealand.

In person Courses

Expressions of interest are welcome for those who wish to attend in person (face to face) courses this year in either of the 4 major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Furthermore, we welcome corporate requests for in-house training where facilities are provided.
