ArcGIS and Advanced Spatial Modeling

The 5-day course ArcGIS for Miners and Mineral Explorationists will equip you with workflows and knowledge that are crucial in gathering and analysing the data required to aid efficient exploration targeting and resource development programmes. World-class geoscientific data from Finland will be utilised in conjunction with your own data to explain international best practice methods and requirements of data acquisition, manipulation, cartography & visualisation, advanced spatial interpretation and mineral potential mapping using basic and advanced ArcGIS packages.
The course builds upon the in-depth experience of passionate industry exploration geologists and GIS technology developers. Many years of boots-on-the-ground experience resulted in drawing together and making accessible the most relevant workflows used in the mining and exploration sector.
