About the workshop

This workshop is a deep dive into using QGIS to acquire and process ASTER, Sentinel-2, and Landsat satellite imagery for mineral exploration and other earth observation activities.

Participants will be guided through how to source, download, and process freely available satellite imagery and produce RGB images of various spectral bands to enhance features of interest.


What we'll cover

We'll explore using satellite data in various workflows, covering:
  • finding and processing satellite imagery
  • working with the Semi-Automatic Classification QGIS plugin
  • frequently used band ratios
  • PCA analysis for enhancing geological and other surface features
  • basic mineral mapping

Who should attend

Geologists, geophysicists, earth scientists, environmental scientists, and anyone monitoring earth surface processes will learn the fundamentals of using satellite imagery in QGIS for mining and exploration.


Mammoth Geospatial is an accredited QGIS Certifying Organisation. Workshop participants have the option of receiving an official QGIS certificate on completion, which provides a mechanism to financially support the QGIS project.

Additional Information

What to bring
  • A laptop with a recent version of QGIS
  • A mouse with a scroll wheel is recommended
