Groundhog is open source multifucntional geological software.  Among other things, it can be used to display and create boreholes as well as importing and exporting the data in AGS data format.

This training course comprises a mix of written tutorials and video demonstrations together with some exercises to work through at your own pace to gain skills in using Groundhog. 

The course will start the Monday after you have ordered it - if you require a different start date please email

Purchase of the course provides one person access to the course materials over a 4 week period.  The course should easily be completed in a couple of hours with plenty of additional time to practice and refer back to when using on real projects.

Public sector rates only apply to qualifying organisations (i.e. Local Authorities, Health Authorities, the Environment Agency, SEPA, etc.). 

The course covers 
  • importing AGS data
  • creating borehole data using the onboard excel template
  • viewing borehole logs
  • exporting boreholes logs as pdf (single log and multiple logs)
  • exporting AGS data as csv (for use with other programs)

Boreholes can also be displayed on plans and cross sections as described in the full Groundhog course.  Groundhog Bytes courses for these are also being developed.  There is a template builder for those with the appetite to explore further.  Details can be found in the user guide (page 92) but it is not covered within this course.   Delegates will need Windows computers (large display screens and mouse recommended)
By the end of the course you should be able to:
  • import and export AGS data
  • create, view and export borehole logs
  • use multiple methods to view the borehole data 
  • export borehole data as csv for use with other programs
All delegates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance – which should be retained and used to provide evidence of CPD activity when required by employers or professional bodies.

The course will be of relevance to anyone who needs to create or view borehole logs.  It is particularly relevant to Consultants & SI Contractors but Regulators and anyone reviewing third party reports may also find it of benefit.

This course is focused on using examples relevant to contaminated land management but is useful to any field where borehole logs are used, particularly the geotechnical industry.
