LQM GIS web-bytes: Viewing your Borehole Logs

Part of the LQM series of recorded demos using the free and open source QGIS software developed primarily for contaminated land practitioners.

Learn how to view your borehole logs within your QGIS project. Visualise your site investigation data and cross-check this against the log description for the material sampled. Achieve this from within GIS model by simply clicking on a borehole location to open up logs directly. 

This short (12.5 minute) QGIS demonstration clearly shows you how to add your borehole locations as a new layer and define an action to open up and view your logs* by simply clicking on a location. Understand how actions can add greater functionaility to your maps and GIS model.

* assumes these are created separately using your usual logging software

Require interactive face-to-face hands-on tuition to help you solve your contaminated land problems using QGIS? 

LQM provide a range of courses from complete beginners (QGIS1) through to intermediate and more advanced GIS users (QGIS2 and QGIS3).
