LQM GIS web-bytes: Site Zoning Using Risk Assessment Criteria

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 delineate different landuse zones across your site contaminant datasets by applying relevant human health risk asssessment criteria to help you understand or communicate the potential risks or development constraints at your sites.

This short (18 minute) QGIS demonstration clearly shows you how to import your site investigation dataset, combine it with your risk assessment criteria and generate new attributes to help you define your landuse zones quickly using a range of processing algorithms within QGIS.

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).
