The presentation will show how the geological evolution of terrestrial bodies such Mars, Moon and Mercury is well reflected on their geological maps, which are indeed extremely important for their future exploration.
Basics of remote sensing instruments and techniques.
Mapping project creation
Loading rasters and mouse buttons: styling and properties of DTMs and imagery
CRS: project and layer CRSs
Creating vector layers
First steps in geometry creation: Add Point/Line/Polygon
Styling vectors using the fields
An informal session for practising and reviewing the basics of QGIS. Questions welcome.
Geological sections unreveal the subsurface geology hidden underneath the lanscape of any planetary body. They can be produced from geological maps and used to check their consistency as well as to create 3D subsurface models. The lecture will explain the general principles to be followed in order to produce geological sections showing their differences on diverse planetary and geological contexts.
How to practically create a geologic cross-section starting fromg QGIS plugins, to extract topographic profiles, geologic contacts, dip and strike. How to finalize the interpreted cross-section in the open source InkScape software.
Map finalization and printing layout creation
Demonstration of the mappy plugin and hands-on to start geological mapping
