Archaeology Images, LIDAR
and more...
Stephen Eastmead Archaeology Photographs and 3D Models
This 105 page A4 pdf document should enable those involved in community archaeology to start using a Quantum Graphical Information System to handle their archaeology data and generate professional looking maps for their reports, whilst at the same time learning how to process the LIDAR data that is freely available in the UK and elsewhere. LIDAR is processed as: 2D greyscale images, 2D colour banded elevations and 3D greyscale and colour banded elevation models.

Examples of the 3D models can be viewed here.

It covers using Open Source vector and raster maps and lots more.

Students may find this a useful initial guide too.

Whilst it uses archaeological data to demonstrate how you can use QGIS, it is equally applicable to other specialties and data sources. 

The Contents page can be read by scrolling down this page.

All of the described procedures have been described for Windows 10 users, and a colleague has worked through the document using a MAC OS X computer. A number of MAC OS X alternative procedures are included.

IMPORTANT: This Guide describes using QGIS stable version 2.14.22. 
QGIS version 2.18.xx and later is now not recommended for use with this guide.
