IQ webinar by British Geological Survey focuses on the Digital Revolution
An industrial minerals specialist from the world-leading British Geological Survey will present this month’s ‘Lunch and Learn’ webinar from IQ Academy.
Expert geologist, Clive Mitchell is the Communications Team Leader at the British Geological Survey. He will present the 30-minute webinar on Thursday 29th November from 12:30-13:00 focusing on the digital revolution and how it has transformed the delivery of geological data to the world.
Clive says: “Geology has come a long way since the advent of the first national-scale geological map produced by pioneering British geologist, William Smith, in 1815. Over the last 20-years, the digital revolution has enabled a move from 2D flat plan view geological maps to the 3D geological models of the subsurface.
“My presentation will cover the advances made by the British Geological Survey in delivering data in the palm of your hand, with geological maps to your smart phone, 3D subsurface modelling and 3D visualisation of data in a virtual field laboratory.”
‘Data in the palm of your hand – mobile, digital and 3D geology’ is the 11th in the series of issues-related online presentations by IQ Academy. The webinars count towards valuable continuing professional development (CPD) and have been very popular, with hundreds of attendees from across the mineral and extractives industry to date.
The next webinar to take place is on 20 December 2018 – The Aggregates Industry – A Market Perspective with Andy Sales of BDS Marketing Research.
