Analysing Geochemical Data in ArcGIS Training CourseThis course will provide you with the fundamental skills to process, visualize and interpret geochemical data within ArcMap.

The Analysing Geochemical Data in ArcGIS course teaches users the fundamental tools for analysing geochemical data in Geochemistry for ArcGIS™.

Participants will use the geochemical data management tools to import and merge sample locations with assay results, perform QA/QC on geochemical data, as well as quickly and easily create several types of analytical graphs and multi-element reports.

The course also covers key surface mapping tools for symbolising point data, creating and displaying gridded data and contours, and creating map layers to visualise element distributions.
