I’ve just added a new set of pages in the training section of this website. These tutorial pages cover 3D Geology diagram techniques. The first tutorials for 3D diagrams using a mixture of free and non-free software are live now. I will also make alternate versions of these tutorials that use only free software soon.
This tutorial covers adding XY data to ArcGIS, so that you can view and work with the data in ArcGIS. By XY data I mean point data such as foliation that has a spatial (XY) component associated with it.
Details, times, places
Check out my Events Calendar to find out: time, location, content for all future training sessions. If you are interested in taking part in this training series please contact me. There will be limited spaces available.
I also run a free software training series (using Inkscape and the GIMP) with a similar format that I will start next semester.

A few people have been using the Cathodoluminescence microscopy (incl. image capture) equipment that Brent Pooley and I set up. We have, until now, been sharing the image capture part with the photomicrograph setup in the Graphics Lab. This was quite inconvenient and it meant that the Photomicrograph setup, which gets used a lot, was often unavailable.
We are pleased to announce that we now have a dedicated Cathodoluminescence microscopy (incl. image capture) setup. This also means that the Photomicrograph setup will now have uninterrupted availability. Instructions and training are available for both setups, contact me (photomicro, CL) or Brent (CL) for training.
