LIDAR Update: The information below is rather out of date. I am currently working on a combined set of documents that updates the use of LIDAR data to include colour banded elevations in 2D and 3D.
These documents are a simultaneous introduction to basic use of QGIS for both LIDAR and archaeological fieldwork surveys.
These documents will be available at the beginning of November to coincide with
