QGIS FOR BIOLOGICAL RECORDERS 2 Day course starts 8th October - Full, reserve list being taken - 08/10/2019

Learn the basics of using QGIS software.

QGIS is a free, open source Geographic Information Software. It allows you to map spatial data such as biological records and any other features such as site boundaries, survey routes and habitats. You can use it to create maps for use in reports, presentations or on the web. On this two day course you will learn the fundamentals of using the software, importing biological records and creating a map. We will use the FSC plugin that makes importing biological records and working with UK grid references really easy. We will also look at some other useful analysis you can do as well as highlighting sources of freely available data and help and support.
