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 Tom.bio 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.
