Short Course: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a tool for Environmental Management

Department for Continuing Education - Professonal Development

Geographic Information System (GIS) is becoming a vital tool in Conservation Management. GIS permits the digital mapping of species locations, transect routes, reserve boundaries, and reserve features (such as ponds) and reserve management (such as coppiced areas). NGOs are using digital programmes to develop and link with GIS, as a vital component of more robust methods of planning management and recording. This session will assume no prior knowledge of GIS and introduce students to the basics, utilising Phase 1 data to enable students to gain first-hand experience, under the watchful eye of the tutor who has 30 years’ experience in GIS mapping.
