QGIS: an introductory course for biological recorders

Thursday, April 2, 2015
Participants will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of GIS and using QGIS as a tool to explore biological records. We will cover topics like obtaining and displaying basemap data (e.g. Ordnance Survey basemaps and Google & Bing aerial imagery), capturing spatial data, loading data from GPS smart-phone apps or hand-held GPS, producing maps for reports or for display on the web.
