QGIS Training for Ecological Consultants

We are pleased to announce that we will be running our Introduction to QGIS for Ecological Consultants training course on the 21 & 22 February 2017. Building on the success of our previous one-day course, we have decided to provide a more in-depth two day course, ensuring that attendees have a well-practised understanding and achieve the objectives of the course.

The course will provide participants with the necessary tools to produce a professional looking phase 1 habitat map using QGIS®, an open-source freely available software. This powerful Geographic Information System (GIS) program allows users to communicate and manipulate a wide range of typical ecological survey data collected by ecologists for use in professional looking reports. This will include navigating the QGIS® environment and understanding terminology; importing and displaying data from multiple sources; phase 1 habitat mapping and symbology; creating labels; advanced editing tools; use of attribute tables; print composer; introduction to plugins; bookmarks and creating buffers.

The price is £265.00 (including VAT) if booked prior to 24th December 2016 or £295.00 if booked after 24th December 2016. Places are limited so please book early to ensure your place and take advantage of the price reduction.
