GIS and GPS technologies enable the mapping of species, which can be used as a practical management tool as well as for interpretation and promoting public understanding of nature conservation. This combined GIS-GPS weekend workshop offers a unique insight into both technologies and how they link together. You will be able to use both a hand held GPS unit and open source (free!) GIS software to map and record biodiversity data. You will also be able to cascade your learning to co-workers (extending the reach of the training) – and directly use your new skills as a volunteer and/or in the workplace with immediate effect.
