Knowing how to handle spatial data is a fundamental pre-requisite to a host of applications and analytical techniques in conservation science. This workshop will try and equip you with powerful yet user friendly open source software - Quantum GIS. Basics of handling vector data will be covered. During the workshop, we will explore working with existing datasets and also introduce you to fundamentals of generating your own datasets. This will be followed by utilising the power of GIS for spatial data visualisation, queries and presenting results.
Participants are encouraged to register onto the WGP to access the materials and interact with the course instructors through this facility. Attending this course will make you eligible for more advanced workshops offered by FERAL through the next couple of years.
