Upcoming GIS Courses From GIS In Ecology

21 May

GIS In Ecology will be running two courses in August 2015. These courses will be held at our regular venue in Glasgow City Centre in Scotland. The two courses which we will be running are:

An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology (17 – 19 August 2015): This is a three day course aimed at GIS beginners and it provides a practical introduction to using GIS in marine biology. It will be taught by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, the founder of GIS In Ecology, and author of An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology. It is primarily aimed at users of ESRI’s ArcGIS software (other courses are available for QGIS users). This course costs £395 per person (or £300 for students, the unwaged or those working for registered charities). You can find out more about this course by clicking here.

An Introduction To Species Distribution Modelling In The Marine Environment (20 – 21 August 2015): This is a two day course, which follows immediately after the introductory GIS course, provides an introduction to all aspects of running a successful species distribution modelling study in the marine environment, including practical sessions which will work through a species distribution modelling (SDM) project from start to finish. It is aimed at those with at least a basic knowledge of GIS (such as that gained during the introductory course mentioned above) and it will be taught by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, the founder of GIS In Ecology. It is primarily aimed at users of ESRI’s ArcGIS software (for the GIS elements of the course), and R statistical software (for the modelling elements).

This course costs £295 per person (or £200 for students, the unwaged or those working for registered charities). The practical elements of this course will be based on An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology: Supplementary Workbook Three: Integrating GIS And Species Distribution Modelling, and those attending will receive a free copy of this book. You can find out more about this course by clicking here.

NOTE: This is not a statistics course, rather it concentrates on the practical elements which are needed to integrate GIS and SDM, and all the practical steps you need to take to complete an SDM project, regardless of the statistical approach you wish to use.

If you are interested in signing up for one both of these course, or would simply like some more information, please email info@GISinEcology.com with the subject line: August 2015 Courses.
