Course: GIS and Species Distribution Modelling

Kode Banner/Iklan Anda Di sini !
GIS In Ecology will be running the following introductory courses for marine biologists in the use of GIS and Species Distribution Modelling in June and August 2014.
 
1. An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology, 23rd – 25th June 2014, Glasgow, Scotland: This three day course covers the basics of how to use GIS in marine biological research and is aimed at those who have little or no experience in using GIS, but who wish to learn. The course is taught by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, author of the ‘An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology’ series of books, and is taught in the type of language marine biologists will be familiar with. It consists of a series of background and practical sessions which will provide all the information needed to start successfully using GIS in marine biology. Cost: £395 (£300 for students, unwaged and those working for NGOs). More information on this course can be found at: http://www.gisinecology.com/Training_Course_Glasgow_June_2014.htm. If you have any questions, or wish to book a place email: cdmacleod@GISinEcology.com
 
2. An Introduction To Species Distribution Modelling In The Marine Environment, 26th – 27th June 2014, Glasgow, Scotland: This two day course follows on from the introductory GIS course and provides all the information required to start using Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) in the marine environment in a practical and biologically meaningful way. In a series of background sessions, case studies and practical exercises, it covers how to create data layers of species distribution, how to select and create raster data layers of environmental variables, such as water depth, how to join information on species distribution to environmental information, how to export data from a GIS project for analysis in a statistical package, such as R, how to create spatial visualisations based on a statistical model and how to validate the spatial predictions of a model. The practical sessions work through a species distribution modelling project based on real marine survey data from start to finish. Cost: £295 (£200 for students, unwaged and those working for NGOs). More information on this course can be found at: http://www.gisinecology.com/Training_Course_SDM_June_2014.htm. If you have any questions, or wish to book a place email: cdmacleod@GISinEcology.com. Note: This course requires a basic knowledge of GIS and how to use ArcGIS GIS software (as covered in the above introductory GIS course).
 
3. An Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology, 11th – 13th August 2014, Glasgow, Scotland: In association with the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) in Glasgow, Scotland in August 2014, GIS In Ecology will be running the above ‘Introduction To Using GIS In Marine Biology’ in the three days prior to the start of the conference. This allows those attending the conference to also attend this introductory GIS course while they are in Glasgow. For more information, email cdmacleod@GISinEcology.com. To book a place, visit the IMCC website: http://www.conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc-2014.
 
4. An Introduction To Species Distribution Modelling In The Marine Environment, 19th – 20th August 2014, Glasgow, Scotland: In association with the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) in Glasgow, Scotland in August 2014, GIS In Ecology will be running the above ‘Introduction To Using Species Distribution Modelling In The Marine Environment’ in the two days immediately after the end of the conference. This allows those attending the conference to also attend this introductory species distribution modelling course while they are in Glasgow. For more information, email cdmacleod@GISinEcology.com. To book a place, visit the IMCC website: http://www.conbio.org/mini-sites/imcc-2014. Note: This course requires a basic knowledge of GIS and how to use ArcGIS GIS software (as covered in the above introductory GIS course).
