Introduction to spatial ecology and analyses in GIS – 5 day workshop

Course Description

This course will teach spatial analyses using the open-sourced software QGIS (and R, time permitting) which are interchangeable with ESRI’s ArcGIS. By the end of this workshop, students will have experience synthesizing and analyzing point, polygon, and raster data. No experience in spatial analyses is necessary.
