Plant Diversity - Modules

Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are becoming increasingly important in the management of habitats and populations in landscape scale conservation. Furthermore, a range of potential employers frequently seek to take on individuals with GIS skills, e.g. in ecological consultancy.

Warburg Nature Reserve

This module introduces students from a range of backgrounds to the role of GIS in the assessment, monitoring and management of wild populations and habitats. A mixture of techniques are covered including data sources, data formats and input, data geocoding, database and map query, spatial overlay and interpolation, and map composition and digitisation of data.

The module is delivered in association with the West Country Rivers Trust to meet the standards and requirements of organisations demanding GIS skills.

This is a 10 credit module and the timetable slot is to be confirmed at the beginning of the course (usually just pre or post-Christmas), taught by Dr Graham Holloway and Dr Nick Paling.
