Introduction to GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing Using Quantum GIS

About
Basic knowledge of GIS, GPS and remote sensing are no longer “specialised” areas of expertise, they are essential tools for an ecologist or environmental scientist. Unfortunately, most courses in ecology and allied subjects don't provide a grounding in the subject. This workshop is an attempt to introduce the subject through hands on applications.By attending this course you will learn how to:Import, view, edit and manage spatially explicit data in a number of vector and raster formats.Manage attributes and data stored in tables.Create vector and raster data in appropriate projections.Analyse and manipulate vector data using geo-processing routines, database features, research and analysis tools.Use raster algebra and conduct basic image processing and classification.Manipulate digitial elevation models to extract terrain related informationUse a hand held GPS unit in conjuction with the GIS package for mapping an navigation.Make publication quality maps.
