About this event

The course will be aimed at beginners who have never used QGIS and/or QField before, or those who would like a refresher. The course will teach people how to set up QGIS for common types of ecological surveys, including Phase 1 habitat surveys and protected species surveys, and how to use the QField app to carry out surveys in the field.

• A morning session (approximately 10:00 – 12:30, with Q&A and comfort break)

• An afternoon session (approximately 14:00 – 16:00 with Q&A and comfort break)

Although this course is aimed at beginners to QField, a good working knowledge of IT is essential.

What we will cover

The morning session will introduce participants to QGIS and QField and showcase some of the ways this software can be used for ecological surveys. Participants will learn how to set up a project in QGIS and create and format layers which will contain all types of survey data. This will include creating templates for Phase 1 habitat surveys using the JNCC mapping symbols/codes, designing and creating survey forms for species surveys, and setting up file directories for storing and exporting surveys.

The afternoon session will introduce participants to carrying out surveys in the field digitally with QField. Participants will learn how to transfer projects between QGIS and QField, how to use QField to collect different types of records, and how to sync completed surveys back to their computer. We will also look at basic ways to present your survey data in QGIS.

Course instructor - Jess Mason is the owner and lead Ecologist behind Acasta Ecology Services, and has worked within conservation and ecology roles since 2017. Jess frequently undertakes GIS projects for partner ecological consultancies, and provides a wide range of maps, figures and analysis to support ecological surveys and reports.
