It is aimed at those just starting to use GIS in their research and who have little or no existing knowledge of this subject area.

All the practical exercises will be done using a standard data set so you do not need to have your own data to do this course. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 12 people. The course will cost 395 per person (300 for students on production of a valid student card). To book a place, or for more information, contact [log in to unmask] 

At the end of the course, all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and completion. Each certificate is embossed with the GIS In Ecology official stamp to prevent its fraudulent reproduction. In addition, each certificate has its own unique identification number that we will record, along with your name, meaning that we can verify the authenticity of the certificates we issue (and the course you have completed) on request. 

To attend this course, you must have your own laptop computer and have a licensed copy of ArcGIS 9.3 or ArcGIS 10 software (ArcGIS 9.3 is the preferred software), and a licence for the ArGIS Spatial Analyst extension pre-installed on it. You can find information about how to get this software package at It addition, you will also need to have spreadsheet software, such as Excel, on your computer. 

Glasgow has great transport links and is within half a days travel by car or by fast train links from most cities in the UK.  For example, it can be reached in as little as 4h 30mins from London by train. It can also be reached by direct flights from many European cities and the flight time is generally under four hours.
