Geospatial Modeling with QGIS and R (Online)


Date and Time:

Monday, August 9, 2021, 9:00am to Friday, August 20, 2021, 11:59pm


COURSE DESCRIPTION: Analyses of wildlife home range and habitat use are used in wildlife-focused disciplines to inform population and habitat management practices. The geographical space used by animals is largely driven by habitat selection, where habitat can be described by spatially explicit site factors (e.g., land cover). Geospatial modeling is the process of synthesizing geographically referenced field measurements and spatial data layers representing those site factors. In this course, we will process raw point location data, estimate home ranges, and conduct habitat assessments using raster land cover data and the open-source software applications QGIS and R.

DATES: Begins August 9, 2021 (learn at your own pace over 2 weeks with instructor support)

COST: Early bird fee (ends June 1st): $550 professional / $450 student
