Eurosite webinar: An introduction to QGIS for site managers
Following last week’s first webinar in a series of three around the theme of remote sensing, this second webinar focuses on the potential use of QGIS in the everyday tasks of a site manager. The purpose of the webinar is not to present a comprehensive overview of all the functions and possibilities of QGIS, but to give participants the confidence to jump into the world of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Even a basic proficiency in GIS can help a site manager gather and analyse available data, map certain features and communicate issues or results with other stakeholders.
By providing access to the basic terminology and some of the most useful functions, the aim of the webinar is to encourage site managers in exchanging experiences and advice, and to help better understand what options are at their disposal. A leaflet on QGIS was already developed by the Eurosite Economics and Ecosystem Services Working Group in 2019 and is available here.
