How can you adapt to future trading conditions? React quickly to changing circumstances by using FREE open source GIS software.

We’ll teach you how to move on from Magic or paper maps and get the information into QGIS. Making spatial data accessible to you and your clients is future-proofing your business.

No previous experience of GIS is required, but some experience of using spatial data would be beneficial.

This course will introduce spatial data and show you how to import and display spatial data, keeping your records tidy without the need for constant internet access. We will show you how to digitise trees, hedges and field boundaries. Work out how many trees you have; hedgerow lengths and how to divide land for different crop rotations.

Be confident saving and printing information to share with colleagues.
