About this book

This book teaches the basic stages of mapping for ecological projects. It uses QGIS, an open-source system, as this is the most accessible platform to produce maps for reports. The book guides the beginner mapmaker through the production of maps for the day-to-day projects of ecologists working in consultancy. If you don't know where to start or how to use QGIS, this is the practical guide for you. There is no jargon, just everything you require to create the desired maps and to extract from them all the information that you'll need for reporting.

You will learn how to create several different sorts of maps frequently employed in ecological reports:
- basic survey map
- aerial imagery survey map
- designated sites map
- desk-study map
- protected species map
- habitats map

As a part of this, you will also discover how to download third-party maps and datasets, create your own data, geo-reference images and import GPX files into QGIS. Weblinks allow access to downloadable data for use in producing the maps described. The book also includes workflows that you can emulate for your own projects, ensuring that it will remain a helpful tool long after you have completed all the exercises.

Ideal for those working in ecological consultancy and conservation, as well as students with an understanding of ecology and surveying but no background or training in QGIS, this handy book will also be a great help to those needing to refresh their GIS skills and/or looking for workflows to follow.
