Introduction to remote sensing and GIS for ecological applications 
(IRMS01)

When - 27 November 2017 - 1 December 2017
Where - Margam Discovery Centre, Magram Park, Port Talbot , SA13 2UA 
United Kingdom
Who - This course will be delivered by Prof. Duccio Rocchini and Dr. 
Luca Delucchi

Course Overview:
This course is highly relevant to people studying any spatial aspect of 
marine mammals. The use of remote sensing data is increasing and with it 
the sophistication in its applications making it a valuable resource for 
marine mammal researchers. The course will deal with different aspects 
related to the use of remote sensing and GIS in spatial ecology by using 
the Free and Open Source Software GRASS GIS coupled with R. By the end 
of this 5-day practical course, attendees will have the capacity to deal 
with ecological patterns and processes by using GIS and remote sensing 
algorithms. The increasing availability of open ecological and 
geographical data through networks such as the Global Biodiversity 
Information Facility (GBIF, http://www.gbif.org) or the Data Observation 
Network for Earth (DataONE) federated data archive 
(http://www.dataone.org) makes it increasingly possible to test 
cutting-edge ecological theories. In using a shared open-source code for 
testing these ecological theories, researchers can be sure that their 
results are reliable and also that the code they have used is robust. 
Attendees will be able to process spatial and ecological data by free 
and open source algorithms. The course will be mainly practical, but 
grounded on robust theory. All the analyses will be performed in GRASS 
GIS and the code will be shared with attendees.

Day 1:
 Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing concepts. a theoretical 
introduction to the main GIS and RS concepts.
Day 2: 
GRASS GIS: Introduction to the GRASS GIS software; Open source 
coding; main GIS analysis possibilities.
Day 3:
 Spatial Ecology and application of RS algorithms to solve 
ecological issues.
Day 4:
 Use the GRASS GIS temporal framework to analyse big data.
Day 5:
 Throughput scripting in bash and python.
