If you have wanted to learn about distance sampling, but have not been 
able to attend one of our workshops, those workshop materials are now 
available online.

We have 21 videos of our lectures described by workshop instructors here 
in St Andrews.  There are also PDFs of the lectures.  In addition, there 
are 12 exercises, complete with description, data and discussion of 
solutions.  There are narrated demonstrations of working with the 
distance sampling software, Distance.


We have plans for covering additional content by adding to the online 
offering.  In future, there may also be live webinars working through 
exercises and datasets.

We are anxious for you to try the course and provide feedback to us.  We 
hope having these materials on line will promote best practices and 
assist in management of wildlife populations around the world.
