An introduction to the GenGIS software for analysis of biodiversity data
GenGIS is free and open source software designed to integrate biodiversity data with a digital map and information about geography and habitat.
This workshop is targeted to researchers who wish to visualise and analyse datasets that have geographic, habitat and biodiversity information, whether arising from direct observations or molecular sequence-based approaches.
Researchers with phylogeographic or otherwise clustered datasets are particularly encouraged to attend.
The workshop will begin with a demonstration of the features of GenGIS using a range of existing datasets. After a short break, attendees will be invited to work up their own datasets in GenGIS, with help from the presenters, or continue exploring the advanced features of the software.
Attendees need to bring their own Windows or Macintosh laptops, preinstalled with GenGIS.
