Getting Started

The Mapping Component

Remember, that in order to complete the practical mapping component you will need to either have ArcGIS installed (this is a paid-for-licence) or be using QGIS. Our practical component works on both platforms.

Here are the necessary links:

QGIS: https://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html

ArcGIS: https://www.esri.com/en-gb/store

Emailing you the shapefiles

Once you are fully enrolled, we will email you the components needed to complete the practical leopard mapping excercise. This can be done throughout the 4 weeks and, should you encounter any problems, you will be able to ask our GIS specialist, Jonathan,by email as well as any other questions that may interest you.

Download Win-Zip to open the files
