GIS - Geographical Information Systems - 20th October

Bristol Naturalists' Society is organising a lecture on Wednesday October 20th
Geographical Information Systems
Dr. Andrew Skellern from Bath Spa University
Wills Memorial Building, Bristol at 7.30 p.m.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used to collect, transform and display spatial data from the real world. Spatial data describe objects both in terms of their location (for example: grid reference, longitude and latitude) and their attributes (for example: age, ownership, species). Remote sensing is a subject related to GIS. It is the science of observation of the Earth's surface using images obtained from sensors on board aircraft and satellites.
Talks take place in S H Reynolds lecture theatre, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol, BS8 1RJ.
