Thanks for your responses. Things are coming together and it looks like we'll have a one day seminar running in the midlands this summer/autumn. I'm aiming to have the price at under £100 per person for the day including lunch.


Format is likely to be an introduction to GIS in the morning, including some hands on time with different devices to try out out of the classroom. In the afternoon we will look at CAD and how it can be used to display accurate tree survey information particularly in relation to tree plans for BS5837 planning reports.


Will update this thread with more details soon!

Ok, here are the details:


Mapping Trees - an introduction CAD & GIS in Arboriculture

Accurately mapping trees and displaying the relevant information on plans is an essential part of modern arboricultural consultancy. With the rapid advance in GPS technologies, mobile computing and computer aided design software, many arboriculturists are left wondering where to start, exactly what is required and how much it will cost to begin producing high quality maps.


This new one day seminar is aimed at tree surveyors and consultants that wish to gain a better understanding of the concepts of CAD and GIS. The seminars will cover topics such as:

  • How GPS and GIS can streamline collecting data in tree surveys
  • What the available range of hardware and software available can do (and costs!)
  • How to display tree survey information required by BS5837 in AutoCAD.


The presentations will be delivered by two expert speakers: James England (GIS Solutions) and Mike Shilton (Keyscapes software). The morning session (GIS) will include time to try out a range of GPS devices and software and the afternoon session (CAD) will demonstrate how collected survey information can be presented using CAD. The day will include question and answer sessions, hot drinks and lunch.


Venue: Minerva Mill Innovation Centre, Station Road, Alcester, B49 5ET.

Time: 9.30am - 4.30pm.

Cost: £95 per delegate.


There is a downloadable booking form attached - you will need to email this to [email protected] :thumbup1:
