What we're looking for
The Conservation Data Management Unit (CDMU) oversee all aspects of mapping and data management at RSPB. We are looking for a volunteer with a strong interest in maps and data, who would like to further develop their GIS and data management skills by helping to manage our species records and collate data from reserve maps. Most of our data are stored in our internal mapping system Merlin. Your role will involve working with species data collected from our reserves and conservation projects - digitising data from paper surveys and organising spreadsheets, so they can be easily imported to Merlin. You will also be collating data from reserve management plan maps and using GIS software to prepare it for import to Merlin. It is important that all our data are available in an electronic format and are shared within the RSPB, so they can be used for research, day to day reserve management and for informing development.
