Online workshop: Practical design and simulation to optimise distance sampling surveys, 28-31 August 2023 

Thanks to those who have already registered for the design and simulation workshop. There are places still available, but registration closes 14 August 2023. 

Good survey design is critical for obtaining reliable results in distance sampling surveys and meeting survey objectives. This workshop expands on the basic theory provided in our introductory workshops to demonstrate how our latest software can be used to generate optimal survey designs while respecting budgetary and logistical constraints. We will demonstrate survey design using our R package dssd, and investigate design optimisation and the implications of deviations from our design assumptions using our latest simulation package dsims. We will also demonstrate the use of QGIS to obtain requisite input information. 

Further information and how to register can be found at:
