3 Introduction How I use GIS Recent work with GIS Research Teaching Future work with GIS Research Teaching Benefits to Plymouth Conclusion

4 How I Use GIS - My Manifesto!

5 Recent Work - Research Deciduous woodland Deciduous woodland Unimproved chalk grassland Unimproved chalk grassland Arable land Woodland or grassland? CONVERSION? Spatial Conflict Resolution

6 Recent Work - Research Current land useDesirable land use change, with qualifications Improved grassland a) If close to unimproved grassland: 1.convert to unimproved grassland; or 2.keep as improved grass to provide for stock on unimproved grass. b) If close to deciduous woodland: 1.convert to woodland; or 2.convert to scrub. c) If close to scrub: 1.convert to scrub; or 2.convert to unimproved grassland or woodland. Spatial Conflict Resolution
