The availability of cheap, handheld GPS receivers has brought the ability to collect high quality spatial data within the reach of almost every biologist. However, if wish to record biological data that can be used in a GIS project, you need to ensure that your GPS receiver is set up correctly before you start collecting your data. Using a GArmine eTrex for illustration, this video shows how to set up a GPS receiver to collect GIS compatible biological data. This follows on from tip #10 in this series, which shows how to transfer data between a GPS receiver and a GIS project.

This video is presented by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, author of 'GIS For Biologists: A Practical Introduction For Undergraduates', and is brought to you by GIS In Ecology (www.GISinEcology.com), the world leader in providing GIS training for biologists by biologists.
