This  page is intended to provide those already signed up for the workshops with some  useful information. More information is added regularly in the run-up to the  workshops.

  • One major component of the workshop is the computer sessions, in which you will learn how to use the distance sampling software Distance. We will be using the latest version of Distance. Participants are welcome to bring their own laptop computer, although there are machines available in the workshop classroom. Please make sure your laptop meets the minimum requirements for loading and running Distance: 64 MB RAM; at least 40MB spare disk space; 800×600 screen resolution and Windows XP or newer. More information about program Distance.
      • If you’re keen, you may want to have a look at a previous edition of the distance sampling reference book, which is available on-line.
      • If you are planning on bringing some of your own data to the workshop, you should read about how to prepare your data for use in Distance.


If  you have any questions that are not addressed here, please contact the workshop administrator (telephone  information and address on workshop main page).
