Ben W

My background is in horticulture & botany. Since 2002 I have been employed at Darwin Botanic Gardens, mainly in nursery & records management. I have also been involved in vegetation surveys & threatened species monitoring. My current role is focussed on conservation seed banking which includes collection of seeds, identification & processing of herbarium voucher specimens, data management; seed biology, storage characteristics, germination protocols and dormancy and ex situ conservation of threatened plant species. In 2015 I began teaching myself to use QGIS; initially for managing and analysing spatial data for seed collecting projects, visualising collecting localities for target species, planning field trips and producing maps for use in the field. Since then the GIS bug has bitten hard and I have become avid about trying to expand my knowledge and abilities in all aspects of GIS. Currently my main interest is developing geospatial tools with PyQgis and PyQt.
