How GIS Mapping boosts Conservation efforts

GIS is helping a lot of different industries, animal conservation is just one of them. From farmers to scientists, find out how everyone is taking advantage of GIS improvementss

Maps were one such thing from the time it first came into existence that everyone needed it to resolve or ease some of their tasks. The nature of maps were so versatile that anyone could make a good use out of it, for instance, a farmer could use it to map his fields and water reserves nearby to get a better understanding of the crops he should yield for a better profit similarly cities municipal can use to map children density in their area to decide where the new school should be built.

When maps can be of help in a number of industries, one such industry that can really take a lot out of maps is conservation industry. In conservation industry, the main task is usually to monitor the growth or depletion of the target species and then take the necessary steps that would ensure the survival or growth.

In a conservation facility there are usually a number of experts that put in their knowledge to yield an effective campaign but one such technology addition that most conservation organisation requires is the use of GIS maps.

GIS stands for Geographical Information System, where a map is loaded with features of a geographical area, multiple information that can be turned off or on  and can be compared with other statistics which makes a decision more calculative, secure and reasonable.

Usually animals that are being tracked in forest conservation are placed with a GPS tracker that track its movement and transmits to a server which than plots the movement on a map. Any professional GIS service can build a map that will show the movement over time.

In a conservation facility, maps can prove to be a game changer, if geologists can see the changes in vegetation, changes in rainfall over a region or the movement of the conserved species from one location to another it might prove to be vital information for them.
