Training on Practical Training on Application of GIS and Remote Sensing in Wildlife and Conservancy Management
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) play an important role in conservancy and wildlife management since the concerned resources is spatial in nature. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) involve collecting/capturing, storing, processing, manipulating, analyzing, managing, retrieving and displaying geo-referenced data. Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. Wildlife management requires reliable and consistent information on the abundance and distribution of species as well as their habitats and threats. The application of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information system (GIS) in the wildlife management and conservation aids in data collection and analysis of wildlife abundance, their distribution as well as providing data suitable for conservation planning and management.
