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. By the end of this course the participants will be able to: Understand the principles of GIS and Remote Sensing Understand the concepts of wildlife management and conservation Describe and utilize spatial data, GIS and remote sensing in conservancy and wildlife management. Competently carry out data capture, input, manipulation and display by GIS Work competently with GPS/GNSS systems Understand the GIS database requirement and development for wildlife management and conservation Apply the GIS and Remote Sensing techniques in wildlife management and conservation This course is ideal for professionals who require knowledge and skills on the use of GIS and RS in their organization in the field of conservancy and wildlife management.
