>>  Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are commonly applied when geographical aspects of research on animal migrations, habitat selection, population monitoring or results of similar projects are to be visualized. GIS also is an important tool to analyse such results in connection with climate data, vegetation data, topography, satellite images etc..

GIS for your wildlife projects

For our clients we have employed GIS applications (preferably the desktop applications ArcGIS and ArcView) in a number of ways: We used it for the analysis of data from terrestrial and satellite tracking and from ecological studies; we also applied it for visualizing the respective results in conference presentations, in publications and in the internet. And last not least we used GIS as a tool to facilitate the field work during expeditions, which were conducted to follow transmitter tagged animals during their migration.

We offer services regarding GIS application in the following fields of research:

-  Animal migrations and movements;
-  Ecological studies;
-  Monitoring;
-  Reintroduction projects;
-  Surveys and censuses of species and populations;
-  Protected area planning and management;
-  and many others.
