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, distribution of species and their habitats as well as threats. Therefore, 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.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • To introduce participants to the principles of GIS and Remote Sensing
  • To introduce participants to concepts of wildlife management and conservation
  • To expose participants to data capture, input, manipulation and display by GIS
  • To introduce participants to GPS/GNSS systems
  • To explain to the participants GIS database requirement and development for wildlife management and conservation
  • To introduce participants to the application GIS and Remote Sensing techniques in wildlife management and conservation
  • To develop sound basis of understanding applications of GIS and RS in Wildlife management and conservation through case studies
