Understanding spatial data related to the environment could provides valuable insights for a better decision-making and facilitating effective environmental management and conservation efforts.
Habitat Mapping and Conservation
By analyzing satellite imagery and GIS data, researchers can identify and map important habitats, endangered species distributions, and biodiversity hotspots. This information guides conservation planning, including the establishment of protected areas and wildlife corridors.
Facilitate hazard mapping and risk assessment in natural disaster preparedness, response, and recovery such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and earthquakes.
Natural Resource Management
Managing natural resources sustainably by monitoring and assessing the availability, quality, and use of resources such as forests, water bodies, agricultural lands, and minerals. This information aids in resource planning, optimizing land use, and mitigating the impact of resource extraction on the environment.
