22 March 2005

The Smithsonian National Zoological Park's Conservation and Research Center is offering a course in the near future; "An Introduction to the use of GIS & Remote Sensing in Conservation and Wildlife Management" is scheduled to take place April 18-22, 2005

This interecting course offers hands-on experience in collection of data, GIS analysis of data, and map-making using the latest ESRI (ArcGIS) and ERDAS software.

Description:

This short course will provide wildlife managers with a working knowledge about the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing to the monitoring and management of wildlife and forest vegetation.
Exercises in establishing locations with a Global Positioning System (GPS), data input into a GIS, and spatial analysis techniques for GIS will provide hands-on and real world experience during the course.  Based on examples about habitat selection in songbirds and white-tailed deer, course participants will learn how to:

- Collect GIS data in the field using survey techniques and GPS.
- Differentially correct GPS data.
- Input GPS data into GIS.
- Input field data into GIS.
- Use GIS for management of large data sets from multiple sources.
- Design and perform analysis using GIS data and spatial analysis techniques.
- Integrate data with ancillary data, such as satellite imagery, aerial photography, and government agency databases.
