Measuring Landcover Change and its Impact on Endangered Species: September 11-15 2006

Spaces still available!


This one-week advanced GIS and remote sensing course provides Conservation biologists and wildlife managers an opportunity to learn how GIS and remote sensing can be used to assess the conservation status of endangered species. Each participant is provided with his or her own desktop computer for all lab exercises. During the hands-on exercises participants will use the Internet, ArcView, ArcView Spatial Analyst, ERDAS Imagine, Fragstats, and other spatial analysis programs. Instructors will lead participants step-by-step through the processes of:

* conducting a regional conservation assessment using GIS to determine critical conservation areas for an endangered species

* acquiring multi-date satellite imagery used to quantify land cover change and map the extent of remaining habitat

* using landscape analysis to determine optimal landscape configurations for conserving an endangered species.
