Conservation GIS

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups:
Organizers: Florencia Sangermano, Connor Bailey
Chairs: Connor Bailey


This paper session concerns applications of spatial analysis to conservation planning and natural resources management. We welcome papers focusing on Geographic Information Science, spatial analysis, spatial modeling, and remote sensing for biodiversity and ecosystems conservation.

Specific topics may include, but are not limited to:

1- Conservation planning
2- Habitat modeling
3- Ecosystem’s assessments
4- Habitat connectivity
5- Spatial tools in conservation.

We are interested in bridging academics and practitioners in Conservation GIS. Organizations are welcome to present their ongoing conservation projects showcasing how GIS is used to attain their goals.
