GIS Helps Keep Wildlife on the Map
From Shannon Valdizon
Hundreds of years ago, elk were distributed across the entire U.S. Today, their range covers just a handful of states. The Nevada Department of Wildlife is working hard to preserve the elk population and other wildlife in their state so the story is not repeated, and GIS is a part of nearly every stage of the process. From Survey123 to QuickCapture, ArcGIS Online to Dashboards, Esri technology is instrumental for collecting and analyzing data on animals in near real time. It gives biologists more time to be biologists and not data managers, so they can focus on protecting wildlife for generations to come.
