Remote Sensing and GIS

Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a growing research area involving the use of spatial information systems to investigate, measure and analyse large landscapes.

Increasingly, we are investigating changes over large parts of the world, in different ecosystems. Understanding how and why large scale changes are occurring across the landscape is critical for the management of environments and informing relevant policy.

Such large scale changes, particularly to vegetation communities, can provide understanding of some of the pressures on dependent animals. There are more and more sophisticated tools for investigating our environments at a landscape scale.
