Map habitat locations of endangered animals & keep track of their living

Wilderness without wildlife is just scenery
-Lois Crisler

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) states that endangered species are the species of plant or animal that are seriously at the risk of extinction. In this time of data revolution, data analytics plays a huge role in the field of environmental science and atmospheric studies. Keeping the record of the habitat locations of endangered species and observing the variations in their environmental factors will help the authorities to study the causes that threaten the life of these species. These observations can be further useful to prevent global extinction by rehabilitating their populations and restoring habitats. In the article we create point vector data in GIS tool.

GIS technology is an effective tool for managing, analyzing, and visualizing wildlife data to target areas where monitoring and managing is required. GIS technology helps in tracking the migration patterns, mapping biodiversity, and habitat suitability models which provide analysis for animals to locate their habitat locations in suitable environmental conditions. 

There are a lot of GIS applications available but IGISMap meets the requirements of the user to perform various GIS operations such as creating point, line, or polygon data; point to polygon conversion; splitting and merging the polygon; conversion between different file formats and much more. Consider a wildlife conservationist who wants to map the habitat locations of endangered animals in India and keep track of their numbers and other environmental factors of their living such as temperature, precipitation, food, water, etc. Create Point Data tool of IGISMap can be used to plot locations and point objects as a point vector data model.

Map habitat locations of endangered species

Users can rely on the Create Point data tool of IGISMap application to plot the habitat locations of endangered animals, like the following.

More information based on these locations can be added as attributes in the datatable. Attribute information in the datatable can be queried using the Proximity Analysis tool of IGISMap. Let’s look into the steps on how the habitat location map can be created and further used for the protection of endangered animals.

To navigate to the IGISMap Create Point Vector Data tool, click the below link

https://map.igismap.com/add-points

Add the Name and Attribute Fields for Your GIS Data

In this section, users can add the name of the data as “Endangered animals”. Next step is to add attribute fields to store other information about the habitat location point. Here lets add Animal, Place and Number as the attribute fields.

The default value added for the field Number can be given as Null. Thus if the attribute value to this field is left blank for any location, Null will be saved. Click Save to add the data information of habitat locations of tigers.
