October is recognized as national "adopt a shelter dog" month. Not surprisingly, GIS technology is being employed to help lower the population of pups in shelters. GIS can be utilized for mapping locations of animals. It lets users observe various data sets in a manner which provides greater insight into their community's animals and their needs; that allows for a more productive use of resources.
With this new 3D map, oceanographers, scientists, conservationists, and more can track ecosystems in unprecedented detail. This tool, which can divide the water masses of oceans into precise, detailed categories can help conservation efforts, as it maps data that shows why marine animals live where they do. This can help track which parts of the ocean will be most habitable for marine life - and thus more necessary to protect.
