Mobiele GIS

Information Systems and Statistics

GIS in the field

At Bureau Waardenburg we use Mobile GIS, GPS and DGPS (a pocket PC together with a GPS receiver) to collect data in the field. Data can inculde details about habitats as well as species observations.

Data collected directly in the field can be mapped directly and more efficiently than with paper maps in the field. Other advantages include less inputting time and a reduction in the potential of transcription errors during the transfer of mapped data.
