Episode 2: Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is an approach to conservation challenges with solutions that aid in the decision making process critical for conservation and sustainability. In this episode we chat with Kellee Koenig, Sr. GIS Manager and Cartographer, at the Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science at Conservation International, about the basics of GIS as well as business applications of GIS in the real world.
