Geographic Information Systems


The Geographic Information Systems, commonly known as GIS, are no longer simply a computer tool to visualize spatial phenomena and variables. They have become an integral discipline of analytical of geo-spatial information for many decision-making programs.

GIS has made an important contribution to biodiversity conservation and its very diverse fields, in which the study of the distribution and quantification of species, ecosystems and landscapes are of special interest.

The GIS Biodiversity Laboratory (SIGBio) cuts across all phases of INBio’s core process: the gathering, processing or analysis, and sharing of information, in order to solve complex problems in planning and management of specific areas.
