Habitat Maps provide a better understanding of the extent of species serving to establish sensible approaches to conservation needs and to facilitate better management of the environment in relation to planned developments or infrastructure works.
Quite often, paper based inspection forms and a manual data entry process are still used but we know that capturing habitat attributes can take a long time on site and that results can sometimes be inaccurate. GeoGrafi-M can help with this. Download more details here.
Geografi-M runs on Windows Mobile and Android. It can work with any mapping grade GNSS receiver, laser rangefinders, or other external device. It is capable of delivering between submetre and decimetre positioning accuracy in real-time onto your digital OS map along with all capture of other attributes such as dominant and indicator vegetation.
MGISS recommends this solution for Ecologists. For example GeoGrafi-M software running on the Panasonic Toughpad or the Mobile Mapper 50 combined with Arrow GNSS series or the Trimble R1 would be ideal for Ecologists needing to capture habitat attributes thereby reducing their time on site and improving accuracy.
