Wildlife Habitat Mapping

The Geomatics has been used to analyze the site suitability of wildlife habitats by taking the several parameters like the food, water and cover. The food and cover is derived from the RS Data and FWPs, the slope and aspect, the settlements and roads are derived from topomaps, the water is derived from topomaps and RS Data. With the help of other collateral information the various layers are integrated in GIS environment and the wildlife habitat suitability map is generated. It has been compared with the field census and matching to ground conditions. It is useful in analyzing the carrying capacity. The study is done mainly for ungulates and can be applied to other wild life.
