Overview


Applying Science and Geospatial Technology to Solve Environmental Problems. The world is changing rapidly. The Earth is getting hotter, extreme weather events are becoming commonplace, and habitats and species are disappearing at unprecedented rates. This not only threatens natural habitats and biodiversity, but also our life support – think oxygen, food, health, soil and water, agriculture, and the economy. Overcoming these challenges requires innovative and sustainable solutions that benefit the environment and support the livelihoods of people. At MAPSS we believe that geospatial technology provides the ideal platform to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. Our strategy is to provide services and develop solutions that solve the problems affecting our environment. We combine what happens in the world, where it happens, and those affected into a single, scalable, and unified view that allows users to monitor change and implement insights.

Overview:

One of the major challenges facing environmental management today is bridging the science implementation gap. Although more data are collected now than ever before, it remains time consuming, expensive, and difficult to visualize and interpret these data. It is therefore not easy to turn raw data into practical, evidence-based management actions. Effective environmental management requires the definition of clear and realistic management goals, the development of plausible strategies to achieve those goals, monitoring to evaluate the relative merits and limitations of management strategies, and the iterative modification of management strategies to improve management outcomes . The evaluation of these management goals, strategies, limitations, and outcomes can only be as rigorous (and therefore as reliable) as the monitoring data that informs it i.e. good science lies at the heart of delivering effective outcomes. We develop custom tools that can help guide organisations to effectively collect, store, analyse, and view ecological data to ensure scientifically sound outputs that inform decision making.
