WILDislands at the Central European University

On Friday 18th the WILDisland project was presented within the "Introduction to Geospatial Analysis" course of the Environmental Systems Laboratory of the Central European University in Vienna, Austria for a second year in a row.

The aim of the presentation was to demonstrate to the new group of students how can even simple geospatial data processing be used for direct conservation of species and habitsts on field and how can maps and visual presentation of ideas assist decision making and environmental planning in practise.

 You can find the WILDisland map HERE. The WILDisland map presents the results of the first inventory of Danube islands: over 900 islands were identified along the Danube River which cover an area of more than 138,000 hectares.

We thank the Environmental Systems Laboratory of CEU for the invitation and since the Master students showed real interest, we hope that they will take over practical conservation and geospatial analysis in their future work! Furthermore, we are currently discussing ideas to actively host and involve CEU students in the WILDisland project, so stay tuned!
