Mapping and route planning
A critical component of Tepui Watch project determining spatial relationships between fauna, flora, and geography. We use georeferencing and GIS techniques to track both our camera traps and overflights to keep a record of where biodiversity hot spots on Auyan Tepui are. Using both satellite maps and overflights of Auyan, we are able to conduct advanced cartography of Auyan which has been previously unavailable. Over time, this will allow us to not only conduct a vegetational and faunal analysis of Auyan, but also monitor the effects of climate change on Tepui ecosystem dynamics. Currently, we are looking to expand our capacities with mounted camera rigs, and acquire higher resolution satellite images.
