Esri Releases GIS for Science, Volume 3
New Book Showcases Applications of Location Intelligence for Conservation Initiatives
Species are the foundation of a healthy planet, and when they have the necessary space to thrive, all of Earth’s inhabitants benefit. This is a critical moment in human history when the effects of climate change are becoming manifest. So it is imperative to accelerate efforts worldwide to identify not just species at risk but also the areas of the planet that must be set aside and protected for long-term conservation of biodiversity.
“As biologists learn more and more about the biology and origins of Earth’s present-day fauna and flora, they will also create an even stronger armamentarium of scientific and practical geography.”
Geographic information system (GIS) technology has a crucial role to play in this effort. By integrating information and enabling collaboration across a global scale, it can help communities portray what is happening in the world and who and what will be affected—providing the map of what must be done. As part of its commitment to helping people apply these technologies to the goal of conservation, Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, is releasing GIS for Science, Volume 3: Maps for Saving the Planet.

The new book illustrates the use of GIS in rigorous scientific research to help chronicle and preserve life on Earth, highlighting a global mobilization to identify and map species at risk.
American biologist and naturalist and Pulitzer Prize winner E. O. Wilson notes in the new volume’s foreword, “As biologists learn more and more about the biology and origins of Earth’s present-day fauna and flora, they will also create an even stronger armamentarium of scientific and practical geography.”
Following the organization of previous volumes, GIS for Science, Volume 3 studies three parts—How Earth Works, How Earth Looks, and How We Look at Earth—followed by a section titled Training Future Generations of Scientists. The book details such subjects as preventing species extinctions, conserving ocean frontiers, artificial intelligence (AI) for geospatial analysis, and teaching spatial data science and deep learning. A section titled Technology Showcase rounds out the latest volume with a collection of vignettes of GIS technologies that help create new, systematic frameworks for scientific understanding.
