GIS at Ducks Unlimited Canada
“Geographic knowledge plays a role in nearly every decision we make at Ducks Unlimited Canada”. When Guan saw this statement, she knew she needed to hear their stories. For decades, Ducks Unlimited Canada has been using GIS. Initially it was to map wetlands, but it’s gone far beyond that. They use it for research into waterfowl, and study the effect habitat conservation has on water quality and even to raise funds. Guan invited Andrew Pratt - Manager of Information Technology at Ducks Unlimited Canada to share the story of how they leverage GIS across departments.
