Spatial information systems (SIS) is a term that describes a wide diversity of concepts, techniques, and technologies related to the capture, management, display and analysis of spatial information. It encompasses technologies such as geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), remote sensing, and relational database management systems (RDBMS), which were once relatively independent but increasingly have been merging into cohesive, integrated systems.

Keywords: spatial information systems (SIS), wildlife ecology
