The Society for Conservation GIS

The Society for Conservation Geographic Information Systems (SCGIS) works to assist conservationists worldwide in using GIS through communication, networking, scholarships, and training. The ESRI Conservation Program (ECP) helped found the Society and continues to support its growth and development. Here you will find SCGIS projects and resources from ECP, but please also visit the official SCGIS site. (Photo credits: Charles Convis, )
