Read more about GIS and Remote Sensing.

In order to manage the complex issues affecting the nation's MPAs, managers often turn to technology for help in understanding and analyzing the resources and environments of their MPAs. MPA managers and scientists are increasingly using geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing to map and analyze the resources under their jurisdiction.
