The CBC’s Biodiversity Informatics Program applies information technologies (IT) to collect, organize, and analyze biological and environmental data from expeditions, natural history collections, and databases as well as data from remote sensing instruments and mathematical modeling to strengthen capacity to understand biodiversity data and address conservation issues.
We develop new methods, software programs, and training resources to help manage, analyze, and interpret the information. All products we create are released with open access licenses so students, educators, researchers, practitioners or the general public can freely use them.
CBC-developed scripts and software for remote sensing.
Remote Sensing guides have been designed by the CBC that explain how to acquire remotely sensed imagery, how to view imagery, strengths and limitations of remote sensing, and a host of other interesting topics.
Interactive tools to help illustrate basic remote sensing concepts.
