High-resolution imaging has allowed scientists to produce the first full count of Antarctica's emperor penguins...
Before this, there was no way to to gather reliable penguin statistics. Geospatial technologies are now providing us the tools to teach us more about the biogeography of penguins. The applications of geospatial technologies are endless.
S.C: I thought this was really cool. It's awesome what science can really do for us. They can use this information to study the aspect of the animal-environment relationship. Now, if we can do this with penguins, why can't we do it with people as well? we could have a more accurate population count and event see exactly where people are living or not living and more about how humans use the land around them. studies like this can reveal so much in the long run.
