The Spatial Ecology and Telemetry Working Group provides an opportunity for TWS members to address issues of concern to the GIS community and to advance their own skills and understanding of GIS, remote sensing, and telemetry technologies. The Working Group functions as a clearinghouse of information and expertise in the area of GIS, remote sensing, and telemetry for The Wildlife Society Council, TWS sections and chapters, and individual TWS members. The Working Group includes, but is not limited to, GIS users, remote sensing specialists, cartographers, and landscape ecologists.
