Technology is a fundamental part of our every day lives, whether it is making a telephone call, traveling to a meeting, or typing a report. The same holds true for protected area design, management and assessment —there is a wide range of technologies that can help improve nearly every aspect of protected area management.
Over the past decade, technologies for protected areas has become increasingly sophisticated, including the use of computers, software, remotely-sensed data, global positioning systems (GPS), digital cameras and other types of equipment and data. Such technologies can play a key role in protected area management, but in many places, these technologies are not widely available, are too expensive, or are too difficult to use.
The goal of this module is to provide you with an overview of appropriate technology and its relationship to protected area planning, management, assessment and monitoring.
