We provide technical expertise in the ways in which GIS techniques can be used in
research and resource management projects that require spatial data. We centralize
the access to digital cartography, mainly of Andalusia, but also of other areas
of Spain and the World. We provide advice on GIS software and procedures, remote
sensing sensors available, satellite or airborne images, and request procedures.
We can also indicate where to look, and how to order digital cartography or remote
sensing data for a particular research project. We manage a remote sensing data
bank that holds over 300 satellite and airborne images of the Doñana area. The satellite
data bank holds also digital cartography and remote sensing data from other areas
in Andalusia and the World. This image bank shows the change dynamics of the landscape,
vegetation and ecosystem parameters such as hydroperiod, productivity etc., over
the last 30 years. We provide expertise on the use of GPS, differential GPS, and
on the use of new technologies for field data recording. We have provided training
courses to researchers, students and technical staff on the use of GPS, PDA and
field recording software.

The LAST-EBD is a central service of the Doñana Biological Station that can be used
by all the staff, and whose chief mission is to provide access to remote sensing
data, digital cartography, and training in GIS use to EBD staff.
