Abstract

Preserving biodiversity especially concerning of the wildlife management of endangered animals has been one the main agenda in ensuring sustainable landscape development. Among other such an approach can be benefited using integrated remote sensing and GIS technologies. This paper reports a study on integration of remote sensing and GIS with selected ecology model for determination of biodiversity indices. This includes the estimation of species richness, evenness, and diversity. This study also evaluates Biodiversity extension of the SuperGIS system. Medium and fine satellite imageries are main data used for this study, apart from historical ancillary data and information collected from various related organizations. The relative abundance of the species was acquired based on the camera trap observation conducted in selected forest reserves in Peninsular Malaysia. Correlation study of the three indices with respect to spatial parameters derived from satellite imagery, including reflectance, temperature, and vegetation indices are also examined together with significant biotic, abiotic and topographic factors. Highest significant factors are eventually selected in modeling and predicting species diversity of selected area.
