Data analysts and mappers take all the information that has been collected, analyse it and present it in ways that are easy to understand, often as maps showing the distribution (and possibly condition or abundance) of different habitats and species. They can also use information to model different scenarios and show what the effects of different ways of managing the area might do to the animals and plants that live there. 

Data analysts and mappers are crucial in efforts to help nature recover from decades of habitat loss. Whilst they may have done an ecology or environmental management degree they are more likely to have a strong IT background and be good at using different types of software. 

Data analysts and mappers typically work in the private or public sector or for industry, although some NGOs also have opportunities available. Find out more and filter job profiles by sector below or browse all data and mapping job profiles.
