: The paper deals with the tracking of an endangered Hawaiian bird (nene) and real time display of the GPS location in a GIS environment. The project has been implemented as a working prototype for investigating an integrated model for environmental research, which concentrates on the application spatial, and temporal analysis techniques to large-scale ecological data sets and includes satellite imagery and ground-based sensor data. The primary objective of the paper is to present the current state of the art for capturing and displaying live location information of a moving target in a wildlife environment.
