    Abstract

    In the universe, every phenomenon that occurs has a spatial dimension. An analysis of these phenomena without a spatial dimension is incomplete. Spatial information should form an integral part of the studies leading to the management of living natural resources. The inherent data linkages become more clear when spatial dimension is added. In the past, integration of spatial data to analytical process was not that easy as the required expertise and skill were possessed by very few and software options necessary for the analysis was limited and costly. In the last decade, there has been an explosion in the spatial data realm in terms of software tools, data collection procedure and analysis, human expertise available for handling spatial data and how spatial information is used in the day to day life. Spatial information has been extensively used in almost all the fields of study, be it natural sciences, social sciences, archaeology, surveying, marketing and particularly in fish resource mapping elsewhere in the world. It shows the importance of geographic information system (GIS) in the present world. The strength of GIS is its ability to integrate data from different sources and carryout spatial analysis to arrive at meaningful conclusions which otherwise would not be possible.
