GIS & Mapping Project Highlights
Most people experience climate through the extremes. Crops are affected when temperatures drop below freezing, and we change our behavior when the day’s high is over 100° F. Thus, we assessed recent and future change in the extremes for the community of Austin, Texas.
As a companion to the book Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World: Ecology and Conservation, we created an interactive web mapping application to give readers a virtual tour of the ten biogeographically unique regions of the world featured in the book.
Leveraging Esri's data driven pages functionality with custom python scripts, we created a series of twelve maps to show the intrinsic potential of Coho salmon in the Rogue River Basin.
Using the 2014 National Climate Assessment as a guide, we applied the key messages to an interactive web map to show users what threats they may see in their region.
Is beaver introduction a viable option for the Cache la Poudre, Colorado region? We created a habitat suitability model in GIS based on existing peer-reviewed literature on dam-building beaver requirements.
The Geos Institute has created a series of maps for the Rogue Basin to aid aquatic biologists and land managers with restoration efforts.
