RSVP now for the February virtual GeoDC!
This month, we are co-hosting with our friends at the DC chapter of the Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS - https://scgis.org). It will be a great event! We will mix together the fascinating talks below with a variety of networking events so that you can meet the presenters and fellow conservation GIS enthusiasts!
John Cannon from Marstel-Day and Travis Wray From the U.S. Navy will talk about a GIS model to assess current pollinator habitat suitability based on landscape and local-scale factors such as surrounding landcover, proximity to water, forest edge, and habitat patch size and proximity to other habitat patches.
Abigail Krump from Blue Raster along with Lilian Pintea and Paul Mjema from the Jane Goodall Institute will talk about community science efforts for monitoring chimpanzees and threats to their habitats using the Python API for ArcGIS and scheduled Jupyter Notebooks to enrich Survey 123 data.
Adam Jenkins from Esri will present his views on GIS in 2022, including how has it changed to assist with conservation efforts and how we can explain GIS to people who might not understand its value and connection to conservation.
Brent Peterson from DC’s Department of Energy & Environment will take us through an historic photo and map journey of DC’s historic policy decisions related to wastewater and runoff. He will also talk about how massive engineering interventions and smarter planning policies have helped the Anacostia River make steady progress toward becoming a swimmable and fishable waterway.
We will see you online!
