The most recent meeting of the San Francisco Estuary Geospatial Workgroup featured Pete Kauhanen and Lawrence Sim of SFEI's Environmental program. This meeting focused on emerging technologies for visualizing the changing Bay around us. Presenters discussed new data, tools, and approaches that are helping inform regional natural resource management. Lawrence Sim shared the Landscape Profile Tool found in EcoAtlas, discussing its many broad applications in helping wetland restoration practitioners and resource managers to understand the landscape context for any past, current, or prospective activities.
Members from the Institute's Environmental Informatics program also sit on the steering committee for the San Francisco Estuary Geospatial Workgroup, which serves as a gathering point for geospatial practitioners, scientists, and technologists who present on a diverse set of topics in the geospatial domain including sea level rise, wildlife conservation, and remote sensing. The steering committee also features staff from BCDC, NOAA, SFSU, and Applied Technology & Science.
