Mapping Wildlife Habitat and Migration
This event is perfect for anyone interested in wildlife, biology, or environmental studies, and the ways we can use GIS/mapping to protect animals and their habitat. We'll be hearing from two presenters about how they used geospatial tech to visualize wildlife data. 1. Dan Ford (https://twitter.com/danjford) of Azavea will present the process he used to make a statewide wildlife habitat dataset of 1 million polygons accessible in the NJ Wildlife Habitat Finder app. Try out the app here: https://njwildlife.azavea.com/ Dan works on geospatial applications and data analysis projects for organizations aiming to have high-impact on communities. 2. Brian Jacobs (http://briantjacobs.com/) of National Geographic will talk about his recent project "Billions of Birds Migrate: Where do they go?". Preview the project here: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/03/bird-migration-interactive-maps/ Brian works on mapping and journalism projects that use dynamic visualization techniques to help bring the stories to life.
