This session showcases innovative ways to create meaningful depictions of data that help us reveal patterns, identify concerns, and create useful tools for professionals of all types.

  • What Does Terrestrial Resilience to Climate Change Look Like for Natural Areas?
             Margaret Fields
    Using geophysical settings, landscape diversity and local connectedness, The Nature Conservancy has identified networks of resilient sites across the southeastern United States. These include models that measure a site’s physical complexity (landform variety, elevation range, and wetland density) and permeability (local connectedness and regional flow patterns). The metrics were calculated for a nine-state region in the Southeast US, and as part of the results, we compare the resilient sites identified in the report with sites previously identified by TNC for their significant biodiversity.

  • Reviewing Urban Renewal Online
             Eric Brelsford
    Urban Reviewer is a comprehensive guide to all 150 urban renewal master plans in New York City. An impressive work of opening up public data, while providing an interactive map that makes it easy to browse this complex information.

  • Environmental Hazard & Safety (EHS) Site Plan Mapping – A Data Driven Pages Approach
             Kathi Cotney
    This talk will give an overview of EHS Site Plan development for the City of Raleigh Parks & Recreation Facility Maps using Data Driven Pages. The NC Fire Code requires that qualifying EHS Facilities have site plans in the event of an emergency. This project was part of Phase 2 of the City of Raleigh’s Environmental Hazard & Safety Planning Process.

GIS and Invasive Species Coordinator, The Nature Conservancy
Margaret has worked in GIS for seventeen years. Her most recent projects include assessing freshwater resources in North Carolina, using InVEST to look at nutrient loading on the lower Cape Fear River, and analyzing longleaf pine forest habitat to inform TNC's land acquisition priorities. She also works on statewide invasive species issues and occasionally set the woods on fire through our controlled burning program.
