Practical Map Design

  • Using GIS and Cartography to Support Wetlands Science
    Presented by: Micha Salomon and Chuck Striplen, San Francisco Estuary Institute

    For about two decades, the San Francisco Estuary Institute has been mapping historical and contemporary wetlands. We've published maps in a variety of formats for scientific reports, posters, published books, and the web. This presentation will focus on some of the recent cartographic work done in the North Bay, including historical and contemporary wetland and stream mapping in the Laguna de Santa Rosa and Mark West Creek, as well as the Napa Historical Ecology Atlas (2012) published by UC Press. We'll also demonstrate regional and statewide web mapping efforts including EcoAtlas.org and Caltsheets.org.

  • Cal-Adapt: Exploring California’s Climate Change Research
    Presented by: Kevin Koy, Executive Director, Geospatial Innovation Facility, UC Berkeley - College of Natural Resources

    The Cal-Adapt (http://cal-adapt.org) web application has been developed to showcase the wealth of innovative climate change research being produced by the scientific community in California. Through a combination of locally relevant information, visualization tools, and access to primary data, Cal-Adapt allows users to investigate how the climate is projected to change in their area of interest.

    This presentation will introduce the process that our team undertook to plan for and develop this site, focusing on the challenges of presenting compelling visualizations of highly temporal raster data in a webGIS environment. It will also address the challenges faced with providing access to complex data sets and information to very different user groups, varying from general public to scientist.

    In addition to describing the development process, there will also be a live demo presenting currently available data and features available through Cal-Adapt, including temperature, snowpack, sea level rise, and fire visualization tools.

  • The Effects of Occupation Time and Obstructions on GPS Observations
    Presented by: Christopher Vencill, Student, SRJC Geospatial Technology
February 13, 2013 — Practical Data Editing
  • Editing Data – Working Smarter Not Harder
    Presented by: John Krafft, GDR

    When editing and creating data, accuracy and consistency are of utmost importance. These elements can be difficult to achieve when working with data across multiple datasets acquired from various sources. Using querying software such as SQL Server Management Studio, as well as custom-built tools for ArcMap, makes this process simple yet efficient.
