Spatial Modeling and Analysis
We specialize in using GIS to help tell the conservation story of a landscape through
spatial analysis and modeling. We can create static/descriptive models, predictive
models, and time-series models. Through the use of geoprosessing tools we have developed
automated tools to make our spatial analysis more efficient.
Remote sensing techniques involve the interpretation and analysis of data sources
such as satellite and aerial imagery. Various algorithms have been developed that
help delineate land use patterns, area of high relative biomass, areas of infestations
in forests (e.g. bark beetle), fire severity, and delineating land use/cover by
spectral classes. Our GIS warehouse hosts a wealth of LANDSAT satellite imagery
as well as recent and past aerial imagery.
