Immersive technologies are going mainstream. Improved in quality and affordable, they provide a unique opportunity for spatial sciences, which have, in parallel, witnessed tremendous advancements in 3D sensing and modeling technologies. These synergistic transitions allow spatial disciplines like geosciences, architecture, landscape architecture, or geography, to revisit possibilities for using immersive technologies for communicating and understanding spatial and environmental issues and challenges. What is missing is a more rigorous, scientific approach that provides evidence-based design guidelines for immersive experiences and allows…

As extreme climatic events such as droughts are becoming more frequent and demands for water are increasing world-wide, it is projected that as many as 3.5 billion people could experience water scarcity by 2025. In Australia, changes in climate and land use as well as multi-year droughts, such as the Millennium Drought that ended in 2009, have led to water shortages, particularly in the Murray-Darling Basin (MDB). The MDB is a large (>1million km2) semi-arid basin that experiences conflict over…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Julian Agyeman

October 3, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join us for a special Geospatial Forum and panel presentation event:"Just Sustainabilities and the Future of North Carolina: how does who can belong determine what the state can become?" Julian Agyeman of Tufts University will first present "Just Sustainabilities in Policy, Planning and Practice," outlining his concept of "just sustainabilities"––the full integration of social justice and sustainability, defined as "the need to ensure a better quality of life for all, now and into the future, in a just and equitable…

In heavily forested environments, the digital deletion of vegetation through lidar remote sensing and the generation of bare-earth digital elevation models has enhanced our abilities to observe and quantify geologic hazards. In this forum Dr. Wegmann will present examples from studies in Washington, Colorado, and North Carolina where lidar datasets allow for improved identification and quantification of landslide, debris flow, and earthquake hazards. For example, the 2014 Oso debris avalanche in Washington State killed 43 people. Lidar-based digital elevation models…

ArcGIS Enterprise is a foundational software system for powerful mapping, analytics, and data management. Deploying ArcGIS Enterprise in the cloud combines the capabilities of GIS with the computing power and flexibility of cloud deployments. This forum presentation will provide an overview of ArcGIS Enterprise and the software components necessary to configure a base deployment. We will explore deployment scenarios including using AWS CloudFormation and Azure CloudBuilder to extend your cloud computing to GIS. Live demos of each deployment will enable…

Seasonal (0-3 months) climate forecasts and near-term decadal (10-30 years) climate change projections provide valuable information for improving seasonal and long-term planning of water and energy management. Given that the climatic attributes over these time periods are typically expressed as probabilistic information, we propose an adaptive water and energy management framework that uses probabilistic inflow forecasts to allocate water for uses with pre-specified reliabilities. To ensure that the system needs are not compromised due to forecast uncertainty, we consider uncertainty…

Is nature predictable? If so, how can we better manage and conserve ecosystems? Iterative ecological forecasting is an emerging interdisciplinary research area that aims to improve researchers' ability to predict ecological processes on near-term timescales that can be validated and updated. In this forum, Dietze will discuss the challenges and opportunities in iterative ecological forecasting, present a framework to understand the predictability of ecological processes, and highlight ongoing efforts to build an ecological forecasting community of practice. He will draw…

From deforestation to urbanization, the human footprint on the land surface is ever expanding, converting natural land covers into land uses or intensifying current land uses. Land use change results in loss of biodiversity, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and alteration of hydrological systems, among other impacts. Rates of land use change can be quantified using time-series earth observation data from satellites. The integrated use of multi-source data dramatically improves monitoring capabilities, reducing the uncertainties around many important land dynamics, such…

Geospatial Forum with Dr. Bill Rand

April 2, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Online NC

Social media posts are generated both in space and time, and in the context of disaster situations, they can provide minute-by-minute and location-by-location awareness of an event and users' concerns and feelings about crises. In this forum, we investigate the relationship between natural disasters, social media, user actions and traditional media coverage. We will examine temporal and spatial relationships, and spatiotemporal patterns, and we will focus on the confluence of these patterns. Our results indicate that social media can be…

In this forum, Dr. Wentz shares the goals and outcomes from Arizona State University’s Knowledge Exchange for Resilience (KER). KER is a boundary organization with the intent to build community resilience in Maricopa County, Arizona. Here, community resilience is defined as the capacity of a community to withstand and respond to long term stresses and acute shocks. KER’s signature activities in the knowledge exchange include a Hunch Lunch, where ideas around vulnerabilities and solutions are shared; Fellows program, where individuals…
