The National Geospatial Platform
April 14, 2014
Speaker:Jerry Johnston, DOI Geospatial Information Officer
How will energy development affect endangered species habitat? How will landscape fragmentation change if one or more conservation actions were taken? These questions and many more depend on geospatial information. Practitioners now have access to a wide variety of geospatial datasets and tools for this sort of analysis. Please join Interior's Office of Policy Analysis on Monday, April 14 for the monthly speaker series, which will feature Jerry Johnston, DOI's Geospatial Information Officer. Jerry will discuss how the Geospatial Platform can enable more effective landscape-level decision making in support of many different policy and program needs, including climate change adaptation, ecosystem services and resilience, energy assessments, and hazard response.
