Webinar: Powered by Data Basin: Supporting the LCCs with Spatial Data, Tools, and Social Networks
WhenStart: April 9, 2013 @ 10AM PT
End: April 9, 2013 @ 11AM PT
Webinar presentation on April 9 2013 by Dr. James Strittholt and Dr. Tosha Comendant from the Conservation Biology Institute (www.consbio.org). Dr. Strittholt presented an overview of the Data Basin platform (www.databasin.org). The presentation includes specific examples of Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) in the Southeast US who are using Data Basin as their conservation data sharing and planning platform. The existing LCC sites are focused on giving casual GIS users (e.g., managers, biologists, coordinators, administrators, etc) better access to consistent and compatible spatial datasets and simple geoprocessing tools. We will also discuss efforts at the National LCC level to connect data sharing and web-based tools with LC Map.
