Event description
How can we use GIS modeling to integrate social & environmental data to identify potential wildlife and community corridors?

About this Event

Join us as Sara Meerow and Caleb Carpenter, show how geographic information systems (GIS) modeling can be used to integrate data and identify potential paths to connect existing open spaces!

Networks of open spaces provide cities with a variety of benefits, from recreation to mitigation of air and water pollution. If unchecked, urban development often fragments these areas, resulting in a loss of ecosystems and socio-economic benefits. Proactive regional planning and policies are needed to protect the most valuable patches in and around these urban areas, connecting them through a network of greenways and corridors.
