Mapping anything and everything.
What we've been mapping lately...
Working with the Town of Koshkonong, our drone and GPS mapping crew, Hanan Ali and Kristen Barman, has collected differential GPS information on the park’s trails and points of interest along with conducting the largest set of drone flights we’ve ever done. Stay tuned for a more detailed view of their results.
We’ve been exploring the power of ESRI’s Survey123 tools and developed a quick demonstration of how the system can be used to quickly collect information from the general public and incorporated into a maintenance system for campus. The demo includes a public reporting tool, a public map to view the status of issues, and a backend map to moderate, update, and finalize reported issues.
Here are the publicly viewable tools:
Let us know if you have any thoughts on how to improve this demo.
Dr. Compas has joined the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts‘ Geospatial Working Group. He’ll be working with other GIS leaders throughout the state to help share GIS data relevant to climate change analysis and impacts and to support other working groups as part of the initiatives. In particular, he hopes to help the Climate Working Group make their down-scaled climate modeling data available to GIS practitioners and researchers across the state.
