Authors: BryAnna Vaughan, Thomas Gustie
GIS is one of the many hats that each of our environmental staff wears. Other hats include natural resource protection, restoration, management, and reporting. From nonpoint source assessment along our waterways to invasive weed management to riparian restoration for the purpose of monitoring plant survival rates, we use GIS to record the data and tell a story. We will share the various ways we use GIS to manage, analyze, and report our data as well as some of the hurdles we have encountered.
