MaRS: Mapping & Remote Sensing
Launching Fall 2022
What is the ambitious goal of this project?
Join this team to learn how to apply remote sensing toward social-ecological resilience in response to disturbances such as wildfire, invasive species, and drought.
- Understand how disturbances – including wildfire, invasive species, and drought – affect social-ecological resilience.
- Become familiar with commonly-used datasets that represent disturbance, ecological states, and social-economic variables.
- Gain exposure to Unoccupied Aerial Systems (UAS), or drone, workflows.
- Increase proficiency in GIS for processing and analyzing spatial data.
- Improve skills in interdisciplinary, team-based research.
- For the 400 level VIP, students are recommended to have taken Introductory GIS courses (or have equivalent proficiency).
- Methodologies used in this project: coding and coding software, case studies, fieldwork, qualitative research methods, quantitative research methods.
