Land cover maps are a powerful tool that can aid in better landscape-scale natural resource management decisions. Join this webinar to learn about:
- Vegetation and land cover GIS products for Hawaii and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands;
- A newly-developed, dynamic land cover product for Hawaii which identifies potential areas and rates of land cover change that has occurred since 2000;
- Attributes and intended uses of these GIS products; and
- Potential application of land cover products in the context of pre- and post-fire planning and reporting.
This 40-minute presentation will be followed by 20 minutes of Q&A and group discussion, with participant input on the best land cover product applications and interfaces for different management uses.
Natural resource managers, fire managers, and GIS users in Hawaii and US-affiliated Pacific Islands who could benefit from understanding, on a landscape-scale, map data on vegetation, land cover, and land cover change.
