Data Integration Workshop in Support of the Coastal Temperate Rainforest of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia

Conservation Planning and Design, Decision Support Tools and Data

The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center will lead a second workshop to develop cross-boundary geospatial and climate datasets in support of regional conservation applications in the coastal temperate rainforest zone of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia. This project will continue to facilitate planning sessions and forums on technical development of standardized datasets as well as formalize a platform for coordination of data-exchange and dissemination via the Southeast Alaska GIS Library. In addition, this workshop will establish a plan for future analytical efforts in which cross-boundary datasets are utilized to address critical and regional conservation applications, including connectivity and dispersal, carbon budget allocation, and climate change vulnerabilities.
