Other Webinar
Date and Time: 
Apr 9, 2013 (All day)

Presented by Conservation Biology Institute

Dr. James Strittholt and Dr. Tosha Comendant present an overview of the Data Basin platform (www.databasin.org).  The presentation includes specific examples of LCCs in the Southeast US who are using Data Basin as their conservation data sharing and planning platform.  The existing LCC sites are focused on giving casual GIS users (e.g., managers, biologists, coordinators, administrators, etc) better access to consistent and compatible spatial datasets and simple geoprocessing tools.  We will also discuss efforts at the National LCC level to connect data sharing and  web-based tools with LC Map.
