Webinar, Atlantic Chapter, April 19, 2018


CRSS-SCT – Atlantic Chapter

April 19th, 2018 – 1:00 pm Atlantic Time


CRSS-SCT Members are cordially invited to attend a webinar on Thursday, April 19, 2018 @ 1:00 pm Atlantic Time. The presenter is Dr. Amy Mui of Dalhousie University.


Remote sensing based research has an enormous potential to provide information on the state of species at risk as well as the pressure they face at multiple temporal and spatial scales. In this talk, Dr. Amy Mui will discuss her research which utilizes multispectral imagery to model habitat preference and connectivity for the Blanding’s turtle, a species at risk in Canada. Space-borne imagery and GPS tracking data are used as inputs into a random forest algorithm and circuit-based models to predict core habitat and movement patterns across varied landscapes. Results are utilized in collaboration with species conservation organizations and land management agencies to improve decision-making across all sectors.
