Demos

Demo I – bioregion and convening

  • Simple: very stripped down MarineMap
  • Tool to explore bioregions
  • Various factors (Tempurature, precipitation, language, etc) used as user defined input to model
  • GRASS is the backend for the model. Based on wrapper of GRASS that makes shell calls.
  • Model returns bioregion based on least-cost analysis
  • User can refine parameters
  • Can edit, move, refine, share results
  • Once bioregion is defined, reports are available (Climate Change, Socio-economic, Natural hazards) done with PostGIS
  • Working with Global datasets for analysis was a challenge
  • Probably rebrand MarineMap as a general purpose spatial platform sometime in the future

Demo II - eCatch

  • Mobile
