Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Projects
City of Lakewood Cartegraph Implementation
As a GIS Technician for the City of Lakewood, I assisted in data management and GIS preparation for the Public Works Cartegraph OSM integration. Attached are sample models used in the process.
Mountain Pine Beetle
As a geospatial volunteer for the Colorado Mountain Bike Association, I developed two static maps which assessed mountain pine beetle diseased and dying trees in relationship to Colorado’s public trails. This map displays point locations from the 2017 National Insect and Disease Survey conducted by the U.S. Forest Service.
This project was a swipe application made in ArcGIS Online to allow users with an internet connection to view the map. The map display the U.S. mean rainfall averages between 1971 and 2019 along with the National Commodity Crop Productivity Index data.
Remote Sensing Literature Review
Satellite imagery has many applications, especially in ecology where large areas can be monitored with synoptic and repetitive imaging. Here, I analyze remote sensing applications for collecting canopy cover estimates and compare multiple approaches.
City of Golden
The City of Golden project investigated the interaction of land cover types to the urban heat island effect experienced in Golden, Colorado. Data was gathered from the City of Golden geospatial team, the Denver Open Data Catalog, and the Jefferson County Open Data Catalog.
Mountain Pine Beetle
As a geospatial volunteer for the Colorado Mountain Bike Association, I developed two static maps which assessed mountain pine beetle diseased and dying trees in relationship to Colorado’s public trails. This map displays damaged trails segments in the Front Range counties.
From a Science, Policy, & the Environment course, a hypothetical policy brief was proposed to the City of Denver for academic purposes only. The policy requires new commercial buildings over 25,000 square feet to obtain an Energy Star score of 82 or higher in the year of their completion.
