UPDATE: The summer web forum schedule has been revised since it was initially posted due to a last-minute cancellation. The speakers for the August and June web forums were switched. The flyer and information below is accurate and up-to-date.
The flyer for the summer Third Thursday Web Forum series is now available! As the name implies, these webinars are held on the third Thursday of each month at 10 am Eastern time. We hope you’ll join us. »Click here for an interactive pdf of the flyer, with functioning links.
These webinars and other SECAS events are available on the SECAS event calendar.
- The June web forum on 6/15 @ 10 am ET will highlight the ParkServe mapping application developed by the Trust for Public Land. The Southeast Conservation Blueprint uses ParkServe data in the equitable access to open space indicator.
- The July web forum on 7/20 @ 10 am ET, co-hosted with the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center via their Zoom connection (advanced registration required), will focus on the FUTURES urban growth model for the contiguous United States, which predicts the probability of urbanization at each decade out to 2100 and is used in the Blueprint Explorer viewer.
- The August web forum on 8/17 @ 10 am ET will feature the free, crowdsourced spatial database OpenStreetMap (OSM). OSM representatives will give an overview of the program, and SECAS staff will cover the ways the Blueprint is using OSM data and provide a step-by-step training on how to edit OSM data and digitize new information so you can improve the Blueprint in the places you know and love.
