It's Our Nature to Know Webinar Series: Episode 1- ABMI Alberta Wetland Inventory - Cloud Computing & Machine Learning Approaches for Three Major Ecoregions
DATE:June 02, 2021
TIME:12:00 - 13:00 MDT
A discussion of ABMI's new Alberta-wide Wetland Inventory.
In the first episode of the series, Evan DeLancey, Fiona Gregory, and Agatha Czekajlo as they discuss the ABMI's new Alberta-wide Wetland Inventory.
This will include: 1) technical details on how the inventory was generated using Google Earth Engine, Earth observation data, and machine learning for three ecoregions in Alberta, 2) how the data can be used to to support sustainable land-use decision making, and 3) new research and development which will improve wetland mapping/monitoring data moving forward.
Join the next episodes of the series to learn about lichens, mites, mosses, aquatic invertebrates, and BEYOND!
More from the It's Our Nature to Know Webinar Series
The ABMI is pleased to present the “It’s Our Nature to Know” webinar series. From taxonomic discoveries and geospatial research to tools and platforms that bring the data to life—join us monthly to learn more about the many facets of the ABMI. Each month a different ABMI staff member (from across our delivery partners at the Universtiy of Alberta, the Royal Alberta Museum, and Innotech Alberta) will explain how and why we monitor the different aspects of Alberta landscape and biodiversity (across multiple species groups) that we do, and how the data we collect helps to inform land-use decision-making.
