Data and water resource management
 
05:53
'If you can't measure it, you can't manage it' -- this simple yet essentially true statement applies to water, as it does for most other goods and services. One of the biggest challenges to water management is the lack of attention to systems that regularly collect and monitor data on water. In this edition of Colin's STRAIGHTtalk, Dr Colin Chartres, Director General of the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) talks about the importance of monitoring and sharing of water data to improve the way in which water resources are planned and managed.

GLAC 2018 - Keynote 5: The Preservation of Natural Resources through Space
 
23:20
Global Space Applications Conference - GLAC 2018 21 - 23 May 2018 Keynote 5: The Preservation of Natural Resources through Space The exploitation of non-renewable and renewable resources imposes threats and challenges to the environment and our society. The global sustainable development goals (SDG) provide a framework on how resources shall be exploited and how we can use observation technologies for monitoring the environment and the interactions of mankind with nature. Resources need also to be secured from being damaged by natural disasters. Hence, monitoring and mapping of disasters on a global scale and with regional partners (e.g. South America) is likewise of importance. Earth observation data, giving information on the exploitation, transport and use of these resources should therefore be available on a full, open and free basis, as implemented by large Earth Observation Programs such as Copernicus. New approaches in big data analysis now allow making benefit from this avalanche of new and free Earth observation data, also for resource mapping.

In 2007, the United States Geological Survey published an assessment of the non-fuel mineral resources of Afghanistan, along with a supporting GIS database. This open-file report updated and greatly expanded upon previous such reports, such as this one from 2002. We imported both the 2002 and the 2007 U.S.G.S. data into Palantir, integrating it with an existing Palantir instance on the Afghan insurgency, in order to investigate the accessibility of Afghanistan's natural resources from the point of view of the country's violence. The resulting analysis demonstrates the power of being able to combine disparate types of data--here, mineral data and attack data--by means of Palantir's Dynamic Ontology.

GeoSpatial Mapping of Natural Resources
 
07:07
A geographic information system or (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geo-informatics. What goes beyond a GIS is a spatial data infrastructure, a concept that has no such restrictive boundaries. In general, the term describes any information system that integrates, stores, edits, analyzes, shares, and displays geographic information. GIS applications are tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information, edit data in maps, and present the results of all these operations.Geographic information science is the science underlying geographic concepts, applications, and systems. GIS is a broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and methods. It is attached to many operations and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business.[ For that reason, GIS and location intelligence applications can be the foundation for many location-enabled services that rely on analysis and visualization. GIS can relate unrelated information by using location as the key index variable. Locations or extents in the Earth space–time may be recorded as dates/times of occurrence, and x, y, and z coordinates representing, longitude, latitude, and elevation, respectively. All Earth-based spatial–temporal location and extent references should, ideally, be relatable to one another and ultimately to a "real" physical location or extent. This key characteristic of GIS has begun to open new avenues of scientific inquiry.

What steam power was to the 18th century, electromagnetism to the 19th and fossil fuels to the 20th… data will be to the 21st.” Ginni Rometty, President and Chief Executive Officer of IBM. Dealing with heterogeneous data sources and extracting value from them is one of the most important challenges in recent years. From business information delivery, through human resources management, life sciences and Industry 4.0 to earth observation to be able to consume data it is necessary to provide with information infrastructures that allow reliable collection, storage, analytics and visualization of the data – e.g. the realization of the full cycle of the so called data value chain. Semantic technologies start playing crucial role in these endeavours. The present talk will discuss the nature of semantic information infrastructures, their advantages and drawbacks, and will show the trend of their adoption by big industrial companies along with examples of applications based on semantic information infrastructures produced by Mozaika.

Environmental Performance Reporting for the Natural Resources Defense Council
 
10:34
Since its founding in 1970, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has managed its own operations in a way that matched the convictions of its advocacy. While the sustainability of NRDC's operations meets high standards today, becoming truly sustainable requires the organization to further reduce its impacts on the Earth. As part of a three-year plan to improve the sustainability of NRDC's operations, the organization is seeking to identify the appropriate reporting standard for disclosing environmental performance. The project will begin with a meeting between the Capstone Workshop team and NRDC operations staff and program thought leaders to understand both how NRDC operates and its goals for disclosure. At the time of this writing, NRDC is on schedule to implement enterprise sustainability management software in three of its six offices before the Workshop begins. The implementation of the software in the remaining offices will be phased in over one to two years. The new software will enable detailed monitoring and analysis of all aspects of NRDC's environmental performance (energy, GHGEs, water, waste, etc.) in a single system. Until now, measurement has been decentralized, with some data in ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager, other data managed in spreadsheets, and some data inadequately captured. After reviewing all the relevant data and documentation provided by NRDC, the Workshop team will conduct a thorough comparison of reporting standards (e.g. GRI, Facility Reporting Project, etc.); including an analysis of the pros and cons of the most viable reporting systems. Based on the analysis, the Workshop team will recommend the standard that best matches NRDC's operational and disclosure goals.

PNR Rendezvous - Decolonizing Data - 02/21/18
 
52:45
Much research has been historically rooted in controlling American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) and other indigenous peoples to exploit land and natural resources, or even heredity and group identity. Yet, AIAN community ties, tribal sovereignty rights and claims, and cultural values are emerging as critical elements of resiliency key to reversing the very health and social issues that have plagued indigenous populations as a whole since the dawn of colonization. The practice of research and utilizing information collected by means of observation, hypothesis-testing, repetition of experiment and sound conclusions to inform decision-making, have been integral to indigenous survival and well being for centuries. In this webinar, Rose James, PhD, from the Urban Indian Health Institute in Seattle, WA, reviews some of the modern scientific values in comparison to AIAN ways of knowing and provide examples of indigenous research concepts as they align with decolonizing data.

GEO SPATIAL TECHNOLOGY IS A POWERFUL TOOL TO TRANSFORM MANAGEMENT OF FORESTS,ECOLOGY & ENVIRONMENT WITH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT"----"Geo Spatial Information Technology" thrives upon convergence and amalgamation of Geographical Topo-Sheets, Digital Satellite Imageries, Global Positioning System & Geographical Information Services. This GeoSpatial Intelligence not only facilitates accessing, analysing large chunk of digital spatial data, mixing of tremendous amount of attributes but also empowers interpretation of satellite imageries, monitoring of forest wealth in a routine, utilizing sustained yield on periodic basis, administering India's 40% natural capital which help and assist trigger integrated natural resource development in the sector of Forest, Ecology and Environment as seen never before. Monitoring Forest, Ecology and Wild Life Resources is essential in present day global scenario as economic development of any country depends on sustainable management of its renewable natural resources. This sector tangibly and intangibly contributes significantly in growth in term of GDP providing food, fibre, forest produce, medicines apart from supplying timber, fuel wood and multitude of genetic resources which could not be measured and quantified to such a greater precision as ever before. Sustainable management of ecology, environment, flora and fauna helps in conservation of bio diversity, maintenance of soil fertility and control of floods, droughts, landslide and climatic disasters-thus maintaining equilibrium in ecosystem and environment. National Forest Policy encompasses sustained yield and regulation of ever growing demand of forest resources ensuring conservation of natural forest wealth and its protection. Geo Spatial Technology assists us in analysis, assessment and management of natural resources through application of combination of remote sensing, GPS, GIS tools and techniques, in addition to skilful interpretation of exhaustive satellite earth imageries comprehensively. The GeoSpatial Cyber-Ecosystem work flow allows comprehensively a forester for inventory mapping, forest composition assessment and to raise early warning for degradation together with monitoring of surrounding water resources, wild fires and illegal encroachments as well as regulating felling activities to prevent uncontrolled deforestation. It will not only help in formation of "Standard Protocols" but will also assist in growth and development of natural resources ensuring greater rate of returns, higher productivty in a transparent and responsivesystem of g-Governance ..A K Singh
