Rebroadcast of Harnessing Technology Conference Series
If you didn’t make it to the Society for Range Management conference this year some of the presentations were recorded! Tune in March 19th, 2019 to hear five of the talks about harnessing technology to improve conservation effectiveness on western working lands. Researchers will be available to answer questions in real-time so viewers can chat message in their questions as well as talk to the organizers in between presentations.
Recent advances in machine-learning and cloud-computing technology have opened new doors for rangeland science, management, and monitoring--empowering more people to use “big data” to effectively and efficiently improve America’s rangelands. Earth observation data, particularly satellite remote sensing, provides a rich platform to assess conservation outcomes but traditional use has been primarily limited to specialized data analysts with sufficient computational power.
Schedule for March 19th:
9:00am - 9:20am Mountain Time
Rangeland Analysis Platform: new technology revolutionizes rangeland monitoring with Brady Allred/Matt Jones – University of Montana
9:20am - 9:40am Mountain Time
Optimizing productivity models for enhanced rangeland monitoring with Nathaniel Robinson – University of Montana
9:40am - 10:00am Mountain Time
Monitoring, evaluating, and targeting rangeland conservation through advanced riparian sensitivity mapping with Nick Silverman – Adaptive Hydrology LLC/University of Montana
10:00am - 10:20am Mountain Time
Large scale rangeland resilience planning with Dirac Twidwell – University of Nebraska
