Thanks to a Conservation Mapping Grant, I have been awarded a desktop license for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Pro from ESRI, world leaders in geographic information systems. I have many plans for various applications of an interactive, online map of the entire watershed; imagine, if you will, a virtual wonderland in which visitors can explore the Black River drainage basin, stop by any one of our dozens of project sites to see what's going on; citizen scientists can upload data, photos, and videos; our Visual Assessment information is able to be viewed in context with upstream and downstream areas; links are readily available to photo albums, partner websites, and much more. 2016 holds a lot of exciting promise for the Black River Action Team!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
