The Terra-i tool presented as conservation asset at world’s largest GIS conference

Terra-i team member Alejandro Coca familiarized attendees of the the world’s largest Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and conservation event in California, U.S.A., with the goals and prospects of Terra-i. The 33rd ESRI User Conference and 16th Annual Conference of the Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS) were held recently in July, both conferences forming part of a global scholarship program for which the SCGIS awarded Alejandro a competitive month-long sponsorship.

The GIS and conservation community showed strong interest in the project’s approach, the consistency of its data, and its open-source philosophy for data delivery.

In addition to the Terra-i conference sessions, Alejandro and staff from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) joined in activities at the CGIAR Consortium for Spatial Information (CGIAR-CSI) booth, located in the Environmental Showcase section of the ESRI conference. Along with Terra-i, web-GIS applications such as HarvestChoice and RTBMaps were highlighted and introduced to conference-goers.

This year CGIAR received its first award from ESRI for the development of the RTB web application.

The SCGIS scholarship program also awarded Alejandro with three ESRI instructor-led training courses related to topics such as performing GIS analysis, improving cartography as well as publishing maps based on ESRI services to the web.

    Hello Alejandro Coca,

    I am interested in possibly using an image from your report in a documentary film I am working on about Midwifes. I am relating what is happening to women in maternity care is happening to our earth. I do not know if I will use image but I would like the option to use figure 2. Satellite images provided by NASA show the high landscape change between 1975 and 2007 on the Guatemala-Belize border. Source: UNEP, CATHALAC.

    The project website is givelight.info
