Theme 3: Spatiotemporal Data & Models

Theme Three is dedicated to creating user-friendly tools that incorporate diverse datasets to visualize and explore where certain species could move throughout space and time. This theme builds additional tools that will help people to map how climate change will impact biodiversity and rural communities using the research developed by themes 1 & 2.

Theme Three tools will answer questions such as:

1) How can data from several sources that are in various data formats be combined?
2) How can data on changes over time be used to predict a pattern as it relates to weather and climate change?
3) What will the September low temperatures on my farm look like in 20 years?
4) Where will there be maple trees in 2100?
