Advancing Tools & Visualization Techniques for Representing Modeled Ecosystem Service Outcomes in Simulated Multi-player Game Environments

Researchers will convene a workshop to build a prototype system that combines elements of choice modeling, ecosystem modeling, and interactive multiplayer games all focused on capturing the economic value individuals on alternative levels and qualities of ecosystem services. Participants will develop a novel tool that will involve an interactive gaming platform linked to an ecosystem simulation model. This will allow individuals to “play” the system to create their version of the “best” landscape.

Land Use Change & Infectious Diseases

Land-use change is rapidly converting forests and savannas into land whose primary focus is agriculture or production of other goods and services of direct benefit to the human economy. This significantly alters the interactions between the environment, disease vector species, and populations of humans and domestic livestock.

Using Spatial Data and Analysis to Understand the Human Impacts of Ocean Acidification

We propose an integrated, spatial assessment of the potential chemical, biological, and human dimensions of ocean acidification (OA) facilitated by three meetings and a parallel data synthesis guided by two overarching goals: 1) assess the potential impact of OA on coastal communities in order to identify hot spots where OA impacts will be most acute, and 2) assess whether current natural and social science research can address policy and environmental management needs for OA; we will identify research needs that are unmet.

VIDEO: SESYNC Visualization Technologies Workshop Keynote Presentations

SESYNC hosted the Visualization Technologies to Support Research on Human - Environment Interactions Workshop to focus especially on the visualization and use of spatial datasets from the social and environmental sciences.  The workshop discussed and identified some of the current visualization challenges and emerging opportunities in using spatial datasets to study human-environment interactions.  The meeting was a ‘problem-solving’ workshop wherein domain scientists from the social and environmental sciences were able to

Citizen Science, Butterfly Monitoring & Cyberinfrastructure

Citizen-scientists throughout North America perform thousands of surveys each year but, unlike their European counterparts, the data from these monitoring programs are little known and less used. A recent workshop at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) brought together all major butterfly data producers with representatives from the scientific and technology communities with the goal to develop systems to promote and support expanding public participation in and use of butterfly data and knowledge.
