Web tools for redd monitoring and planning

  1. 1. Web tool for REDD monitoring and planning<br />Ernesto Giron<br />Glenn Hyman<br />2011 Esri International User Conference<br />Climate Change and Agriculture: Assessing Impact and Adaptation Options<br />Wednesday, July 13, 2011<br />San Diego, CA<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Overview<br />What’s REDD+?<br />Mapaz in the REDD+ context<br />Basic features and functionalities<br />User data, map layers and basemaps<br />Spatial analysis and queries<br />GIS services, help and others<br />What’s next?<br />
  3. 3. Overview<br />Agreements to address climate change have sparked interest in REDD+<br />Some technical expertise required<br />We developed a tool for <br />visualizing and querying deforestation<br />Assessing biomass and carbon emissions<br />Calculating opportunity costs of avoided deforestation <br />
  4. 4. What’s REDD+?<br />REDD+ is a global mechanism for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, as well as the conservation and sustainable management of forests, and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks. The scheme offers one of the cheapest options for reducing greenhouse gases.<br />
  5. 5. REDD+ (Cont)<br />Recently, there has been a notable interest in mechanismsforreducingemissionsfromdeforestation and forestdegradation (REDD) as anopportunitytomitigateclimatechange, initiativesthat in the local contextcouldbeestablished as incentive paymentsforavoideddeforestation.<br />
  6. 6. Mapaz in the REDD+ Context<br />MAPAZ: Environment and PopulationMappingfor a Sustainable Amazon isaninteractivemap server forresearch, planning and publicpolicydesign, supporting natural resources and conservationinitiativesforecosystemservicesmanagement in the Amazon<br />
  7. 7. Mapaz in the REDD+ Context (Cont)<br />Satellite imagery and geographic information on population density, biodiversity, biomass, land cover and sustainable development in the Amazon<br />Calculates rates of past and future forest loss <br />Estimates opportunity cost of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) in user-defined areas <br />
  8. 8. Basic features and functionalities<br />• English and Spanish Languages<br />• Pan, Full Extent, Zoom In/Out<br />• Map Layer properties<br />• Map Legends<br />• Display Coordinates<br />• Call out box with additional info<br />• Map Scale<br />• Search by Layer<br />• Draw Tools<br />• Export Map to PDF/JPEG<br />• Print Preview<br />• Help Online<br />• Video tutorials<br />
