    1. 1. Supporting Red List assessments with GeoCATJustin Moat & Steven Bachman / GIS Unit - RBG Kew / GIS@kew.org / @KewGIS
    2. 2. Royal Botanic Gardens, KewA beautiful garden - and we also do science...
    3. 3. Global seed bank – 10% banked so far IUCN Sampled Red List Index – CBD 2010The Kew ‘naming machine’Hundreds of new species described everyyear - thousands named
    4. 4. The Red list – Small Very small RestrictedPopulation population and Quantitative geographicreduction size and restricted analysis range decline population Quantitative thresholds
    5. 5. The Red List is biased towards better known groups...Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii) Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis)Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) Leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea)

    7. 7. Introducing GeoCAT -

    9. 9. Why we developed GeoCAT:- Geospatial aspects of assessments were challenging- GIS - steep learning curve- Dependence on proprietary software- Difficulty with data gathering and processing- Lack of transparency- Isolated working practices – no collaboration- Difficult to replicate analysis- Few tools available - slow progress with Red Listing
    10. 10. The Red List community needs:- rapid analysis- repeatable analysis – audit trail- data driven - from multiple sources- collaborative research and analysis- powerful, but easy to use tools- Open! and free to use

    12. 12. Future development...- Assessments in the cloud- More data sources e.g. iNaturalist, Scratchpads,BRAHMS- Integration with IUCN Red List systems- Batch processing- Species distribution models- More spatial queries- Better integration with GBIF e.g. error feedback
    13. 13. Already being used worldwideRecently used in South Korea with the IUCN Korean Plant Specialist Group... and IUCN IndoChina plants assessment with Missouri Botanic Garden
