Larry WaszinkFaith-owned property in Leon CountyAnalyze data on faith-owned property in Leon per LCPA, Census; My own formulas to account for incomplete data. Pictures of unique properties like the 'tent' of Northwoods Bap. Will even show a map proving which faith is the one true faith. HINT: It's Waszink-ism, a faith of my own creation. Maps of relative size of bldgs; ownership by denomination; charts w/ qty of each, total by zip, largest total, by tax, land area, building size
Larry WaszinkThe Great Condominium Construction Craze and Crash in Leon CountyWill visualize long-term trends based on LCPA data and Realtor Database data on the condo construction and condo "conversion" (buying old apartments and reselling them condos) boom times in Leon County (primarily 2006-2010), along with the aftermath as the market subsequently crashed. I will show charts and parcel maps with values, units sold, resales, relative values and will give specific examples of locations of downtown condos vs suburb condos.
Robert KohlerA Study of Walk-ability Scores and the Prevalence of Obesity Using geographic data for infrastructure and activity centers, UK census data and an application called Sugar Access, we investigate the walkability score of a UK City based on errand-related places of interest and see if there is any correlation between score and the prevalence of children who are considered obese. Further, we explore two scoring methodologies for walk-ability that reflect different sets of destinations based on age preferences.
Jessica RogersDesignating US Bicycle Routes in FloridaThis poster represents the roadway criteria, methodology and data visualization techniques used to perform the gap analysis to identify routes for USBR 1 and USBR 90. It also highlights the web mapping application developed as result of this project depicting Bicycle Friendly Roads in Florida.
John Derek MorganA Bayesian Network Approach to Exploring Coastal Home Values given Hurricane Evacuation Zone Change and the Influence of Coastal AmenitiesThose who live near the coast benefit from geographically specific amenities e.g. aesthetic view. However, coastal zones are faced with the risk of natural hazard. Bayesian networks offer a probabilistic way to explore the data. BNs and GIS can be integrated in order to create probability-based thematic maps. The case study presented in this poster models hurricane evacuation zone, home sales and distance from the coast using BNs and GIS.
Sara WanderFirmly Rooted in TallahasseeAn imagery analysis using 1930-1940s imagery with imagery from today to look at a few patriarch oaks around Tallahassee. Additionally, this project looked at the possibility of using notable oaks to georeference old imagery, and begs the question of how these trees have remained in the ever growing development of our city.
Paul O'RourkeTravel Speeds and Truck Counts - PortMiami Tunnel VicinityAn examination of the differences in travel speeds and truck counts in the Miami vicinity prior to and after the opening of the PortMiami Tunnel in 2014.
Robert Gooljar & Melanie MeroniGIS Applications in Dam SafetyAn informational poster on ways GIS analysis can assist dam safety measures. Dam safety is crucial for development and risk and emergency management. GIS can be used in numerous ways to help professionals in preventative measures for dam safety, such as assessing dams, modeling potential failure and inundation simulations, or locating new dams.
AmirSasan MahjoorFlorida Ecological Integrity ModelThis work is to provide an index of ecological integrity which can measure the dynamics and ecological state of the environment in the broad spatial scale. The prime importance of this study is to provide a global ecological index to understand the ecosystem composition from region to region. It can be anticipated that this approach will be able to provide a guideline to researchers and managers for measuring, monitoring, and planning ecosystem health in the landscape to regional context.
Jason RayWhat's Available From FDEM GISThis is an informational poster organized to provide a snapshot of some of the products developed and made available by the Florida Division of Emergency Management's GIS staff. Products displayed include mapping templates for download, various download methods of Critical Facilities & Essential Facilities for import through CDMS into HAZUS-MH to replace the out-of-the-box data, and a new data layer and widget available in our SERT GATOR common operating picture flex viewer.
Jennifer SantoroUsing LiDAR for Wild Turkey & Forest Management in OhioLiDAR is a powerful tool in forestry: it provides an efficient way to detect canopy height and forest gaps. We used LiDAR, a variety of topographic datasets, and aerial imagery to analyze wild turkey habitat in Ohio. First, we performed an overlay analysis to delineate forest management units. Then, we used LiDAR to detect canopy gaps in mature hardwood forests. Since wild turkeys require a mix of mature forest and open area, this analysis allowed us to highlight areas for habitat management.
Levi HannonGeologic Mapping Funded by the STATEMAP Program Through 2015This poster shows the current progress of the Florida Geological Survey's STATEMAP program in mapping the surficial geology of the state of Florida. The program has mapped roughly 45% of the state to date. The STATEMAP program is funded by the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program (NCGMP).
Mehdi BehrooziWasserstein metric for the distributionally robust TSP In this paper, we consider a distributionally robust version of the traveling salesman problem in which we compute the worst-case spatial distribution of demand against all distributions whose Wasserstein distance to an observed demand distribution is bounded from above. Numerical experiments on the map Los Angeles county confirm that our new approach is useful as a decision support tool for dividing a territory into service districts for a fleet of vehicle when limited data is available.
Michelle Ladle, P.G.The Misadventures of Remote Verifyin’Ahoy Mateys! This be a treasure map: a record of the wanderin's of the Florida Geological Survey from the waters of the deep to seek the secrets hidden beneath the sands of time. As geologists, we seek to locate boreholes of old, for their clues of the past will lead us to solve an ancient mystery.
James CichonPotentiometric Surface Declines in the upper Floridan AquiferThe decline in upper Floridan aquifer water levels is calculated by using a pre-development potentiometric surface and the May 2012 potentiometric surface. The result shows large areas of decline in three parts of the State.
Brittany Wood and Karina KhazmutdinovaExploring Dragon Tooth's Cave with 3-D Mapping TechnologyA 3-D Laser survey of the Dragon's Tooth Cave located in the Florida Caverns was conducted in March 2015. Field data was converted into a digital 3-D point cloud representation using Cyclone software. Ultimately, these measurements resulted in a detailed, high-resolution 3-D volumetric model which can be used to more accurately model air flow in the cavern.
