Director: Gary Motz
Other Researchers: Chris Dintaman, Rebecca Meyer, Ben Romlein, Pratima Soni David Polly, Chanh Kieu, Doug Edmonds, Chen Zhu, Global Climate Hire, Vegetation Modeler Hire
Funding: Indiana University - Planning for Environmental Change Grand Challenge
Approach: The primary cost is a GIS developer who will (1) work under the direction of the IGWS staff to upgrade the existing system; (2) work with PfEC modeling group to convert model outputs into GIS coverage layers for Indiana that can be used in IndianaMap and downloaded as research-ready shape files; and (3) work with ISDP, Polis, and other data repositories to convey the GIS layers and data services for use in their systems, as appropriate. This project will upgrade the systems to the latest GIS technology and modify the interface to accommodate the forecast layers. The developer will work closely with IU Spatial Data Portal and Polis for data sharing.
Products: IndianaMap redesign and new layers and REST services
