We joined forces with investigative reporters from Tyee Solutions Society to acquire data on sinks and sources of atmospheric carbon in BC, and build it into an interactive web map and balance table for exploring our provincial greenhouse gas landscape.
Geocology provides GIS and informatics capacity to environmental and community organizations that don't have that capacity in-house.
We combine technical skills like GIS, database and web with background in ecology, outreach, communications and policy.
Our goal is to become a shared resource of best practices and repeatable experience that Vancouver and coastal area organizations can collectively draw on.
Hugh studied ecology at the University of Guelph before working in conservation GIS and remote sensing at UC Davis and the Smithsonian Institution.
He combined his interests in ecology, complex systems theory and geospatial methods in a Masters thesis at the University of Michigan studying dryland vegetation patterning.
Hugh used to like motorcycles and deserts but now likes camper vans and fjords. He has planted over a million trees by hand. True fact.
Jane works with forest dependent communities on climate change and participatory natural resource governance.
For the last several years she has worked in the Congo basin leveraging REDD and other carbon programs towards climate change mitigation/adaptation and livelihood enhancement.
Jane studied Geography and Political Science at Concordia University, and is endlessly grateful to do work that involves good measures of reading, writing, talking, and stomping around in the muck.
Chinatown counts as East Van right?
But it sure would be nice to get back out into the field one of these days.
