Subtitled “Location Intelligence in Climate Change and Climate Equity”, the StoryMap’s goal is to share our work to promote and enhance climate equity by focusing on social, cultural, racial and ecological aspects of climate justice. In our roles as GIS practitioners, we seek to empower communities with geospatial methods and data.
We are focusing our work on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 13.1 and 13.3, and 13.B and the indicators used to measure progress:
Check out the online form we included in the StoryMap to solicit information on the climate change resources you know of and use – whether GIS tools, case studies, methodologies, best practices, or any other resources that should be shared with the wider community. The StoryMap is a living resource and repository on the URISA website, so we will add your input to our tools list repository and update it as our work progresses.
Our group is also actively working on presentations and workshops for GIS-Pro 2022 in October, developing climate change webinars, and expanding our program. We can always use more volunteers, so if you are interested, please go to the bottom of the StoryMap form and add your contact information.
We invite you to take a look, learn about what URISA is doing for climate change, and participate by adding to our tools list and joining our efforts.
