EMDS globe trek

EMDS has been used for many problems involving decision support for natural resource management. I have put together a globe trek with Google Earth that provides a cool tour of EMDS applications around the world. It's kinda fun.

Notes on downloading and running the tour:

  1. Download and install Google Earth, if you don't have it already.
  2. Download the EMDS globe trek tour, "EMDS globe trek.kmz." You can download to any folder on your hard-drive, but the Google Earth folder is a good choice.
  3. After downloading the kmz file, start Google Earth.
  4. Click File-Open, and select the trek file from the folder in which it was saved.
  5. The file loads into the Temporary places folder by default, but you can click and drag it to the My places folder if you'd like to keep it.
  6. To start the tour, highlight the EMDS globe trek item, then click the play button on the bottom of the Places pane.


Interactive tour of model for wildfire danger

Link to a very cool tour of a fire danger model for evaluation of wildfire. The tour was built with map outputs from the EMDS system. Folks involved in the design of the model were me (Keith M Reynolds), Paul Hessburg, and Bob Keane.

Note: You will need to switch to full screen view after the tour loads in order for it to work correctly.

Visiting West Argyle, Scotland

This photo is circa 1998. At the time, I was working on a cooperative project with Forestry Research (UK) to develop a prototype application for ecological site classification of commercial forest tree species in Great Britain.
