Wildwood, Thousand Oaks

Today, I decided to go for a quick hike before work in Wildwood Park. I was so excited to see that the waterfall had a good flow due to the recent rains. The hike itself to Paradise Falls is pretty easy and only takes about 20 minutes to reach the waterfall. I had a lot… Read more »

Layers, Layers, Layers

I have come to realize that half of the battle in creating a conservation priority map is locating the proper layers. I spent about an hour looking through the National Map searching for a good Aster DEM 30×30 as well as hydrography and wetlands layers. I found a couple that are for my project area,… Read more »

GIS Layers

I think the most difficult aspect of my project so far has been the data layer collection. Because my project spans between two counties (Los Angeles and Ventura County) I have to deal not one, but two different databases and shortcomings.

Atlanta, Georgia

We discussed my project progress as well as layers that I have acquired and also what is still needed to complete the project. After the meeting I took the time to explore the visitors center and collected some brochures and maps regarding cool hiking and… Read more »

Finals Week is Here!

Finals week came quick and without mercy this week. I feel well prepared, a little hungry, and in need of more coffee. Otherwise I have 3 finals down and 1 to go! I am feeling pretty well about my finals so far so I am definitely going to try to end strong! I worked on… Read more »
