Remotely sensed data are valuable for monitoring, assessing, and managing impacts on arid and semi-arid lands caused by drought or other changes in the natural environment. With this in mind, we redeveloped DroughtView, a web-based decision-support tool that combines satellite-derived measures of surface greenness with additional geospatial data so that users can visualize and evaluate vegetation dynamics across space and over time. To date, users of DroughtView have been local drought impact groups, ranchers, federal and state land management staff, environmental scientists, and plant geographers. During this presentation, we will examine a recent drought assessment in which participants used DroughtView to corroborate their on-the-ground observations with larger, county-level patterns of high and low rangeland productivity. We also will consider how researchers utilize DroughtView to time vegetation surveys in order to make a flora and manage invasive species. In addition to learning about DroughtView and the data behind it through these examples, we will look at its new capabilities to report drought impacts and share map information.

About the Presenter:
As part of Cooperative Extension at the University of Arizona, Jeremy is responsible for responding to emerging climate and geospatial information needs expressed by stakeholders. This includes the production of data sets, analyses, and visualizations, generation of synthesis products such as Extension fact sheets and bulletins, and development and application of decision-support tools like Web map applications. His activities also include developing and maintaining outreach efforts that help people put knowledge of weather and climate hazards and geospatial data to use.
