Sara WanderGive Tallahassee a Green Thumbs UpThis poster will explore access within Tallahassee to farmers markets and proximity to community gardens. Using the City of Tallahassee's vacant lots which are suitable for community gardens, this project will also aim to prioritize the development of new community gardens in some of the spaces throughout the city with a higher need and lower accessibility to already existing local produce sources.
Christy CrandallUsing the GIS-based Watershed Assessment Model to evaluate BMP implementation and Nutrient Loads in an Agricultural BasinNutrient loads in streams from non-point sources are addressed through the adoption of agricultural Best Management Practice (BMPs) implementation. The Watershed Assessment Model (WAM) has been calibrated for Attapulgus Creek basin in Georgia and Florida to evaluate the effectiveness of implementing BMPs. WAM, a Geographic Information System-based surface-water model, enables users to assess water quantity and quality based on the physical properties of the watershed and management scenarios.
Amanda KubesExploring Invasive Species Distributions within ArcGIS using Python ToolsThis work aims to explore the utility and flexibility of options in ArcGIS for creating ecological models such as species distribution models (SDMs). Here, a Python ArcGIS script tool is used to execute Maxent, a popularly used SDM method, within ArcGIS, to explore the potential distributions of two invasive reptiles in South Florida. SDMtoolbox, a python-based ArcGIS toolbox for spatial studies in ecology, is also used here to explore model outputs for these species.

Cory CowickTransitioning Traditional Maps into Modern GISTraditional maps made prior to the GIT revolution of recent years are still relevant and need to be used but there are issues when storing these maps. Hard copy maps can be damaged, misplaced, or just underused due to lack of access. With modern GIS and ArcGIS Online these maps can be stored and made accessible to a large audience.

Carlton AndersonEast Ship and Sand Island Mississippi: A Comparison Study of Habitat and ElevationThis study compares short-term habitat succession and island genesis between two barrier islands in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. This was done in terms of habitat loss or development and migration, as well as geomorphic changes due to natural processes. Remotely sensed data in the form of aerial R,G,B imagery and LIDAR were used in conjunction with ground referenced data to make supervised classifications of habitat and Digital Surface Models for both islands, utilizing ArcGIS and ENVI.
John CroweTate's Hell SwampTate’s Hell State Forest covers approximately 316 square miles (202,436 acres) of low-lying, poorly drained land in Franklin and southern Liberty counties between the Apalachicola and Ochlockonee rivers. The property was acquired by the State of Florida with the goal of restoring historical ecological communities and surface water drainage patterns in order to improve the quality of surface water runoff discharged from the area to the Apalachicola River and Bay watershed.
Paul O'RourkePort Everglades Import Commodity Flows 2013This world map depicts import commodity information for Port Everglades for the year 2013. Countries are symbolized based on the volume of metric tons imported into the port. Average travel speeds and annual average truck volume within five miles of the port are also shown.
Paul O'RourkeU.S. Bicycle RoutesThis map identifies roads that are proposed for designation as U.S. Bicycle Routes in Florida. The map further identifies those segments that have a designated bike lane as well as those that have an outside shoulder of >= 4 feet. At this time, U.S. Bicycle Route 1 and U.S. Bicycle Route 90 are under consideration for approval by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
Sadaf Zendehdel and Joseph AlvarezSocioeconomic and Health Access Analysis of Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County, FloridaThis poster highlights a report provided to the St. Lucie County Health Department which assisted county leaders, local organizations, and stakeholders to better understand the demographic, economic, and health status of the people in Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County. This research led to grant funding opportunities to combat gun and gang related violence as well as health disparities.
Megan CromwellUsing Geographical Information Systems Technology to provide modern solutions to the Historical St. James CemeteryGeographic information technology can be used to assess the accuracy of historic records and provide cost-effective and updated solutions to meet modern needs and standards. St. James Cemetery records held errors from a variety of factors including a lack of uniform graveside surveying and improper record keeping. Prior records were evaluated and corrected, then transferred to a digital format for future organization and utility.
Benjamin MittlerHow Well Do You Know Your Aerial Photography?While conducting land use photo interpretation it becomes essential to be able to recognize certain distinct features and vegetative signatures from aerial imagery. Although ancillary data layers can help identify these unique features, it is important to be able to quickly identify them based solely on aerial imagery. This poster is designed to test you on some of the more obscure/abnormal images you may encounter throughout the state of Florida.
William R. FunderburkMapping the distibution of Habitat-Types on Cat Island MS.Vegetation commmunities were mapped using airborne and satellite sensors. Improvments of accuracy were made using elevation and ground reference data.Using 2010 habitat-type GPS locations and 2010 fused multispectral (SPOT 5) and radar (L-band) data sets, a supervised maximum likelihood habitat-type classification of Cat Island MS. was produced with an accuracy of 88%. Habitat types include: beach dune, low, marsh, high marsh, estuarine shrubland, and slash pine woodland.
Levi HannonCreating A Custome Elevation Model For Use In Geological Mapping Geological mapping in Florida benefits greatly from LiDAR. Different features become clearly visible with LiDAR, but are missed using conventional contour-derived degital elevation models (DEM). In order to produce a quality product, a custom elevation model has to be generated, joing DEM and LiDAR. This poses some problems though, including lack of detail and false "seams."
Levi HannonGeologic Map of the USGS 30x60 Minute Saint Augustine QuadrangleThis is a published product produced by the FGS - STATEMAP Program. The program studies and generates surficial geology for full USGS quadrangles around the state every year. The STATEMAP program has sumbitted a product every year since 1994. The most recent product is of the USGS 30x60 minute Saint Augustine quadrangle.

Daniel F. DiazMapping the Past, Present, and Future of Florida State ParksCartographic technology has evolved a great deal since the establishment of the Florida Park Service in 1935. This work illustrates an early map of one of Florida’s oldest state parks, drawing comparisons with today’s GIS techniques and the future of spatial data as a planning tool for state recreation lands.
Deborah A WillisSunshine Bus Company Transit RoutePoster displays all of the scheduled routes of the St. Augustine St. Sunshine Bus transit system. The routes are color coded and lines are offset on roadways traveled by multiple routes so that all routes are displayed on the map. Map contains an inset to zoom in on an area that is difficult to see.
Michele MayoSpatial Pattern Detection in the Identification of Sandy Beach Coastal LandformsSandy coasts and their characteristic coastal landforms undergo frequent and intense disturbance that continually changes beach landform configuration on multiple scales of time and space. Coastal landforms such as dunes and storm overwashes play distinct roles in the functioning of both natural and human systems. This poster demonstrates a repeatable method of identifying sandy beach landforms from high resolution elevation data to track dynamic changes in these fluid geographic features.
Paul BuchananPanhandle Cross Country ChampionshipsPurpose: Coaching map created for my cross country team to preview course before the race day to help increase their chance of success. Goal: Use variety of good geographic data to provide runners course overview of landscape, landmarks, hills, flats, surfaces types, and key tactical locations. Action: Used information for team & individual race strategy. Race day my runners were familiar with the course before we had ever touched foot on the course & were ready to race. Result: Success!
Jason RayWhere are People, Really?This map shows a new population distribution for the State of Florida using a dasymetric mapping analysis where the US National Grid is used as a new geometry to aggregate the 2010 Census Block population using the statistical method of weighted average. This population distribution also derives from performing an additional level of analysis tying population to only parcels with housing use codes which will more accurately represent where people really live.
