A Visual Representation of Human Actions’ Impact on the Environment
December 13, 3:30 – 5:00 pm
Stephen Aldrich and Hung Ha Quang, Indiana State University
‘The environment is everything that isn’t me’: How geospatial techniques have changed how we understand the environment
The changing environment is a strong focus in the spatial sciences, which include geography, geology, and earth systems science. Many of these investigations deal with the power of human actions to reshape the environment, either as an intended outcome or as an unintended consequence. In this presentation, we will show the broad-reaching capabilities and utility of spatial technologies including geographic information systems (computer mapping and analysis, GIS), geographic positioning systems (GPS), and air and satellite photography (remote sensing) in environmental analysis. We will focus on monitoring the evolving human landscape via remote sensing and other geographic data, modeling the environmental impacts of human economic/social activity, and the opportunities for improved lives that these spatial technologies and techniques can bring us. We will also discuss how these technologies have transformed geography and earth science and how we understand environmental change and its consequences for humanity.
