Apollo News Snippets – August 2019

  • Yep its National Oyster Day on August 5th and in honor of this random holiday, my Google search of the month was, “GIS and oysters.” If you get lucky, you might find this paper on oyster bed restoration by Theuerkauf et al from North Caroline State University. In their research, the authors use GIS models combined with satellite imagery-derived chlorophyll concentrations from algae to determine suitable locations for restored oyster beds – I love the combination of GIS models and satellite imagery (of course!).
  • During July we reviewed the online GIS resources of New Jersey’s second largest city and well they were rather scant, so this month we hope to rebound when we review Las Cruces, New Mexico’s GIS resources! And well, not sure this is a rebound as much as another turnover…
    Las Cruces, NM GIS Website (no true landing page, the Maps/Data link will take you here)
    Las Cruces, NM GIS Contacts (it appears the GIS savvy folks are in the Public Works department)

    Las Cruces, NM GIS Web Map
    Las Cruces, NM GIS Map Collections (same as website link, sorry!)
    Las Cruces, NM GIS Direct Downloads (yep I know these are PDFs but that’s the best I could find)
