Mapping Coral Reefs in the U.S. Virgin Islands (Google Maps Version API v3)

This Google Maps viewer displays unanalyzed PPGIS data from a current project, in collaboration with NOAA, where occupational divers identify coral reef conditions and threats in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This PPGIS data collection is ongoing and currently displays results from about 90 divers. Please be patient to allow the thousands of markers to overlay on top of Google Maps.

Southland Region of New Zealand (Google Maps Version API v3)

This Google Maps viewer displays PPGIS data collected from a 2011 study of the Southland Region in New Zealand. The PPGIS project was a collaboration with the New Zealand Department of Concservation (DOC). The Google map viewer shows the location of different value "hotspots" generated from the PPGIS data. Click on the "View Layers" drop down menu to turn different hotspot layers on/off.

Kangaroo Island, Australia (Google Maps Version API v3)

This is a Google Maps viewer that displays Kangaroo Island (South Australia) resident development preferences collected from two different PPGIS studies in 2004 and 2010. Kangaroo Island is an international tourism destination with high conservation value and is subject to tourism development pressure in areas proximate to national parks and coastal areas. This may be the first longitudinal PPGIS study completed with the same population. Click on the drop down menu "View Layers" to display the development preferences of residents over time.

Baffle Basin Region, Queenlsand, Australia (Google Maps Version API v3)

This is a Google Maps viewer that displays Baffle Basin resident values and development preferences collected in 2014. The Baffle Basin region has relatively low levels of development (primarily coastal) but emerging development issues include new residential and tourism development, and the potential for mining activiites. Click on the drop down menu "View Layers" to display the values and development preferences of residents.

Grand County Colorado (Google Maps Version API v3)

This is a Google Maps viewer that displays ecosystem service "hotspots" in Grand County, Colorado. The data was collected from Grand County residents in 2010 in an exploratory study to determine the strengths and weaknesses of using PPGIS for identifying ecosystem services. The study was completed in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey and the Center for Spatial Information at Central Washington University. Click on the different map "layers" to display the different ecosystem service hotspots in Grand County. Several "threat" hotspots from wildfire and human development are also shown.
