Event description

Description

The Lab & Learn today at 11am will no longer have the online meeting option. Instead, we are offering a webinar on September 11th at 9:00am. An invite will follow for the webinar.

The in-person presentation will still take place today from 11am-12pm at the Exchange Lab.

Thank you for your understanding,

The BCDevExchange Team



Explore the definition, creation, development, and application of Hex grids for the Species and Ecosystems Information Systems Modernization (SEISM) project here at the lab. Hexagonal grids present some interesting mapping and database challenges. These are discussed as well as options to address issues and technological challenges. Two provincial data sets have been migrated to a hex framework to further explore and visualize what the hex world could look like.

Who will benefit from attending?

If you are in the ecology or landscape inventory and management sectors or even a fan of maps, this is a great opportunity for you. You’ll learn how hexagonal grids are gaining favour in their application against environment data and how they can be leveraged for BC.
