Bicycles: An Alternative form of Transportation in the Netherlands
  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/b3a8b7c2f05644c5a784d924eed3a054
Description:
The streets are commonplace to all of us. They are a playground to some and a time limit to others. Many of us would love to see the street as a safe place for communities to gather and for people to play and recreate. As long as it does not limit us to work in time. Growing up in the Netherlands I have never seen these two as a conflict, and with the help of some maps, I will show you how road infrastructure in the Netherlands can accommodate both these groups.

Coastal Marine Life History of Mount Desert Island 1903-2021
  • https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/a3808235a39342cb8e5b19359eb893e8
Description:
Mount Desert Island, located off the east coast of Maine, is completely surrounded by intertidal environments. Throughout the 1900s, data was collected and recorded in notebooks regarding intertidal life by numerous researchers, followed by entry into a spreadsheet by Michael Hays, a citizen scientist who worked with the MDIBL (Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory). In present day, these data can be put into a map thanks to ArcGIS Pro. These data includes large amounts of information regarding marine life around the coastal environments of MDI, such as species common and Latin names, locations observed (where on the island along with Lat. and Long.), observation year, along with some brief notes about each observation.

Cēsu Pluriversitāte: (un)learning through the landscape, June 28, 2020
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNGPBOEOjTA&t=2296s
Description:
In the midst of the current climate (COVID) our orbit has become smaller, but not less valuable. Limitations can bring to the surface observations that would not have been visible before. The familiar paths within the neighborhood hold unnoticed details, questions, and knowledge. Landscapes consist of natural and human shaped relics that mark human values and skills. However, the familiar sometimes feels so known that we stop observing the way new landscapes draw curiosity. Can we unlearn the knowledge that clouds our minds for new thinking? When we aim for a deeper connection with the outer we can also better understand the inner landscape. They are inseparable and by changing one - we shape both. [show more]

Increasingly, scientists are pulling observations and data from historic records to get a clearer picture of the natural world of the past to understand how the present is changing. [show more]
