GIS Guest Lecture
GIS for Mapping Hydraulic Fracturing and Planning Land Conservation
Based in Ithaca, Karen Edelstein is the Regional Coordinator for FracTracker.org, a supporting organization of the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies. FracTracker uses GIS to share maps, data, and analyses of the global oil and gas industry. Edelstein is also the GIS Coordinator for the Finger Lakes Land Trust and has been using GIS in that capacity since 1999 to help plan land conservation efforts for the Finger Lakes region's gorges, forests, lakeshore and farmland. All UB students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend.
