Big Data vs. Climate Change: EMC and Citizen Scientists Team Up.
Exciting new breakthroughs leveraging big data, including best of breed data lake architecture, could help us all work together to illustrate and understand the impact of climate change. Watch as representatives from EMC, Pivotal, and the Earthwatch Institute, in association with the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, team up to enable the study of interactions between nature and climate and promote the engagement of citizen scientists using big data lakes, analytic tools and visualizations.
Designed in conjunction with the White House Climate Data Initiative, Big Data vs. Climate Change will begin with researchers working in Acadia National Park to understand bird migration and pull in the publically available citizen science data sets from eBird, iNaturalist, HawkWatch, the National Phenology Network, and the National Park Service. The outputs of analysis will be presented through visualizations that allow citizen scientists to understand how their data is being used and the potential effects of a changing climate on the subjects they study, while also providing key insights for park officials to plan the resources and tools needed to maintain park programs.
Thank you to our research partners: Earthwatch Institute, Schoodic Institute, and Acadia National Park.
