March 2022 Chapter meeting: Mapping Landscapes on the Go

Wednesday, March 2: Mapping Landscapes on the Go

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Landscape Ecology Program has developed a mobile version of TEAM (Texas Ecosystem Analytical Mapper) called TEAMgo to allow Texas citizens to utilize and contribute to the Ecological Mapping Systems of Texas (EMS) data on handheld devices. The TEAMgo application is a free, easy to use, interactive mapping tool accessible on a mobile phone that assists users in understanding Texas habitats and integrates vegetation data with land management and resource planning of all types.

So be sure to bring your tablet or mobile phone. So be sure to bring your tablet or mobile phone and have this URL handy: https://tpwd.texas.gov/gis/teamgo/ Works best with Chrome. Quick tutorial

Wildlife biologists, land managers, naturalists, planners, and conservationists can use TEAMgo to view the EMS data in relationship to their current location or property. Users can use TEAM to view and print the EMS data in relationship to other natural feature layers such as soils, geology, hydrology and ecoregion.

Schedule:

  • 6:30 Seed Swap, Camera Roll and Socializing
  • 7:00 Introduction and Announcements
  • 7:20 Featured Presentation
  • 8:45 Adjournment

We’ll visit a Scyene Overlook and JJ Beeman Trail on Piedmont Ridge in southeast Dallas the following weekend to practice our TEAMgo skills. Info here.

Our Speaker

Wendy Anderson, spatial ecologist at Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), works to analyze habitats and ecosystems across Texas. She earned her B.A in Biology and Spanish, as well as her M.Sc. in environmental sciences and MPA from Indiana University where she focused on grasslands, water resources, and bird conservation. In 2016 she was hired by TPWD as the botanist for the Landscape Ecology lab, where she surveyed plants across the state. Since then, she has worked on projects including mapping habitat for the Houston Toad, and remotely sensing open water across the state. A master naturalist herself in the Capital Area Chapter, she loves working with plants, outdoor education, and restoration.

Seed Swap

Got seeds? Let’s swap. Bring packaged and labeled seeds to NTMN chapter meeting. Swap table will be ready by 6:00 p.m. Empty envelopes will be provided at the table for your just swapped seeds. It’s a fun way to try new varieties and, yes, maybe save some money.

Camera Roll

As usual, show up or tune in between 6:30 and 7 pm for an array of photos by TMNs. Send your favorite photos to Ashleigh Miller.
