Data USA

In 2014, Deloitte, Datawheel, and Cesar Hidalgo, Professor at the MIT Media Lab and Director of Collective Learning, came together to embark on an ambitious journey -- to understand and visualize the critical issues facing the United States in areas like jobs, skills and education across industry and geography. And, to use this knowledge to inform decision making among executives, policymakers and citizens. Our team, comprised of economists, data scientists, designers, researchers and business executives, worked for over a year with input from policymakers, government officials and everyday citizens to develop Data USA, the most comprehensive website and visualization engine of public US Government data. Data USA tells millions of stories about America. Through advanced data analytics and visualization, it tells stories about: places in America—towns, cities and states; occupations, from teachers to welders to web developers; industries--where they are thriving, where they are declining and their interconnectedness to each other; and education and skills, from where is the best place to live if you’re a computer science major to the key skills needed to be an accountant. Data USA puts public US Government data in your hands. Instead of searching through multiple data sources that are often incomplete and difficult to access, you can simply point to Data USA to answer your questions. Data USA provides an open, easy-to-use platform that turns data into knowledge. It allows millions of people to conduct their own analyses and create their own stories about America – its people, places, industries, skill sets and educational institutions. Ultimately, accelerating society’s ability to learn and better understand itself.

DEMs from aerial lidar surveys are available as bare earth (ground), highest hit (first or all return), or intensity (strength of laser pulse) tiles. Some datasets also have orthophtotographs available. The DEMs are in common GIS formats (e.g. ESRI Arc Binary) and are compressed (zipped) to reduce their size. Lidar point cloud data and on-demand processing allows users to define an area of interest, as well as subset of the data (e.g. “ground returns only"), and then to download the results of this query in ASCII or LAS binary point cloud formats. Also available is the option to generate custom derivative products such as digital elevation models (DEMs) produced with user-defined resolution and algorithm parameters, and downloaded in a number of different file formats. The system will also generate geomorphic metrics such as hillshade and slope maps, and will dynamically generate visualizations of the data products for display in the web browser or Google Earth.

RDA: Research Data Alliance (homepage)

global

The Research Data Alliance (RDA) enables open, interoperable, global sharing of research data and builds the social, technical and cross-disciplinary bridges. It has more than 11k members from 145 countries. The RDA was launched as a community-driven initiative in 2013 by the European Commission, the United States Government's National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Australian Government’s Department of Innovation with the goal of building the social and technical infrastructure to enable open sharing and re-use of data. RDA has a grass-roots, inclusive approach covering all data lifecycle stages, engaging data producers, users and stewards, addressing data exchange, processing, and storage. It has succeeded in creating the neutral social platform where international research data experts meet to exchange views and to agree on topics including social hurdles on data sharing, education and training challenges, data management plans and certification of data repositories, disciplinary and interdisciplinary interoperability, as well as technological aspects. The RDA Foundation provides the core business operations of RDA and represents RDA globally. RDA addresses the need for open and interoperable sharing of research data and builds the social, technical and cross-disciplinary links to enable such sharing on a global scale. RDA Members come together through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed by experts from all around the world – from academia, private sector and government. Participation in RDA is open to anyone who agrees to its guiding principles of openness, consensus, balance and harmonisation, with a community-driven, non-profit approach. In an effort to build discipline or domain specific communities, the RDA introduced Communities of Practice (CoP) to its membership in December 2020. CoPs investigate, discuss and provide knowledge and skills within a specific discipline and/or research domain. Composed of experts from that area, CoPs are committed to directly or indirectly enabling data sharing, exchange and/or interoperability by serving as THE coordination focal point for RDA in those specific disciplines/research domains.

A survey of pollinator and plant interactions in meadow and grassland habitats of Marin County, California

marin

Bees and other pollinators play an essential role in maintaining the plant biodiversity of our planet's landscape through pollination. Few baseline studies or monitoring programs have addressed concerns over local, regional and even worldwide declines in bee populations. We established 22 collection sites in meadow and grassland habitats in Marin County, California to determine which bee genera were present and which plants they were visiting. Some of these habitats were located in National Park Service natural areas and wildlands, including Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Point Reyes National Seashore. During this study we collected a total of 109 bee, wasp and fly specimens and from among these we identified seven genera of bees. The bees were found on 44 species of plants, only 11 of which were native to Marin County. The European honey bee (Apis mellifera), a non-native pollinator, was found on 37 species of plants, 28 of which were non-native.

Frontiers in Environmental Science | Land Use Dynamics

Land use and land use change issues are very much at the forefront of earth, environmental, and social sciences. However, despite great efforts in saving or protecting land and soil, and to hinder urban sprawl, there is still a wide gap between the messages that the scientific community and policymakers wish to convey and the reality we detect via satellite observations. Land Use Dynamics is aimed at publishing innovative insights into land use variation and the temporal dynamics of land use change, as well as highlighting the driving forces behind land dynamics and their socio-ecological feedbacks. This includes, but is not limited to: (1) Exploring the diverse environments covering all Earth’s continents to better understand the breadth of land use dynamics on Earth in the past, at present, and in the future; (2) Historical land use change analyses and scenario studies with a thematic focus on ‘used land’ and anthropogenic activity; and (3) Cities and urban areas as hotspots of land use intensification and resulting social-ecological conflicts. Studies concerning social science, anthropology, and economy, as well as the classical environmental disciplines, are welcome, as we are eager to broaden engagement on key issues and foster interdisciplinary research. Critical viewpoints that question prevailing attitudes, orthodoxies and preconceptions will also be welcomed.

Increases in soil and woody biomass carbon stocks as a result of rangeland riparian restoration

ca

Here we examine the potential of riparian zone restoration to enhance carbon sequestration. We measured soil and woody biomass carbon stocks, as well as soil carbon properties, in a long-term chronosequence of 42 streambank revegetation projects in northern California rangelands, varying in restoration age from 1 to 45 years old. Where revegetation was successful, we found that soil carbon measured to 50 cm depth increased on the floodplain and on the upper bank landform. Restored sites also exhibited trends toward increased soil carbon permanence, including an increased C:N ratio and lower fulvic acid: humic acid ratio.

Integrated geomorphic and geodynamic modeling of a potential blind thrust in the San Francisco Bay area, California

marin

In Marin County, California, systematic spatial patterns in landscape topography and geomorphic indices suggest that the region north of Mt. Tamalpais is experiencing differential rock uplift. We suggest that a blind thrust underlies the elevated area, creating the observed topography and possibly resolving a slip discrepancy between the Hayward and San Andreas Fault in this region. We have developed and implemented an integrative approach that combines observations from tectonic deformation and geomorphic properties to identify a potential blind thrust beneath Marin County.

Tree species effects on topsoil carbon stock and concentration are mediated by tree species type, mycorrhizal association, and N-fixing ability at the global scale

Selection of appropriate tree species is an important forest management decision that may affect sequestration of carbon (C) in soil. Here, we quantitatively synthesized 850 observations from field studies that were conducted in a common garden or monoculture plantations to assess how tree species type, mycorrhizal association and N-fixing ability affect topsoil C concentration and stock, and how such effects were influenced by environmental factors such as geographical location and climate. We compared broadleaf vs. conifer species, arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) vs. ectomycorrhizal (ECM) associations, and N-fixing vs. non-N-fixing species.

Results from a survey of monarch butterfly overwintering sites in California show that there are more monarchs overwintering in the state this year than last. Volunteers with the Xerces Society’s Western Monarch Thanksgiving Count visited 187 sites and tallied a total of 271,924 monarchs. Although more monarchs were counted, the average number of monarchs per site is not significantly different than last year’s count, and this year’s population estimate represents a 39% decline from the long term average. The number of monarchs counted this year is but a fraction of the 1.2 million monarchs recorded in the late 90s.
