Integrating ecosystem data and models at Yellowstone National Park

We are developing the capability to dynamically integrated a wide range of ecosystem data and models through the use of visualization.

Here's a frame from such an integration (circa 2003). This one synthesizes MSU data on wolf and elk movement, with Landsat-based remote sensing of land cover and geothermals, and a model of spatial snowpack dynamics.

Follow this link to some sample video of an early wolf/elk/snow/GT integration.

Follow this link to some visualizations expressing subsets of the integrated system (e.g. snow & elk but no wolves).
