Topic: Vegetation Treatment Mapping and Post Fire Response: GIS projects at the New Mexico Forest & Watershed Restoration Institute
Patti Dappen is the GIS Program Manager at NMFWRI. She has supported institute projects ranging from object-oriented land cover classification using eCognition, using LiDAR for forest monitoring assessments, and developing web mapping applications such as the New Mexico Fire Viewer during the recent Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon fire. She has taught GIS and Remote Sensing courses at NMHU and currently serves on the NMGIC board.
Joe Zebrowski is the Special Programs Manager at NMFWRI. Bringing expertise from an extensive career in GIS, his focus is on using geospatial technologies in support of collaborative conservation and watershed management. Most recently, Joe worked with NM State Forestry and NM EDAC to build an ArcGIS Hub site to support collaboration around the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon fire.
Katie Withnall is a GIS Specialist at NMFWRI. She supports the institute through monitoring and mapping with drones, developing web applications and geospatial training courses, and large-scale environmental data collection, including spearheading the Vegetation Treatment Geodatabase which was recently awarded funding to be expanded at the national level.
Dana Heusinkveld recently joined the GIS team at the NMFWRI as a GIS Specialist. Her experience spans from imagery science to human geography while working for the public and private sectors, as well as teaching GIS. Dana continues to support the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon fire Hub site and published a StoryMap covering the fire and NMFWRI’s efforts to help those impacted.
