The Landscape Dynamics Assessment Tool (LanDAT) can help natural resource conservation practitioners monitor and assess impacts on changing landscapes and the ecological services and benefits they provide to people. With funding support from the Appalachian Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC), Eastern Threat Center scientists are developing LanDAT based on an annually-updated set of spatial data products used to visualize broad patterns in vegetation change at large scales. An interactive workshop on November 8 at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area will provide an opportunity for natural resource managers, planners, spatial data analysts, and others to tour LanDAT and learn how it can be applied locally and regionally through presentations, discussions, and hands-on activities. For more information, visit the workshop website or contact Lars Pomara at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-257-4357.
