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 Lars Pomara, Bjorn Brooks, and Danny Lee 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 May 16, in Asheville, NC, 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. Partners from the University of North Carolina Asheville's National Environmental Modeling and Analysis Center will be on hand to assist with workshop facilitation.
