WRA GIS and Biology Experts Featured in Spring 2016 BayGeo Journal

Two WRA staff members, GIS analyst Michael Rochelle and biologist Tanner Harris, recently authored a feature article in the latest issue of BayGeo Journal. The article, “Bay Checkerspot Butterfly Dispersal Corridor Modeling for Coyote Ridge”, focuses on a case study using GIS corridor modeling to assess potential impacts to a federally threatened butterfly species associated with a proposed development project. The corridor model was used to help design the project to avoid prime dispersal habitat for the butterfly, helping to ensure the survival of this threatened species.
