New Features in the LEARN Tool Expand Functionality for Assessing GHG Emissions from Land Use

Blue Raster is pleased to release the new build for the LEARN (Land Emissions and Removals Navigator) Tool. Built in partnership with Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) and the World Resources Institute (WRI), the LEARN Tool allows for community inventorying of the effects of land use change on greenhouse gas emissions. This tool empowers policy makers, local governments, and community members to make informed decisions on environmental and climate policy.  Read More

National Audubon Society’s Bird Migration Explorer

Audubon has partnered with Blue Raster to create the Bird Migration Explorer- an immersive application that teaches users about the joy of migration. By mapping the over 450 bird species, and visualizing the conservation needs of high priority areas, the Bird Migration Explorer tells the stories of birds across the hemisphere. This application is designed to excite, engage and inform a variety of users from birders to conservationists to researchers. Blue Raster helped make this application a reality by configuring, publishing, and visualizing data.  Read More

Mekong Monitor – Providing Vital Insight for River-dependent Communities

Blue Raster developed the Mekong Dam Monitor to provide unprecedented transparency of the flow of water and conditions of dams and reservoirs along the Mekong River. Using satellite data as well as weather and water gauge data, the monitor provides visibility into what is happening upstream, giving a comprehensive near-real time view of the current state of the Mekong basin along with historic conditions. This allows people all along the river and those advocating for more equitable and sustainable use of the river to understand and plan for changes in the levels of the river.  Read More

Estimating Community GHG Emissions from Land Use Change

As communities around the United States seek to mitigate the impact of climate change by reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the importance of land use to the GHG balance has become more apparent. About one third of human caused GHG emissions each year are sequestered in forests and trees but most communities do not include forests and trees in their inventories. To help fill this gap, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) developed the Land Emissions and Removals Navigator (LEARN) tool.  Read More
