Forest Carbon Index

Forest Carbon IndexBlue Raster has created a new application for the Forest Carbon Index (FCI) which compiles and displays trends relating to biological, economic, governance, investment, and market readiness conditions for every forest and country in the world, and helps provide a reference for the best places and countries to make investments in forest conservation.  Designed by Blue Raster for Resources for the Future, and created using ArcGIS Desktop and the Flex API, this new application incorporates four different maps into a single tool that assesses the most  effective places to invest in forest conservation.  Resources for the Future hopes that this powerful tool will help policy makers and investors better identify where to invest their limited resources.

Adaptation Atlas

Blue Raster is pleased to announce a partnership with Resources for the Future, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that conducts research on environmental, energy, natural resource and public health issues, to create an interactive mapping tool that will track and present the effects of climate change on populations around the world.  The application, created using ArcGIS Server 9.3.1 and Flex API, allows users to track historical environmental patterns around the world, as well as to predict the consequences on regions of various hypothetical scenarios, which could include factors of pollution control, energy and transportation policy, land and water use, hazardous waste disposal, climate change, biodiversity and ecosystem management, public health, and environmental challenges in developing countries.  We hope that this user-friendly tool will help generate support for Resources for the Future’s goals of improving environmental and natural resource policymaking worldwide.
