Modeling Land-Change Processes and Patterns

Daniel G. Brown
School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, USA

The imperatives of understanding how land use and land cover changes both contribute to, are affected by, and can serve as adaptations to climate and other global changes require a greater degree of integration of knowledge across natural and human systems, and across scales. Spatial models have been key tools for representing and evaluating our understanding of global change processes, and the integration human and social processes into global models has begun at some levels. In this talk, I reflect on the findings of a recent NRC report on "Advancing Land Change Modeling" and its implications for how to advance this effort. Drawing on multiple research projects in which I have been involved that use models to formalize our understanding of land-change processes, I describe opportunities for developing models that bridge local-to-global scales, incorporate institutions in social process representations, and couple natural and social processes. Advancing in these directions has the potential to improve both our understanding of the feedbacks between human and natural systems in future Earth system dynamics and the tools available for designing policies and plans that are adaptive to those same dynamics.

Analysing and Improving Volunteered Geographic Information for Humanitarian Activities

Alexander Zipf
Department of Geography, Heidelberg University, Germany

Up-to-date and comprehensive geographical information is essential for the planning and implementation of humanitarian aid in the context of crises and disasters. In addition to the established data sources of professional organisations - such as remote sensing, government and commercial data - alternative options have gained importance in recent years. These new options include different types of information that are contributed by volunteers e.g. geographical information based on disaster mapping activities on platforms such as OpenStreetMap, but also spatial information extracted from various social media platforms like Twitter or Flickr. The automated evaluation of these data from social media currently presents an interesting challenge. Other important questions are: How can we analyse, evaluate and improve the quality of these new data? And how can we use them effectively in the context of disaster management? The presentation will discuss a number of methods that we have devised to help us find answers, in particular with respect to OSM quality assessment and improvement, the development of new microtasking apps such as MapSwipe and also the spatiotemporal analysis of social media data.
