Description

WALGA, in partnership with the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH), will host a full-day event on Measuring the Urban Forest Canopy on Thursday, 28 February at WALGA.

The event will provide information on the Urban Monitor’s Urban Canopy data products developed by the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage (DPLH) in partnership with CSIRO. The Urban Canopy data is available for years 2009, 2014 and 2016 and covers the Perth and Peel regions. The aim of the event is to improve the understanding of the data capture and analysis methodology, how to interpret the information and communicate key findings to stakeholders.

Information will be most relevant to Local Government mapping/GIS specialists, urban forest managers and environmental practitioners in the Perth and Peel regions. Please share with your colleagues.

Expert speakers include representatives from the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, CSIRO, Clean Air and Urban Landscape Hub, Local Government and WALGA.

The program will cover:
  •   capture and analysis of the Urban Canopy data
  •   interpretation of Urban Canopy data through maps and statistics
  •   use of the Urban Canopy data to inform urban forest planning
  •   opportunities to expand the capacity of the Urban Monitor data
  •   communication of technical information to target audience

Presentations will be followed by a workshop session that will explore the user experience of Urban Monitor data and derived geospatial applications, providing an opportunity to discuss any changes or additions to the current products.   

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.
