//Local Consumption - Global Impact
The Wildlife Conservation Society wanted a fast way of distributing 250 global 1x1km resolution rasters. Each raster describes how each country of our world influences each other. Then is also possible to see how areas of specific scientific interest are affected. Areas such as the world's Tiger Conservation Landscapes.
Additionally, they wanted a method to allow users to define their own areas of interest and be delivered the relevant, non-precalcualted statistics back at web (not analysis) speed!
For this tall order we pushed all the rasters into Google Maps Engine. This allowed us to easily display them on a Google Map. Additionally, country spatial data was managed inside PostGIS, allowing us to provide the user with what is effectively real time image analysis in GDAL.Go and check out Over the Horizon to see your effect on the globe!.
The Wildlife Conservation Society, founded in 1895, has the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe. Today, they protect many of the world’s iconic creatures across the world, including gorillas in the Congo, tigers in India, wolverines in the Yellowstone Rockies, and ocean giants in our world’s amazing seascapes.
Spatial Analyst and Developer at Wildlife Conservation Society
"Sparkgeo is the most responsive group of spatial developers I've worked with. They would have been happy to deliver a single, turnkey product with relatively few requirements from me, but our complex application required a lot of collaborative problem-solving, and with Sparkgeo, every problem had an innovative solution. Whenever necessary, they created scripts and tools to tie together a set of cutting-edge, sometimes-finicky components, all in close consultation with me and with an eye on the big picture. And they'd make it seem easy. "
With certified Google Maps & Google Earth developers, Sparkgeo leads in custom Google Maps development. We are listed on the Google Earth Outreach list for our work with the non-profit community.
