It goes on to stress how the Arctic is becoming increasingly important in international geopolitical policymaking due to its significant oil and natural gas resources, how warming temperatures are increasing international access to its waters, and the how countries as diverse as Canada, China, Russia, and the U.S. see the Arctic region in their strategic policymaking. It concludes by stressing that the Arctic can no longer be viewed as a region immune from international conflict and presents recommendations for the U.S ...


Visualizing Scholarly Communication, Nina Collins, Matthew Hannah Oct 2018

Visualizing Scholarly Communication, Nina Collins, Matthew Hannah

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

University libraries across the country are investing in Digital Humanities and digital scholarship initiatives, providing support for research and teaching using digital tools and methods. Because digital scholarship offers scholars new ways to visualize and analyze their research, which communicates such research in new ways, it has clear lines of connection with scholarly communications. Combining these two unique areas of library activity offers opportunities for new library research by leveraging methods from DH to tackle problems in scholarly communications. Researchers at Purdue are collaborating on just such a project by applying digital tools to the analysis of predatory publishing. In ...

The Impact Of Management On The Movement And Home Range Size Of Indiana's Eastern Hellbender Salamanders, Emily B. Mccallen, Bart T. Kraus, Nick G. Burgmeier, Rod N. Williams Nov 2016

The Impact Of Management On The Movement And Home Range Size Of Indiana's Eastern Hellbender Salamanders, Emily B. Mccallen, Bart T. Kraus, Nick G. Burgmeier, Rod N. Williams

Purdue GIS Day

Eastern hellbenders (Cryptobranchus alleganiensis alleganiensis) are a large, fully aquatic salamander species distributed throughout watersheds in the eastern United States. In Indiana, hellbenders were once found in tributaries of the Ohio River and the Wabash River but are now restricted to a single river in the southern portion of the state. Monitoring within the Blue River over twenty years has revealed a steady decrease in the total abundance of hellbenders and a shift towards older individuals in the age structure of the population. Concerned over the apparent lack of recruitment, the Indiana department of natural resources performed a series of ...

Introduction To The New Indiana Geospatial Coordinate System (Ingcs), Matthew Badger

Purdue GIS Day

The Indiana Geospatial Coordinate System (InGCS) was approved and adopted by INDOT in 2015 and will soon be the primary coordinate reference system used on INDOT survey and design projects. Other agencies and organizations in the geospatial arena are encouraged to make use of this system of low distortion projections as well. Many of the more widely used geospatial software vendors have since included the InGCS in their platforms to support their customers’ needs. Please refer to the InGCS webpage at www.in.gov/indot/InGCS.htm for additional information.

Predicting U. S. Presidential Elections: From 1900 Until Today, Richard L. Hogan Nov 2016

Predicting U. S. Presidential Elections: From 1900 Until Today, Richard L. Hogan

Purdue GIS Day

This presentation is scheduled for the weekend before the presidential election of 2016. By then, we might all need a break from pollsters and predictions, although we still might be looking for some assurance that this will not be the end of Western Civilization as we knew it. Toward that end, a little historical perspective on presidential elections since 1900, complete with cool maps, of course, indicating partisanship by state, will illustrate several important hypotheses that the data suggest we might incorporate in our efforts to predict the future by explaining the past. Neither candidate has approved this message.

Analyzing The Native-Exotic Richness Relationship Using Native Beta Diversity, Gabriela C. Nunez-Mir, Songlin Fei Nov 2016

Analyzing The Native-Exotic Richness Relationship Using Native Beta Diversity, Gabriela C. Nunez-Mir, Songlin Fei

Purdue GIS Day

Invasion paradox, a change of direction in native-exotic richness relationships (NERRs) from negative at small scales to positive at large scales, has been shown to exist in many environments. A major explanation for these patterns is environmental heterogeneity, and to a lesser extent, species pool size. It is likely that a combination of these factors is producing these patterns and determines if and how they appear in certain environments. Beta diversity, which describes the heterogeneity of species composition among assemblages and as the scalar between local richness and regional richness (species pool size), could serve as a proxy for these ...
