A well-designed map tells a story and communicates a specific message to the viewer. At the Geos Institute, we understand the power of an accurate, engaging map in moving your project forward. Our projects utilize high quality, accurate maps in a variety of digital and paper formats to meet your needs.
We provide custom and locally-specific analysis of spatial data, including data on land use, climate change, carbon storage, energy corridors, intact ecosystems, hydrology, and others issues. We can help you identify potential climate refugia, areas of high importance for water resources, or corridors for wildlife facing climate change. Our team maximizes spatial data to provide the information you need to complete your project successfully.
Leveraging Esri’s data driven pages functionality with custom python scripts, we created a series of twelve maps to show the intrinsic potential of Coho salmon in the Rogue River Basin.

As a companion to the book Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World: Ecology and Conservation, we created an interactive web mapping application to give readers a virtual tour of the ten biogeographically unique regions of the world featured in the book.
Local leaders often obtain local projections as the first step in understanding their vulnerabilities to climate change. At the Geos Institute, our staff scientists prepare local climate change projections based on the best available climate change science, presented at scales that are appropriate for local decision making.

In order to assess locations that may prove beneficial for beaver introduction, we created a suitability model in GIS. The model is based on existing peer-reviewed literature on dam-building beaver requirements. The maps below represent the criteria layers that were used as model input.
