Watershed Management Priority Index wins Best Spatial Analysis award
Thrive's data partners with UTC's IGTLab have received first and second place awards in Best Spatial Analysis at this year's Tennessee Geographic Information Council's annual conference! First place went to Charlie Mix, for his work on Thrive's Watershed Management Priority Index (WMPI), which synthesizes seven data layers to identify important land for the protection of water quality in the greater Chattanooga region. The index will be a key tool in the work of the Natural Treasures Alliance moving forward. Nyssa Hunt has won second place in the Best Spatial Analysis category for her work on non-native gecko mapping (not related to Thrive). Congratulations and a big thank you to Charlie Mix and Nyssa Hunt from UTC's IGTLab for all the work they've done analyzing and modeling data for Thrive!
