Iracambi GIS - on the back burner

The Iracambi GIS project is underway - but we've hit a few potholes along the road, and have decided to put the project on the back burner for now.

Here's why. To run the project effectively we need to update and replace our software. We’re aiming to get ArcGIS and IDRISI Selva, but due to cost issues, it's just not possible at the moment. We’ve been in contact with Clark Labs, the producers of IDRISI, but our next few projects may have to rely on Arc instead. This is not a major problem and we’re sure we can utilize the programs we already have!

In the meantime our data gathering is going well. We’re very appreciative of the wide variety of imagery available through USGS Global Visualization Viewer, offering a long history to choose from for our time analysis and impact project. Imagery dates all the way back to September of 1972, and we hope to have as full a set of aerial imagery as possible by the end of March.

We are going to put this project on hold for a little while, as the software issues have made it challenging to continue. However, GIS remains an important part of Iracambi’s future, for researchers, our community, and helping us see where we’re at in the region. Thank you for your interest and support and we'll be back soon!
