Building Climate Resilience: Translating Climate Data into Risk Assessments
Climate change affects us all. It is an urgent issue that requires practical solutions to mitigate its impacts. Data is at the center of understanding this challenge. In this informative webinar, we will explore how data can be leveraged to translate climate change projections into tangible hazard and risk assessments at the local level.
The webinar will cover a range of topics: including flood, fire, heat, drought, population health, and critical infrastructure, among others. We will also highlight our partner and customer experiences in this field and present key results from our participation in recent OGC pilots on Climate Resilience and Disaster Response. We will also be joined by special guests sharing their experience in the AgriTech sector, where gathering metrics and data from sensors is helping to reduce the demand from farming on precious resources like water for irrigation.
Through live demos, attendees will gain practical knowledge in accessing climate services from USGS & Environment Canada and how to convert climate model NetCDF outputs into more GIS-friendly formats like geodatabase & GeoJSON.
Finally, we will address the significant gaps and challenges that remain in assessing climate-related hazards and risks, and explore how FME can play a critical role in addressing these gaps. Join us for this important discussion on how you can use FME to build resilience and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
