As part of our work developing the California Estuary Workgroup Portal and Baydeltalive.com, CEO of 34 North, Amye Osti will present new data visualization and presentation tools on April 26th and 27th. Our new web based data visualization toolset will focus on the use of various ecological data sets to analyze the condition of the San Francisco Estuary and Sacramento Delta. We will demonstrate how users can build their own stories using OpenNRM core technologies including: Project Management, Document Management, Mapping GIS, wiki graphs and data interpolations. Come join us at the event to see OpenNRM in action to help better manage our planet. Details for the event can be found here: http://www.water.ca.gov/iep/
As part of a large modeling project using the OpenNRM technology, 34 North will present at the 2012 California Water and Environmental Modeling Forum (CWEMF) Annual Meeting. The focus of the talk will be using real time data to quickly and easily develop web based models and visualizations. David Osti will demonstrate the how to build models, projects and improve the story behind your project by displaying images, documentation, research papers, datasets, interactive maps and more in an easy to use interface.
CalGIS 2012 – the 18th Annual California GIS Conference – will take place April 11-13, 2012 at the Sheraton Sacramento. Join us as we reveal the new OpenNRM application interface and data visualization components as part of Baydeltalive.com. We will discuss in detail the future of OpenNRM as a useful SAAS product for watershed management groups, conservation groups and more. We will teach you how to set up and manage your own community with Project management tools, live conditions, wikis, news and events and data management. Catch our presentation Friday, April 13th at 1:30. Data Design for Integration and Collaboration This session contains case studies on data and system design for collaboration and to improve access to that information for the public and other investigators. Included is a case study for a northern California city and their land base. Another case study concerns access to the wealth of information collected for the delta.
Visit us Tuesday September 28th at 2:30 pm for the Integrated Science and Management Track where President, David Osti will review new science evaluation tools recently released by 34 North. The presentation will discuss using Time Series Data for Scalar Field Interpolations.
The Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference (formerly known as the CALFED Science Conference) is a forum for presenting technical analyses and results relevant to the Delta Science Program’s mission to provide the best possible, unbiased, scientific, information for water and environmental decision-making in the Bay-Delta system. The goal of the conference is to provide new information such as study results, model simulations, and analysis and syntheses of data to the broad community of scientists, engineers, resource managers, and stakeholders working on Bay-Delta issues. The organizers of this 6th Science Conference are seeking presentations toward this goal.
The conference program will feature both oral and poster presentations that provide scientific information and ideas relevant to the specific themes listed, as well as the broader overall conference theme “Ecosystem Sustainability: Focusing Science on Managing California’s Water Future.”

34 North will present OpenNRM in a full working session at the 13th annual SCGIS conference at Asilomar in Monterey, Ca. (Saturday July 10 at 10am). Our team will review the various ways to use OpenNRM including: SAAS, Enterprise, The Free OpenNRM.org community or developing your own portal using the open source core. We will walk through the steps to show how easy it is to set up a variety of features including: document library, projects, live conditions data, wiki and much more. Please join us to discover great new tools for effective, informative, collaborative natural resource management.
Community, Knowledge, Support, Conservation
The Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS) works to build community, provide knowledge, and support individuals using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and science for the conservation of natural resources and cultural heritage. The SCGIS assists conservationists worldwide in using GIS through communication, networking, scholarships, and training. Membership is open to any individual seeking assistance in the achievement of personal or organizational conservation goals.
34 North award winning websites is just one of the reasons to consider our services. During the past 5 years, 34 North has been honored with more than 7 prestigious awards including the Webby Award in Film and Entertainment (Jury and People’s Voice) for the creation of The Sundance Online Film Festival. This nomination was awarded for the same project the year before. To learn more about The Sundance Online Film Festival Project, visit our web project gallery.
Time Magazine Coolest websites of the year also bestowed 34 North with the honor for the creation of Sundance back in 2005. Each year 34 North created a new experience for the project with new films, new filmmakers, new artwork and new behind the scenes footage. It was a very exciting project for 34 North. We learned so much from the wonderful staff at the Sundance Institute, but more than anything we loved working with all the talented filmmakers.
34 North was also awarded prizes for Xprize, OpenNRM and our visualization services.
34 North is participating in the OGC IO experiment using our client application OpenNRM and contributing our experience to the development of WaterML as it relates to client applications. Here’s the skinny:
This interoperability experiment will advance the development of WaterML 2.0, test its use with various OGC service standards (SOS, WFS, WMS and CSW), as well as investigate its interaction with GroundwaterML (GWML), in the context of sharing groundwater data between the USA and Canada.
The use of O&M compliant WaterML 2.0, GWML and OGC web services for data exchange will allow for easier access and interpretation of water data. We expect the IE will result in further development of WaterML 2.0, including a schema, example instances, and documentation describing the schema. It will also result in a documented evaluation of the compatibility of WaterML 2.0 with OGC services. In particular, the groundwater datasets contain a large number of locations with a small number of observations at each location, so we expect that the project will discover issues related to data discovery (via catalogs) and delivery (via the possibly high overhead of delivering observations). New and upgraded web services amongst participants are also expected, increasing the overall availability of water data and the interoperability of water information systems, particularly between the USA and Canada. Development of client applications is a secondary concern; the focus of work is testing information models and service delivery mechanisms.
34 North will present the next generation of The Indigenous Mapping Network using our powerful collaboration tool: OpenNRM. At the annual IMN conference hosted by the Suquamish Tribe Kiana Lodge in beautiful Poulsbo, WA, attendees will discuss “Restoring our Homeplaces” using next generation web tools to bring communities together to discuss land use, ecosystem restoration, endangered species, science, water quality and much more. The 34 North presentation is Friday June 4, at 10 am. Our staff will be available to answer questions throughout the conference.
IEP (Interagency Ecological Program) Agencies cooperatively hold public workshops and other events to discuss and review IEP’s monitoring and research activities and results. 34 North will demo Baydeltalive.com and USGS GR Tools with USGS Scientist Jon Burau. Our presentation will demonstrate to the scientific community how to effectively use BDL for viewing and analyzing sensor data provided by CDEC.
