EarthViews Waterway Maps Use Cases

EarthViews is grateful to the following partners who actively support our Vision. EarthViews builds alliances with private enterprise, federal, state and local agencies as well as non-profit NGO’s. These partnerships help build Open Sourced Waterway Maps that demonstrate the value of our Mission and stimulate thinking about the future of modern mapping technology and its application to aquatic environments.  Below are a few examples.

National Geographic Okavango Delta Wilderness Project.

EarthViews partnered with the National Geographic Okavango Delta Wilderness project to make impossible to reach areas in this remote African wilderness accessible with modern online imagery and data maps. Learn more.

Partnership with World Leading GIS Company Enables Waterway Maps.

EarthViews partnership with Esri allows for critical access to mapping resources providing EarthViews with a GIS platform that supports online mapping to scale. In addition our partnership brings insight to imagery by merging Esri tools with EarthViews custom apps. Learn More.

Licensed by NASA for Mapping Restricted and Remote Environments.

EarthViews is licensed by NASA forming a partnership to utilize non-motorized aerial technology. These kites and other UAV’s allow for remote sensing and access to sensitive areas like National Park lands where drones are illegal. Learn More.

Partnership Helps Port of San Diego Share Data.

To develop a better, more cohesive way to visualize assets, the port chose to work with Esri startup partner EarthViews. The web-based mapping company was uniquely suited to the project because of its expertise in integrating panoramic high-definition (HD) imagery with related high-precision aquatic data. Learn More.

Quileute Tribe Habitat Restoration and Infrastructure Protection Project.

Habitat degradation and climate change impacts are threatening critical infrastructure and salmon recovery in the Quillayute River basin. EarthViews waterway map of the river helped the Tribe secure a 5 million dollar grant to address the issues. Learn More.

Snoqualmie River Channel Migration and Habitat Quantification.

King County utilized EarthViews waterway mapping of the Snoqualmie River to better understand geomorphological processes in the river floodplain. In addition habitat assessments were conducted using EarthViews web-based map of the river. Learn More.

Crowdsourcing Maps of Georgia Rivers.

EarthViews partnered with Georgia River Network loaning them an EarthViews mapping kit. Now they have mapped hundreds of miles of Rivers around the State of Georgia. Learn More.

Enginuity Engineering Solutions Mapping Denver Metro Drainageways.

Enginuity Engineering solutions acquired contracts with Denver metro municipalities to map stormwater and drainageway infrastructure. These maps are used to catalog asset conditions as well as make recommendations for future improvements. The project decreased evaluation times and is saving money for Denver metro municipalities.

Real-Time Early Warning System for Flash Flooding.

EarthViews partnered with U of T et. al. to help visualize flood events. A virtual staff guage was developed that allows the viewer to remotely translate real-time water measurements against the background of the surrounding environment. These observations can help deploy crews for road closures ahead of site visits as well as warn surrounding communities. Learn More.

Crowdsourcing Urban Stream Maps to Empower Conservation and Recovery Action.

Coombs Creek Conservancy utilized EarthViews mapping kit to create an interactive 360-degree map of the entire length of Coombs Creek and several of it’s important tributaries located in the North Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. They included water quality measurements to help local leaders better understand stream conditions. Learn More.

EarthViews Documents Habitat Conditions Following World’s Largest Dam Removal Project.

The 108-foot Elwha Dam, completed in 1913, and the 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam, built in 1927, were removed by demolition crews beginning in 2011 as part of a $325 million project to restore the more than 70 miles of salmon habitat. EarthViews mapped the river 48 hours after the completed dam demolition to create a baseline of habitat conditions. Learn More.
