GIS presentation by Dr. Tracy DeLiberty, UD
- GIS software: support on work from home
- GIS software: support on teach from home
- Earth Day virtual Mapathon 4/22
- Roundtable discussion
Her earlier work revolved around natural land cover changes and its impact on climate, but over the last 5-10 years the focus has shifted to human-induced landcover change contributing significantly to anthropogenic releases of CO2 to atmosphere, changes in hydrologic dynamics, and alterations in habitat for almost all terrestrial species. Improved information on and understanding the landcover/landuse dynamics to environmental changes is her passion. Tracy will share with you several current research projects focused on Delaware that include estimating crop water demand using Landsat imagery, investigating cover crop practices, and looking at the impervious surface cover change in the beach communities. She will also outline the courses she teaches, and describe the Graduate GIS Certificate and the new GIScience & Data Analytics 4+1 programs.
Tracy DeLiberty is an associate professor in the Department of Geography and Spatial Sciences. Her research expertise lies in the broad areas of climatology, GIS, and remote sensing. Tracy’s interests focus on investigating land cover and land use change caused by climate, ecological, and socioeconomic drivers.
