Green Space GIS is proud to provide volunteer data management support for Skytruth, a non-profit organization that promotes environmental awareness and protection with geo-spatial technology. Green Space GIS is working closely with Skytruth in it’s responsee to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. We help collect and archive GIS data as it is released from government sources. These data are vital to help them correlate official estimates of the spatial extent and volume of oil that is being released into the gulf.
Green Space has crafted custom scripts to download the most current data and archive it on our servers for future reference and is setting up a GeoServer for spatial access to the data layers. Further, Green Space is working on ways to enable the project team and other parties to easily access and load data into the own custom maps. These data and analysis offer an impartial analysis of the state of the spill.
