Spatialized data: environment and society

  • Category: Science Day
  • Dates: May 30, 2023
  • Timetable : From 9am to 5:30pm
  • Location: Amphitheatre of Agropolis, Montpellier - 1000 Av. Agropolis, 34000 Montpellier

Announcement and Call for Contributions.

Organized by the Labex CeMEB and NUMEV and the UMR TETIS.

A set of data spatialization techniques is currently available in ecology and environmental sciences to perform detailed diagnoses of the distribution of habitats, species, populations and individuals in space, as well as to track the movements of animals. The development of sensors and associated communication networks now allows the deployment of systems to characterize the environment of the foot of the plant on a global scale. 

The information acquired is used in the field of spatial ecology to better understand how intra- and interspecific ecological interactions are organized in space and time. It is also used to produce, analyze, model and interpret geographic information essential for monitoring the environment under global change and has shown its usefulness for the sustainable management of natural environments and agricultural, forest and artificial areas.

Moreover, meeting society's needs implies going beyond the production of observation data. They can be integrated into modeling or decision-making tools, taking into account their uncertainties, synthesized in the form of indicators in observatories, or mobilized in consultation processes or new forms of open science (living lab, etc.). Their multiple impacts (socio-economic, environmental, democratic, etc.) can also be evaluated.

This day is composed of three sessions with two introductory talks followed by presentations (10 mn) selected from the call for papers. Flash presentations (3mn oral plus poster) will also be possible during the coffee and lunch breaks.
