Data visualization in the Galapagos islands

Woodbury Shortridge

Like many of our clients, Galapagos Conservatory approached us with an important story to tell but with potentially insurmountable challenges to get that story out. A site of global importance since Charles Darwin first set foot on its land, policy makers in Galapagos have long sought to understand the major factors influencing ongoing changes in its biodiversity. There has been an increasing urgent need for an early warning system to detect and predict the impacts of climate change on its species and ecosystems which, in turn, sustain its economy. Through this need, Galapagos Vital Signs was born, with our job being to provide up-to-date information through a satellite-based monitoring system related to biodiversity and other environmental indicators, such as sea surface temperatures and precipitation. This data is used to facilitate ongoing efforts by conservationists, scientists, agriculturists, tour operators, divers, the fishing sector, and others working in the Archipelago.
