Company Contract Case Study / PDF
Map Algebra, Assignment

Urban Tree Planting Suitability

Isolated six neighborhood census tracts creating the study area within Toronto, ON, CAN to generate maps identifying areas suitable for tree planting based on several criteria.

Criteria: physical and legal restrictions of the area + analysis outputs provided from the digital elevation model.

Data Used:
Raster: Land Use (0.6m res), Digital Elevation Model (6.0m res)
Vector: Neighbourhoods, Water Linear Features, Water Area Features, Structure Area Features, Property Boundaries Linear Features

Re-projecting, Buffering vector data, Vector to raster conversions, Reclassification, Raster overlay, Surface analysis

Total Impedance + Least Cost Pathway / PDF
Map Algebra, Workshop

Raster Network Analysis

Combined Geobase digital elevation models (DEM) to generate impedance (cost/friction) values based on physical geographic criteria. The ‘least cost pathway’ was created from the impedance values. Workshop helps to outline a possible solution for road/infrastructure planning.

Physical geographic guidelines include: Path not to cross Wetlands, Path not to cross Lakes, Minimize path crossing (and running adjacent to) Rivers, Favour lower Slope, and Favour Bridges.

Competitor Proximity / PDF
Business Decision, Assignment

Census Tract Buffer Area

Geocoded and mapped Toronto shopping centres larger than 600,000 sqft to define large competitor proximity to the Yorkdale Shopping Centre study location. The project was self guided. Geocoded into ArcGIS was a current data set containing details about each shopping centre’s general information. Buffers of 10km and 20km were made around Yorkdale Shopping Centre’s centroid to split census tracts below.

Map Algebra, Assignment

Isolated Land Cover

Defined two study areas within Toronto, ON, CAN, converted the data sets provided from vector to a 2mx2m spatial resolution raster – then isolated regions to display raster composition of each section’s land cover composition.

Creation of shapefiles, Selection of records by attribute, Vector to raster conversion, Reclassification, Overlay using raster calculator

Lake Erie, Cu Contamination / PDF
Map Algebra, Workshop


Kriging interpolation model of Copper contamination sample points from Lake Erie’s lake-bed sediment. Copper TEL + PEL used to define contamination intervals. Vector files rasterized, overlaid onto Erie’s DEM for contours and bathymetry with Cu contamination. Exponential semi-variogram model for data distribution, over Spherical and Gaussian − most accurate interpolation (best error stats) of three. Data provided by instructor on contamination thresholds and original contamination data points. The interpolation results led to no values above 87.53µg/g. With PEL of 196.6µg/g, the model shows Cu contamination levels not exceeding a level where adverse effects are expected to occur frequently.

Kriging interpolation, Variogram model selection + comparison (based on error stats [mean, RMS, ASE, SRMSPE] for models [Gaussian, Spherical + Exponential]), Reclassification, Vector clip, 3D visualization in Esri ArcScene (DEM layer as custom surface, 3D Effects, fly-through video export)

Surface + Visibility Analysis / PDF
Map Algebra, Workshop

Digital Elevation Models

Combined Geobase digital elevation models (DEM) to use within the study locations surface and visibility analysis.

This included; slope, aspect, hillshading and viewshed generation. Specific to the resulting maps, each overlays specific raster surface analysis outputs to create aesthetically accurate maps based on terrain, along with observer positioning for viewshed context.

Mosaic to new raster, Reclassification, Raster overlay, Visibility analysis (viewshed), Raster surface analysis tools including: Slope [percent rise/degree] Aspect, HillShade, and Contour

Aquatic Habitat Restoration, Field Work /

Nature Conservancy of Canada  2019

Minesing Wetlands Natural Area | Oct 2019

Travelling by canoes on the narrow and winding Mad River, we located loose logs, climbed into the river (wearing chest waders and life jackets), and secured the logs to the stream banks to create valuable aquatic habitat and prevent future jams.

We paddled approximately 4-6 km downstream to the worksite and 4-6 km upstream back to the launch location (8-12 km round trip).
