Using GIS to analyze Marcellus Shale impacts in Pennsylvania

The Nature Conservancy recently released a study analyzing potential habitat impacts of energy development – including Marcellus Shale – in Pennsylvania over the next 20 years.

The presentation includes discussion of how GIS and spatial analysis were used to project how much energy might be developed in PA during the next 20 years and where that development is more or less likely to occur.
