Landscape Exchange Network for Socio-Environmental Systems (LENS)

2021-07-01 — 2026-08-31

Addressing many of the challenges society faces, including climate change, food and water insecurity, and biodiversity loss, requires a better understanding of the interactions between people and their environment. Important interactions depend on scale (e.g., individuals, communities, government) and environmental conditions, suggesting the value in a landscape perspective.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers: symbol requests and development

2010-03-15 — 2010-06-30

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) had designed software to facilitate the development and visualization of conceptual ecological models, and therefore required a large and comprehensive database of environmentally orientated visual icons to include for their users. USACE then partnered with IAN to incorporate our extensive symbol library into their software, and to develop additional symbols of complex ecosystems or ecosystem elements.

Ecosystem Research and Coastal Management

2008-10-29 — 2009-09-30

Coastal management in the U.S. is in transition toward a stronger, ecosystem-based approach implemented at the regional scale and supported by strong scientific synthesis and prediction. The division of ecosystem components among different agencies, scientific disciplines, and political boundaries, as well as the complexities of conducting Regional Ecosystem Research (RER) make effective ecosystem management very challenging.

National Estuarine Eutrophication Assessment

2006-01-01 — 2007-06-30

To assess the eutrophic conditions for 141 U.S. estuaries based on data and information provided by scientists and experts from around the country. IAN developed an interactive website to collect data and produce automated summaries of eutrophication status as well as print ready graphics for the final report. Report production was a collaborative effort between Suzanne Bricker (NOAA NCCOS), EcoCheck (NOAA-UMCES Partnership) and IAN.
