"Order up!!!"

LOL, talk about fast service! Thank you for that. It appears that I live and research in the largest BC cluster, which I thought was the case. It's interesting to see that there appear to be many more reports just south of me, in Wa., especially in the Mt. Baker/Mt. St. Helens areas. I wonder if the huge difference in human population is reflected in this, as there is roughly 10 times as many people in the US as in Canada, hence only 1/10 as many eyes to see sasquatch and make reports?

I've had a multitude of different heat and cluster maps both from paid for software out of my own pocket and free software, coming out of my ears for years and have regularly shared them on here and on social media, here's just a few.

 

Fill your boots !

 

We have all the tools to take this subject forward where data is concerned, i just don't feel that there is any guidance or sustained direction as to what areas we need to focus on and make a real impact.

AWESOME!

 

And thank you in advance!

Not a problem. I want to help determine their behaviors too.

It would be nice to have a online GIS solution so users could do basic searches and analysis on the SSR database. If you have any ideas or software, please share. :)

Hi, I don't post much here, but I agree. I was searching the web for ideas, ideally open source based. ESRI (ArcGIS) is super easy, but costly, and if you wanted to perform advanced filtering or on-the-fly analysis, it will cost you server credits (aka $$).

 

For context, I'm a GIS analyst with some programming experience. I am (slowly) in the process of learning full stack development. I'd love to help build something, but I only know a little about a lot right now. However I am teaching myself. There are some great/cheap classes on Udemy for wed mapping development. Most focus on leaflet as the front-end and postGIS as the backend. I have purchased several courses. I am happy to share these resources if others are interested in learning and trying to develop an interactive web mapping platform. Just let me know...!

 

From my limited judgement these ideas are worth exploring.

 

Best example I found for filtering spatiotemporal data, using R, Leaflet and Crosstalk:

Filtering Data in Leaflet:

Time slider w/ Leaflet and HTML5:

R and Shiny:

Free Open-source Class for Leaflet and R:

::Resources to spawn ideas::

Geospatial:

GIS:

Udemy Courses that would be useful:

Introduction to web programming for GIS Applications

Display and Analyze Data on the Web w/ Leaflet and turf.js

Maps with R and Leaflet

QGIS and PostGIS: Getting Started with Spatial Databases

Introduction to Spatial Databases with PostGIS and QGIS

Server-side web GIS Applications w/ Leaflet and PostGIS

Right now, They just want a heatmap generator for the database. But we can talk about different ideas just in case. :)

Cool. I am happy to help with that to the extent I can. I know pyhon and spatial data, but don't have a lot of webDev experience. I am talking with gigantor to see how I can contribute. Cheers!

Very cool, thanks for coming forward..;)

Sorry guys and gals. I thought I could work on a heatmap option for the database, but health reasons have made it difficult to find the time to work on the project. I will try to work on it in the future if nobody takes it on for now.

Good day folks,

This is only my second post. I've been spending a bit of time browsing the forum pages looking at past discussions and graphics. I'm interested in seeing some refreshed SSR map data for New York State. Not sure if this is the right place to ask. I'd be interested in a map view of total sightings or reports in the dbase, and a graphic of sightings by year as a starting point. I dabble a little in GIS, using ArcMap at work and recently trying out QGIS at home. I started making modifications to the data in the BFRO dataset some time back, prior to finding and joining this group. I'm interested in correlating report data with other data, similar to some of the excellent examples I saw posted in the SSR analysis pages  several years back. Not sure if I could offer analytics assistance or not (still have a lot of reading to do in the forum), but I would love to see refreshed SSR dbase mapping for NYS, and in the aggregate if such maps are not already posted elsewhere in the forum. Thanks

Here is New York and some from surrounding states.

The colors represent the SSR score of each report.

Thanks for the response and map Redbone. I'm located south of the sightings cluster in the Adirondack State Park bordering Vermont. As you probably know, the Adirondacks are the largest state park in the United States, over 6 million acres. Interesting that a significant cluster of sightings appear on the central eastern edge of the park, and traverse the border into the Green Mountains of Vermont, and from that cluster point, if one connected the dots, there looks like a path up and down the east park border, and from that point a western trail into the central portion of the park. Not much in the way of historical events in the southwest, central west or northwest portion of the park. If one were to draw an almost north-south line thru the center of the park, nearly all of the events are located in about 3 million acres of the park, mostly in the eastern side of the park...doesn't necessarily mean there are more potential animals in this half of the park, but more sightings.  Interstate 87 runs along that section of the park, and it's heavily trafficked, whereas the interior of the park has more secondary and seasonal roads. That's just one observation as to why there may be more sightings on one side of this enormous park versus the other side. Also, the residential population in many of the counties that make up the park, varies quite a lot.  Hamilton County, for example, is the size of the State of Delaware, but only has about 4,500 residents in the entire county, or less than 3 persons per square mile, and they mostly live in the lower section of the county. Hamilton is one of the counties that makes up part of the larger non-event/sighting portion of the central western side of the park...so, again, lack of events/sightings in that portion of the park may have more to do with lack of eyes and ears in the area, as opposed to many more eyes and ears in other portions of the state park. Thanks.
