An analysis was conducted to determine the geographical scope of three threats to Southern Resident Killer Whales: Chinook salmon commercial catches, tanker traffic and contaminated properties. A series of GIS analysist functions, such as unifying projections, select-by-attribute, clip, SQL queries, buffer, and polygon intersects were applied to the datasets. The purpose of our project is to highlight the significant disruptions found while encouraging conservation strategies.
This memo delves into an environmental impact assessment of the proposed ski development on Garibaldi mountain near Squamish British Columbia.

This project investigated the housing costs in Metro Vancouver using census data collected from both 2011 and 2016. Census spatial data was downloaded and tabular data was joined to each layer using ArcMap. The project explored four different classification methods as well as data suppression, uncertainty of using different variables and the ethical implications of analysis.
In this week’s lab, I have been tasked with analyzing Vancouver’s storm surge risk.
