#maptimeDavis: Simplified Volcano Hazards Maps: Lessons Learned and Future Directions

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Description: This workshop will focus on the development story of simplified volcano hazards maps for the principal volcanoes of the Cascade Range. Many valuable lessons were learned about map design for an intended audience and cartographic elements to fit audience expectations during the development process. The simplified maps have uses beyond the intended audience and will continue to meet evolving user needs in future generations of hazard mapping products to reduce risk from volcano hazards.

Learning Objectives: People will learn about the challenges of representing highly technical scientific information about volcano hazards on maps and infographics that are usable by intended audiences to reduce risk from volcano hazards in the Cascades.

Prerequisites: None

Software: None

Instructor: David Ramsey, U.S. Geological Survey and USAID, Cascades Volcano Observatory

Instructor Bio: Dave Ramsey is a Geologist with the USGS/USAID Volcano Disaster Assistance Program at the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, WA. He has spent much of his career designing map products and constructing geospatial databases of volcano hazards to prepare for future eruptions.
