ArcMap Data Almost Ready

Greetings from Montana.

This is my data preparation using Model Builder in ArcMap

This is my data preparation using Model Builder in ArcMap

TEAM SPAW has been pretty busy over the last week!  I have been learning a lot about plant identification at our various study sites on the Flathead Reservation.  The rest of the team has been working on soil and plant sampling, and I have been helping as much as I can.  Meanwhile, I almost have all my GIS data prepped and am getting ready to start analyzing trends and hopefully come up with a good habitat suitability model for blue camas.  I’ve included a picture of my model builder so far, it’s getting quite large and might have to start a second to ensure it operates smoothly.  I have run into a few problems, and I’m wondering if my polygons I made of existing camas stands are big enough.  I may have to start thinking of a different approach, but I have some help so hopefully we can come up with a solution by the end of the week.  Other than that, we also had bear training with Germain White from the tribe and also Zotero training.  I most likely spend most of this week fine tuning my research paper and working on my habitat suitability model.  Fun will include 4th of July with family and friends and Pow wow down in Arlee, MT.  Hope everyone is doing well!
