Applying a Wetland Monitoring Analysis to Protect Arable Land

Stone conducted a geospatial analysis to determine how the creation of protective buffer zones of varying sizes around wetlands would affect the arable land area available for three different crops in three Canadian Provinces (Manitoba, Alberta, and Sasketchewan). Stone's GDS team cleaned and cross-referenced multiple hydrography datasets to ensure the best possible wetland data coverage and quality prior to creation of buffer zones for each of the seeding setback scenarios.
