Science-informed, Data-driven Transdisciplinary Collaborations using Concept Maps
posterposted on 10.07.2020 by Brian Wee
Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
The poster describes how concept maps can be used to capture the rich tapestry of science, technology, and policy dimensions that must be appropriately orchestrated for understanding and managing large-scale socio-environmental challenges. We envision a future repository of concept maps to be repurposable for self-paced education, transdisciplinary engagement, and machine-assisted “context-aware” knowledge discovery for decision support. We envision using these “data to decisions” concept maps as the foundations of a transdisciplinary knowledge base, upon which technologies will be developed to help planners re-use and adapt components of risk management plans developed for other contexts. This presentation was given at the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held online in July 2020.
