FORA.tv Speaker - Maggi Kelly
Maggi Kelly is a geographer, broadly trained in geospatial technologies and natural-human system interactions. Kelly is interested in functional mapping of environment, participatory research, and integrated geospatial technology.
Her approach to research and outreach is applied and collaborative, and the systems she focuses on vary in type and scale, which include Sierran forests, San Francisco Bay wetlands, the California delta, and urban neighborhoods. All of them are managed landscapes with a complex spatial structure that can be mapped using geospatial tools, and each has an interested group of stakeholders for whom the research results have importance.
Kelly is very conscious of the speed at which our geospatial field is evolving, and to that end seeks to build a community interested in applied geospatial research and outreach locally at UC Berkeley and across the state. Kelly is the faculty director of the Geospatial Innovation Facility, which is dedicated to bringing cutting-edge mapping technology to students, staff, faculty and others.
