habitat change in the aftermath of the Morgan Fire on Mount Diablo, which burned 3,100 acres in September 2013. ! We're collaborating with Mount Diablo State Park and the Wildlife Society, Western Section.
• Aftermath of the Yosemite Rim Fire (second largest in CA history) • Aftermath of South Bay proscribed fires • We expect many similar inquiries in the future ! Other applications we envision • Public events like Maker Faire (where we will have Change Bracket signs) • Construction and pollution sites • Gardens, greenhouses, and farms
relevant html is in the public Github repo here: ! https://github.com/nerdsfornature/nerdsfornature.github.com/tree/master/ monitor-change ! ! 2. The script that Ken-ichi has been using to write a nightly file of recent tag usage: ! https://gist.github.com/kueda/937d12c280dc5ae8d1af
script to read and write data to a Google Spreadsheet, with column to allow manual exclusion of bogus (hi mom!) images from the project. ! • Make a totally free, bugless, self-sustaining web app on Google App Engine that lets people enter a set of tags and then it will regularly archive image URLs to a spreadsheet, along with a page equivalent to our existing site to show a slideshow. We doubt such an app would ever be popular enough to surpass Google's free quota, and if it does, business plan!
an automated way to generate time-lapse movies using photostitching software like Hugin. ! • Make a timelapse programmatically with Python Imaging Library (PIL or Pillow) or whatever image processing lib you like. ! • Make a timelapse programmatically as above and make it automatically choose control points, adjust for exposure, and account for elapsed time variations. ! • Use openCV to find control points?
make this an easily replicable sort of campaign by filling out forms or something to generate sign images and twitter scripts and set up a web server and blog/slideshow/movie and so on. ! Currently the sign image is an Adobe Illustrator file/template.
