"Listening to Landscapes" Wins Science's People Choice Award for 2017 Data Stories Contest


Sam Hooper, a graduate student at Oregon State University studying under Landsat Science Team member Robert Kennedy, created a short video about his LandTrendr research. Hooper’s video, titled “Listening to Landscapes” shows how natural and manmade processes drive ecological change in the Pacific Northwest.
The data animation, based on LandTrendr-derived land cover change, illustrates the effects of political boundaries on forest cover as well as the relationship between insect infestations and forest fire behavior.
On May 4, 2017, Hooper’s video won Science’s People Choice Award in its 2017 Data Stories Contest. Congratulations Sam!
