Program: Texas Landscape Project with Jonathan Ogren and David Todd
The Texas Landscape Project is an atlas that includes both a book, The Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People(published by Texas A&M University Press) and a companion website www.texaslandscape.org.
The Landscape Project is all about visual materials based on data sets. Todd, who has a background in environmental law, wrote the text, collected the data, drew the few sketches in the book, and prepared draft maps. Ogren, who has a masters degree in geography and the environment, produced the more than 300 finished maps, charts and composite figures. The authors hope that the atlas will give readers a new window into understanding Texas’ natural and built world, and will encourage the public to protect the state’s land, water, wildlife, air quality, and energy resources.
Consider biking, carpooling, or taking Cap Metro to the meeting. Free parking is available after 6pm on San Jacinto and nearby streets.
