Biodiversity in National Parks

Using information from the public data science site Kaggle, Biodiversity in National Parks offers unique ways to explore the species diversity found within the U.S. National Parks. A short video introduces users to the tool, including navigating the options on the left-hand panel. After watching this video, users can maneuver this "navigation panel" to explore various project features. The interactive Parks Map lets visitors zoom in on a region of interest and toggle over pinpoints to learn about parks in that region. The Species Table contains more than 100,000 plant and animal species records (filterable by order, family, and other categories). Similarly, under the Species Tree tab readers can select a park and a category to view "a collapsible hierarchical tree of the species." The Species Charts tab focuses on species quantity, while the Species Choropleth Map arranges data geographically. This project was launched in 2019 with updates made in 2020. Readers will find the code used to create this project on GitHuband RCloud (linked in the Welcome section).
