Preliminary analyses! (1300+ observations! Now what?)

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all you amazing folks out there sharing your observations! More than 1300 observations have been shared by nearly 200 dedicated community scientists! Awesome.

The collective movement of this community is an incredible demonstration of the power of working together to accelerate research and foster shared understanding. Please pat yourself on the back :)

The observations shared in this project are invaluable for research and will be useful for identifying the factors affecting redcedar! We're thrilled to share we've been taking a deeper look into the data and are excited to see this effort translate into meaningful information for conserving redcedar.

The below (preliminary) data visualization shows how healthy and unhealthy trees group differently when plotted against a combination of environmental factors (soil, climate and topography). The next steps are to identify what factors are most important for whether trees are classified as healthy or unhealthy.

Learn more by attending one of our monthly research updates (https://foresthealth.org/research-updates/). Anyone is welcome!

Fine work, Joey! Do you know which features create the healthy-tree enrichment on the left branch, above?

I know that detail like that can be obscured by dimension reduction algorithms.

With the upcoming cedar research at Seward Park, it would be a big help - if it is at all possible - for me to explore the tabular data (maybe 1300 trees x 18 features?). We might be collecting data on 200 new trees to add to this project.
