Current GRANIT Projects

A Landscape Scale Assessment of NERRS Marsh Resilience
DescriptionGRANIT is part of a team working to develop GIS-based tools for assessing the long-term resilience of tidal marshes within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS). NERRS is developing tools to assess marsh resilience to sea-level rise and other environmental changes using monitoring protocols employed at selected study sites. It is important for researchers to understand how representative the selected monitoring sites are in the context of each Research Reserve and its broader ...   More

Data Lifecycle Framework & Global Geospatial Identification System
DescriptionGRANIT staff at the University of New Hampshire are working with principals from Axiomatic, Inc. (Portsmouth, NH) to conduct a data lifecycle analysis for the NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). Information on current practices as they relate to geospatial data will be collected and analyzed, and will be used to develop recommendations and guidelines for managing NHDES spatial data assets in the future.  More

Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM) Development Project for Communities within the Piscataqua-Salmon Falls Watershed, NH
DescriptionIn its role as a Cooperating Technical Partner (CTP), NH GRANIT is under agreement with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to develop new and/or updated flood hazard data for upland communities in the Piscataqua-Salmon Falls Watershed of New Hampshire. The footprint for the project includes all or part of the following 26 communities: Rockingham County - Brentwood, Candia, Chester, Danville, Deerfield, Derry, East Kingston, Epping, Fremont, Hampstead, Kensington, Kingston, Northwood, ...   More

NH GRANIT LiDAR Data Management
DescriptionNH GRANIT will be working with NH DES to archive and make available to the public a statewide LiDAR collection. In addition, derivative data sets will be generated, most notably, 2-foot contour intervals by HUC-10 watershed unit. We also anticipate generating both first return and difference (difference between first and last return) elevation models.  More

NH Stone Wall Mapping Project
DescriptionWorking with the NH Geological Survey at the NH Department of Environmental Services as well as a group of committed citizen volunteers, GRANIT is fusing new technology with New Hampshire history to create a unique cultural heritage preservation asset and learning experience. The project team is creating a web-based mapping interface based on LIDAR visualizations of the NH landscape that will enable interested individuals to identify and map stone walls in the state.  More

Pollution Tracking and Accounting Pilot Project (PTAPP) - Great Bay
DescriptionWorking the NH Coastal Program, the UNH Stormwater Center, the UNH Research Computing Center, communities in the Great Bay region, regional planning agencies, and other partners, GRANIT will be developing an online PTAPP tracking database and web interface. This effort represents Phase II of a long-term project that seeks to work with NH's communities in developing and standardizing reporting and accounting tools that are needed for compliance with EPA non-point source regulatory requirements.  More

Space Grant - 2017
DescriptionObject-based image analysis (OBIA) methods are being used to update the 23-class New Hampshire Land Cover Assessment for three towns in central New Hampshire: Belmont, Laconia, and Tilton. GRANIT is exploring the use of generalized LiDAR-derived land cover (generated from the 2016 NH Space Grant project) as a classification enhancement to the Land Cover product. Past experience indicates that problems arise in defining medium and low density urban features from 30-meter data. As a result, the clean-up ...   More
