I-GUIDE Featured in Directions Magazine
Directions Magazine – an online publication for the geospatial community – recently published an article on I-GUIDE. In it, we learn how connecting many different disciplines - in expertise, in data sharing and integrated cyberinfrastructure, and in education - is necessary to harness geospatial data’s power to make critical discoveries around the most complicated problems of resilience and sustainability facing our society today.

Broader Applicability of the Metacoupling Framework than Tobler's First Law of Geography for Global Sustainability: a Systematic Review
Nicholas Manning, Yingjie Li, and Jianguo Liu
Geography and Sustainability, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.geosus.2022.11.003
I-GUIDE researchers sorted through 290 research articles across seven fields of sustainability to test if Tobler's First Law of Geography always holds true: "everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things."
Local, regional, and global adaptations to a compound pandemic-weather stress event
Iman Haqiqi, Danielle S Grogan, Marziyeh Bahalou Horeh, Jing Liu, Uris L C Baldos, Richard Lammers and Thomas W Hertel
Environmental Research Letters, February 2023. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/acbbe3.
Here I-GUIDE researchers use a coupled biophysical and economic model to consider the wide-ranging implications of a distressing question: what if COVID-19 had co-occurred with a 2015-like drought year?
Labor markets: a critical link between global-local shocks and their impact on agriculture
Srabashi Ray, Iman Haqiqi, Alexandra E Hill, J Edward Taylor and Thomas W Hertel
Environmental Research Letters, March 2023. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/acb1c9.
How well can we model the effects of global market developments and local sustainability policies in the field of agriculture, particularly when shocks occur? Using an integrated assessment model such as SIMPLE-G makes it possible.
