Abstract

This poster examines the possibility of relocating California’s agriculture to different areas of the country to help alleviate the ongoing drought conditions experienced by the state. Using geospatial technology, alternate sites were examined for this purpose. Variables such as land use, drought conditions and latitudinal range were considered when trying to determine possible relocation areas. After examining the results, some possible crop relocation areas include middle to lower Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio as well as upper Arkansas.
