Event Details

In 2010, 1.8 Zettabytes of data were generated by the “digital universe”, adding to an already bloated inventory of data and information. The growing challenge posed by this complexity to users and producers of information in searching for and finding the right sources and data comes then as no surprise. Geospatial (geographically referenced) data have the increased difficulty of being created based on several models based on geometric and topologic constructs (e.g. raster, vector, objects) with advantages and limitations not readily evident from the metadata. Kentucky and other states in the U.S. and many other countries in the world possess tremendously vast – and growing – geospatial data repositories. Added to the difficulty in defining what is “data” and what is “information”, software and methods to accomplish the task of discovery are proliferating rapidly. Through the use of readily available software, this workshop will allow the participants to experience the different avenues and workflows for discovering, exploring the nature of, downloading and ingesting data into a GIS for ulterior analysis and visualization.

Organizer

National Geospatial Technology Center (GeoTech Center)

The GeoTech Center hopes to increase the number, diversity, and quality of geospatial professionals through geospatial technology education at the community and technical college level.  Transforming the preparation and continuing education of geospatial technicians to meet the national workforce demand will be done by:  

 

  • Creating a national clearinghouse of exemplary geospatial curriculum materials and database Web services; 
  • Increasing the quantity, quality and diversity of geospatial technicians to meet U.S. workforce needs;
  • Increasing the number of educators participating in geospatial professional development;
  • Sustaining the Center long-term by seeking collaborations and sources of funding to maintain and improve services and products.
