Event Details

Remotely sensed data and information surround us, finding their way into our everyday lives. Classic examples of this are: weather forecasting based on satellite data, and the monitoring of landscape and traffic with webcams. Often, it is hard to make sense of the massive amounts of data generated by sensors in ways that would allow us to extract useful information, particularly with didactic purposes. This 2-day foundational workshop will provide the participants with the basic concepts and ideas behind the use of remotely sensed data – specifically geographic images and terrain models. The integration of remote sensing data and techniques in a geographic information system (GIS) environment will be illustrated with examples of a wide variety of data sources, geospatial data manipulation, and information extraction with several types of software. The enhancement and analysis of data, and the visualization for applications to class projects – such as 3-D animations with LiDAR data and imagery will also be explored.

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.
