The MetEd (Meteorology Education and Training) Website was established to provide education and training resources to benefit the operational forecaster community, university atmospheric scientists and students, and anyone interested in learning more deeply about meteorology and weather forecasting topics. The site houses online learning materials, as well as information on other training and education activities, such as classroom courses and teletraining, and links to other related resources.
Friday, August 17th, 1:00-3:30pm IGIC SEMINAR Indiana State Library 140 N. Senate Ave, History Reference Room Indianapolis, IN 46204 IGIC Members: FREE Nonmembers: $20
Wetlands are a crucial part of Indiana's natural environment. But how can you protect them if you don't know where they are or how they work?
James Robb of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management will walk you through using the statewide 2005 color infrared photography to identify wetlands. Bob Barr and Jeremy Webber of IUPUI Center for Earth and Environmental Sciences have used high-resolution digital elevation models to demonstrate the connectivity of "isolated" wetlands and primary headwater streams. Their presentation illustrates an example of surface hydrology modeling applied to the Ritchey Woods Natural Area, Hamilton County, Indiana.
Thursday, September 13th, 1:30-2:30 IGIC WEBINAR IGIC Members: FREE Non-members: $10
All maps are created with a specific purpose in mind; that purpose can be more clearly understood by the viewer if you use the principals of thematic cartography and geographic visualization. Jeremy Webber from the IUPUI Geography Department will share his techniques for making more visually pleasing maps. Portions of this online presentation will be demonstrated in the ArcMap Environment, though the techniques can be applied in most GIS environments.
Concepts to be covered at this online event:
- Symbolizing data
- Displaying data upon aerial photography and hill shaded elevation relief
- How to use color to your benefit
- Cartographic design and output
Registrants will receive an email with login information and phone number one week prior to the event. Note: This is not a toll-free phone call, long distance charges may apply.
The theme for this year's meeting is Remote Sensing and GIS: Regional Grant Challenges. This will be a working meeting to examine multi-state issues and develop a project to be executed Spring/Summer 2008.
Participants include Academia, Outreach, K-12 Institutions, Industry and Government.
