Indiana has collected statewide digital imagery that can be used to produce information on what covers the landscape (land cover) and how these landscape elements are used (land use). This information can then be used to support stormwater, natural resources, urban planning, forestry and many others areas of land management.
This seminar will show a number of semi-automated approaches to creating impervious surface maps, canopy maps, land cover maps and land use maps, using remote sensing and GIS modeling techniques. There will also be an overview of the processes used, with examples of the final products, and their applications. The presentation will be given by Dr. Andrew Brenner, General Manager, Sanborn Ann Arbor.
This seminar will include a review and exploration of the considerable resources that are available to Indiana GIS users through the Indiana Geographic Information Council. These resources include opportunities for networking, education for both new and experienced GIS users, guidelines that can help users more effectively develop projects within their communities, and much more. The seminar will also provide an opportunity for participants to share their thoughts and ideas regarding how IGIC can best support the needs of GIS across Indiana. The presenter for this seminar will be Jill Saligoe-Simmel, PhD.
