Details

Participants will learn about using trees for Green Infrastructure Planning and how to create land cover maps using satellite imagery – turning images into useful data! Participants will learn how to translate data into models for stormwater uptake, to set goals and plans for the urban forest - and much more!

Practitioners and planners who are interested in remote sensing and want to use a new free tool to map land cover should attend. Participants will learn to use the new Land Image Analyst (LIA) tool to map land cover to use for watershed planning, urban tree canopy maps, stormwater management, and much more. LIA was developed by GDA Corp for the USDA Forest Service Chesapeake Bay Program as a land cover recognition tool to aid communities in developing land cover analysis and change detection. It has many applications, such as mapping tree canopy, identifying impervious surfaces, or identifying stream buffers.

Sponsored by Penn State Extension

There will be a hands-on session at the end of the workshop. Attendees should bring their own laptops and download the software/sample data if they wish to gain practical experience. All participants are requested to register from the LIA download site regardless of their participation in the hands on session.  More information at link above.
