Lake Tahoe Remote Sensing Workshop
Remote Sensing and Cloud Computing to Support Lake Tahoe Environmental Monitoring
Stakeholder Workshop Series
August 1, 2018
Tahoe Regional Planning Agency
DRI will be holding the first of two workshops on remote sensing data access and application for Lake Tahoe resource management issues. The workshops are intended to support development of a customized application of Climate Engine (ClimateEngine.org) for the Lake Tahoe Basin. The web-based cloud-computing tool will enable resource management agencies to quickly and easily map, monitor and assess a variety of resource conditions using historical and near real-time satellite imagery and climate data.
What to Expect: This first workshop will feature an introduction to Climate Engine with focus on application to real world environmental issues. Attendees will receive hands on training and leave the workshop ready to download and process remote sensing data for their specific project needs. Attendees will be solicited for input regarding Tahoe specific resource management needs that will guide customization of the Lake Tahoe specific tool. The tool will be unveiled at the second workshop, and attendees will be trained and asked to provide feedback on tool enhancements.
Who should Attend: Federal, state, and local agency resource managers and professionals interested in learning about the application of new visualization and computation and analysis technologies to resource management. A background in GIS and remote sensing is helpful, but not required.
When: Workshop #1: August 1, 2018
