Spring Remote Sensing Workshop under Construction
By Chris Cialek, Land Management Information Center
Progress is being made on plans to hold a day-long workshop in the Twin Cities metro area focused on remote sensing. The intent of the workshop is to answer questions for GIS specialists – especially those who represent local government – on what remote sensing is, how it can work with GIS, what resources are available to local governments and what details are important to know about in working with the data or contracting to have it collected.
A date for this event has not yet been selected; the goal is to hold the workshop in the latter half of May or early June. Please check the LMIC website (www.lmic.state.mn.us) for details as they become public.
The workshop’s principal sponsor is the Institute for the Advancement of Geospatial Technologies (www.iagt.org). LMIC is organizing the event with support from the MN GIS/LIS Consortium, University of Minnesota, Natural Resources Research Institute, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Ramsey County, 1000 Friends of Minnesota and Minnesota Departments of Transportation, Natural Resources and Pollution Control Agency.
