The NASA/UL Lafayette Regional Application Center is coordinating with the U.S.Geological Survey of the Department of the Interior, the National Wetland Research Center, and the Louisiana Army National Guard Geospatial Center in presenting a series of topical workshops pertaining to mapping, vegetation, photo-interpretation, remote sensing and Geographical Information Systems. The workshops are part of an effort to exchange information and provide access to spatial technologies developed at the center for natural resource survey. The workshops are available to the general public, educators, state and federal agencies. Workshop participation by the international community is also greatly encouraged. Workshop participants are eligible to receive continuing education units (CEU's) for a fee of $10 in addition to the standard registration expense.
Most of the workshops are 3 days long, creating compact presentation of materials. No previous experience in any of the topical workshops is assumed, except for advanced workshops. Appropriate handouts, photos, maps, and other forms of distributed materials are provided to the workshop participants. Some workshops will have scheduled field exercises. Hands-on exercises are utilized to involve workshop participation. Specialized workshop topics and transient workshops can be arranged based upon consultation and number of workshop participants. Scheduled workshops are subject to change. Please contact the workshop coordinator at the listed phone number for workshop information.
