ASPRS/CaGIS/GLIS First Webinar

Date & Time: Feb 1, 2013 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

The American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) GIS Division in partnership with the Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CaGIS) and the Geographic and Land Information Society (GLIS) would like to invite our members to attend our first webinar in a series for 2013.

Title:  A Geospatial Integrated Approach for the Development of a Watershed Model. (Case study by the Southwest Florida Watershed Management District).

Abstract: This webinar will focus on the GIS and Remotely Sensed data that the SWFWMD uses when constructing a watershed model.  The District relies on aerial imagery, LiDAR topography, NexRAD RADAR rainfall, and a variety of GIS constructed and interpreted data.  GIS data includes: Land Use/ Land Cover as interpreted from aerial imagery; NRCS Soil types; the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI); and the USGS National Hydrography Dataset (NHD).  The District uses these and other data sources along with a highly customized Esri-ArcHydro Data Model and GIS tools to assess surface water flows.

About the Speaker:
Dr. Al Karlin received his Ph.D. from Miami University in 1978 and served as a Professor of Biology at the University of Arkansas – Little Rock.  Upon leaving the university in 2000, Al worked with private consulting firms until 2007 when he joined the Southwest Florida Water Management District as a Senior GIS Scientist.  Currently, he works with the Watershed Management Program and oversees LiDAR and aerial imagery acquisition by the District.

Date & Time: Feb 1, 2013 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
