tinypic

When: March 6, 2019
@ 10:00 – 12:00 pm
Location: 360 Shields Library
(DSI Classroom)
Cost: Totally FREE!
Prerequisite:
Bring a laptop. Sign up for a Google Earth Engine Account
Presenters: Yuhan Huang, Erica Scaduto, Bin Chen

 

 

About:  Wildfire has been among the most influential processes in California, and the recent raged wildfires have greatly burdened fire-fighting expenditure and threatened entire communities. This workshop will get you know some knowledge about changing fire regimes, environmental controls on fire behaviors, fire progression, and burn severity in California. In the meantime, we will teach how to perform fire mapping using Google Earth Engine. Come check out this hot topic and learn with us!  Continue reading #maptimeDavis – Fire Mapping with Google Earth Engine

About: #maptimeDavis OpenStreetMap (OSM) Humanitarian Mapathon will support disaster planning and relief by creating data needed for humanitarian efforts such as identifying roads and communities in satellite imagery.  We’ll start with an introduction to OpenStreetMap editing for all levels of experience. Using the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Task Editor, then we’ll pick a few tasks to work on as a group.

In previous Mapathons, we contributed data to Crowd2Map to provide road and building data to help rescue workers find women in need of intervention before their communities commit Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).  Anyone can contribute and you can make a difference! Interested? Please stop by at anytime with your laptop!

Bonus: We have Stickers!
