The Central Coast Joint
Data Committee holds workshops approximately every Quarter. Members
and the public are invited to attend to learn about new techniques
in spatial data handling, current projects in the Central Coast
region, and other topics of interest to the group.
As new workshops
are planned, look for the agenda to appear here. Some workshops
will have flyers available in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) file format.
If you are interested in participating in a particular workshop or workshop topic, please submit your ideas and itemize the topics you would like to learn about.
The workshop was offered by the Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments
on May 25, 2011.

Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR)
The Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR see http://spatial.cisr.ucsc.edu) will be offering its next in a series of professional training workshops on Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30. Remote sensing plays a large role in geospatial analysis and the enhancement of geographic information systems. This course provides students with the knowledge and practical experience necessary to develop a thorough understanding of the basic principles, techniques and applications of remote sensing. Students will learn about digital image acquisition, processing, display and analysis with a focus on environmental monitoring and natural resource management. Emphasis is placed on the use of digital satellite image data. Topics include basic air photo interpretation, the electromagnetic spectrum, spectral response curves, sensor and image characteristics, image display, image transformations, image classification and data acquisition. Participants should have introductory knowledge of Geographic Information Systems before attending this course. Class format: approximately 50% lecture, 50% lab exercises.
Instructor: Cindy Schmidt - Research Scientist (NASA Ames Research Center); Ph.D. candidate (Department of Environmental Studies, UCSC)
