Project Summary:

The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium funded this educational project to provide training to Native American resource managers on the Wind River Reservation (WRR) in central Wyoming. Workshops were conducted on the Reservation in December 2004 that emphasized the application of satellite imagery and other remotely sensed data to real management issues. Workshops included the fundamentals of remote sensing, and the integration of remotely sensed data into the existing GIS activities on the WRR. Workshops were taught by Sivanpillai and Driese of WyGISC and by Bill Gribb of the UW Dept. of Geography. Additionally, we provided a dedicated computer workstation and the Erdas Imagine image processing software to the WRR so that they can apply the skills learned in the workshops. We hope to continue these activities in future years.
