Shoreline Mapping Data and Products
April 11, 2019, 2:00 - 3:00 pm, Eastern Time
Presenter: Tim Blackford, NGS
The NGS Coastal Mapping Program produces the national shoreline and other critical data used to update the NOAA nautical charts. The data is also used by coastal resource managers and others for GIS analysis, coastal modeling, and as the baseline for defining U.S. territorial limits. This webinar will provide an overview of how the NGS Remote Sensing Division collects, processes, and delivers shoreline mapping data and products.
Technical Content Rating: Intermediate - Some prior knowledge of the topic is helpful.

As a reminder, the NGS Webinar Series hosts presentations on various topics related to NGS programs, projects, products and services to educate constituents about NGS activities.

Join us for a Bioregional Beer at The Oregon Public House
Apr 06, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM
We'll discuss the online atlas Learning from Cascadia, as well as the futures of bioregionalism in the Anthropocene and a new interactive mapping tool that we will be launching. All are welcome, the first 15 folks to show up will get a free beer.
Learning from Cascadia, at cascadia.ecotopia.today, is a set of multimedia maps, bound together on a single web-based platform to create an atlas of the Columbia River Basin and the bioregion known as Cascadia. Focusing on the political ecology connected to this river system, Learning from Cascadia is as much a geography of persons, histories, and collective experiences, as it is a map of locations and sites.
