Registration is now open for NOAA’s 2-day Coastal Inundation Mapping course to be offered on Feb 4-5 and Feb 6-7 at the South Puget Sound Community College.
Prerequisite: One or more years of GIS experience.
This 2-day hands-on training provides an introduction to coastal inundation and coastal inundation mapping methods using GIS. Topics include discussion about different types of coastal inundation (i.e., riverine flooding, shallow coastal flooding, sea level rise, storm surge, tsunami), selection of elevation datasets and datums, mapping fundamentals, spatial methodologies used to map flood areas in a coastal environment, and applications and limitations of various types of inundation products.
Upon completion of the class, you will be able to:
Coastal Inundation Mapping is a technical class focused specifically on data development rather than data use, and therefore requires GIS experience.
(13 AICP CM Credits/ CEP Points)

There’s still time to register for Build your own 3D map with LIDAR point clouds.
If you’ve seen a semi-autonomous car before, you’ve probably seen a LIDAR (Light detection and ranging) sensor. LIDAR enables a semi-autonomous car to detect surroundings with lasers; it can be used to create 3D elevation maps to help farmers to increase efficiency and it can be used to visualize buildings on a map in really high detail to showcase your real estate portfolio.
We’ll have some fun using a very familiar landmark in Florida as an example.
Be entertained while learning how to:
