Mapping Eastern Oregon Juniper Encroachment
The Institute for Natural Resources-Portland (INR-Portland), located on PSU campus, is conducting an environmental monitoring project to study the juniper encroachment in Eastern Oregon. Historical aerial photographs from the 50’s-80s’s need to be geo-referenced and mosiacked for a remote area in eastern Oregon for several watersheds for validation of a historical juniper density and distribution map being created with Landsat TM imagery. The aerial photographs will also be used as training data for historic Landsat images. Estimated a total of 100 hours of work, with a chance of additional project work in the future. The ideal candidate is able to work independently, pay attention to detail, familiar with eastern Oregon environmental issues and has experience geo-referencing satellite imagery or aerial photography. Familiarity with ERDAS Imagine is necessary. Pay $15/hr. Flexible work schedule is fine, 10-25 hrs/week.
