Using Web-based Tools for GIS-Friendly Satellite Imagery
Authors: Lindsey Harriman
A common challenge of GIS users today is being able to efficiently make satellite imagery GIS ready for geospatial analysis. However, many free, web-based tools are available to retrieve, process, and download satellite imagery, such as MODIS and ASTER, all in one step. This presentation will discuss various tools available from NASA and USGS that enable GIS users of all ability levels to tackle this challenge and reduce some of the steps it takes to solve GIS problems with satellite imagery.
