The GIS & Mapping Community of Practice is an informal meetup that offers participants an opportunity to get to know other people using mapping tools and techniques across campus, regardless of discipline. Whether you're just getting started exploring GIS & Mapping or a seasoned pro (or anywhere in between!), all are welcome to participate in the GIS & Mapping Community of Practice. Bring your questions and get excited to meet fellow mappers!
Planet is a public benefit corporation based in San Francisco that delivers near-daily satellite imagery to its clients. Planet's mission is to image the Earth's land mass every day and make global change visible, accessible, and actionable. Imagery from Planet's main constellations are at 50cm (SkySat) and 3.7m (PlanetScope) spatial resolution, with upcoming missions that will produce imagery at 30cm (Pelican) and with over 400 bands (Hyperspectral Tanager mission at 30m). Learn how this imagery can be useful to your research and projects!
Join Chippie Kislik, former ESPM PhD Student and current Planeteer, in learning how to search for, obtain, and analyze Planet imagery in ArcGIS Pro. In this workshop, we will find imagery in both Planet Explorer and through the Planet Add-in for ArcGIS Pro, add imagery into ArcGIS Pro, assess water and vegetation health using Planet data, create and export a map, and design a Planet Story time series slideshow.
GIS & Mapping Community of Practice meetups are announced in several forums:
