Earth Observation Day Celebration
The ISU GIS Facility will host the annual Earth Observation Day celebration in 248 Durham. A mapping event focused on humanitarian mapping projects in areas hit by recent natural disasters will take place from 11 a.m. to noon. Bring your lunch and stay from noon to 12:30 for a guest lecture by Daryl Herzmann about the Iowa Environmental Mesonet, a website that collects and displays environmental data for Iowa from various sources including Iowa Flood Center, Iowa Department of Transportation, National Weather Service, and Iowa State University Department of Agronomy.
The event is free, but you’re asked to fill out the RSVP form so they can plan for computer space and chairs.
