Students and teachers can take part in the SATELLITES blog. Kevin Czajkowski “Dr. C” has created a blog site at satellitesk12.org. There are a number of resources for students interested in Remote Sensing and GIS. Check back often for Dr. C’s regular updates.
The AmericaView Remote Sensing Consortium Educational Committee has an excellent website with lots of educational resources for remote sensing. To check it out, go to: www.earthobservationday.com
DigitalGlobe has collected over 120,000 km2 of high-resolution color and black and white imagery of Haiti since activating the Crisis Event Service on Wednesday, January 13. And yesterday, we re-imaged virtually the entire country, adding another 75,000 km2 of new imagery. View the Haiti coverage map to see how the DigitalGlobe Constellation has achieved this remarkable coverage.
Interactive, browser-based image viewer
In order to view and compare multiple imagery collects more easily, we have created an interactive imagery browser based on our Crisis Event Service, and Open Layers. View the Haiti Imagery Browser …
K-12 students participated in a virtual, science conference for OhioView’s SATELLITES remote sensing conference. Students, whose teachers have participated in SATELLITES, took observations and developed inquiry-based research projects to explore their local landscapes in order to understand the way in which the polar regions affect the Earth. The theme for the SATELLITES projects was the International Polar Year. Students prepared research projects and then video taped them. They posted their videos on http://teachertube.com in April 2009.
