Introduction to Aerial and Satellite Images of Rhode Island

Free Educational Seminar and RIGIS User Group Meeting


There is a wealth of aerial and satellite images of Rhode Island that are freely available online.  Tapping into them can be challenging if you’re unsure where to look and if you’re not familiar with some basic tools and techniques to view them.


This half-day seminar will introduce you to a number of online sources of image data for Rhode Island, with a special emphasis on data available from the Rhode Island Geographic Information System (RIGIS) consortium, USGS, and NOAA.  We will also highlight a suite of new image services featuring RIGIS data that are now under development by Rhode IslandView.


YOU will guide the techniques highlighted in this seminar.  Vote for the technique you are most interested in learning about by registering for this event now:
