Workshop & Program Notes

The Workshop location will be forthcoming…but the meeting presentations will be in the Kaibab Room which is about 100 yards from "The Inn" on campus…NOT in the Cline Library.

Our workshop will be Thursday afternoon and we encourage everyone to participate. It is titled "Introduction to Geographic Exploration Systems: Google Earth and WorldWind". Should be a lot of fun. Workshop and fun is not an oxymoron.

Our program will focus on the Grand Canyon and the wonderful local resources.

USGS has a unique facility (planetary mapping) in Flagstaff, along with several branches of USGS. Following brief presentations Friday afternoon on Planetary Nomenclature, Mars topographic mapping, and “RPIF”s or Regional Planetary Image Facilities, our program will include a brief onsite visit.
