I spent the day in the lab processing data. After many hours spent struggling to georeference the historical maps in Erdas, I finally came up with a system that worked. I was able to georeference 7 maps/images to the recent World View data. When I go back to the lab again, I can create orthophotos of the remotely sensed data and georeference those images too.
Matty took the lab groups on one last tour of the part of the NTBG that we haven’t seen yet. It was full of beautiful water features and fountains that are all unique in their own ways. My favorite feature was the oscillating fountain that fluctuated at 60 beats per minute. Rumor has it that if you meditate there long enough, your heart rate will slow. I should have brought my flute and I could have played some Mozart with this natural metronome!
After another great taco and burrito dinner, everyone headed back to the NTBG Research Center to give presentations on their projects. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of their projects and I can already see results for many of them! I think our final posters will definitely show how hard we’ve worked over the past few weeks.
