Penn State Extension: Landscape & Green Infrastructure Analysis & Planning Workshop Dec. 12 In Lancaster

Penn State Extension will host a Landscape and Green Infrastructure Analysis and Planning Workshop on December 12 in Lancaster where participants will learn about using trees for Green Infrastructure Planning and how to create land cover maps using satellite imagery – turning images into useful data
Participants will learn how to translate data into models for stormwater uptake, to set goals and plans for the urban forest - and much more!
Practitioners and planners who are interested in remote sensing and want to use a new free tool to map land cover should attend. Participants will learn to use the new Land Image Analyst (LIA) tool to map land cover to use for watershed planning, urban tree canopy maps, stormwater management, and much more. 
LIA was developed by GDA Corp for the USDA Forest Service Chesapeake Bay Program as a land cover recognition tool to aid communities in developing land cover analysis and change detection. 
It has many applications, such as mapping tree canopy, identifying impervious surfaces, or identifying stream buffers.
The program will be held at the Lancaster Farm and Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Road in Lancaster from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.
