The theme of this year Water Policy Summit is "Community Resiliency: Summit to Sea." Many experts from science, public policy, and public service participated in this conference. Some of my students in Computational Hydrology (CE:591-320) participated in student poster presentation. Great jobs!
National Water Center hosted the Science and Technology Showcase. Multiple water-related research federal agencies participate in this showcase (NOAA/NWS, USGS, US Army Corp of Engineers, and NOAA/ESRL). It was a great place to share water-related research experience and discuss potential collaboration across the agencies and UA.
Shawn is a GIS specialist from the National Water Center (NWC). NWC is located in the UA Main Campus. Shawn demonstrated how to start QGIS, how to create maps and watershed-related files from QGIS. Mark Glaudemans (Hydrologist from NWC) was also in the class and shared his view with students about future potentials in using QGIS.
QGIS is a professional GIS application that is built on top of and proud to be itself Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). We can find more information from the following link:
