Displaying Landsat Imagery Using Band Combinations Using ArcGIS Desktop

12:00 pm EDT

Many educators are interested in offering introduction to remote sensing courses, but may not have access to specialized remote sensing software packages.  These software packages are often expensive, and can be complicated to users who lack training and experience. 

ArcGIS Desktop software is often available to many educational institutions, and may be an appropriate software option for many educators to provide introduction to remote sensing.

This Webinar is the second in a series designed to support the educational community. Through this Webinar, you will lean how to: 

  • create a composite image
  • display multi-band satellite image
  • subset landsat imagery

    Webinar: Animal Welfare Standards and Commercial Aquaculture Operations

    12:00 pm EDT

    Environmental and ethical considerations are playing an increasing role in the food purchasing decisions of consumers and retailers. The scrutiny of producers’ animal welfare practices is intensifying and animal welfare standards, voluntary and mandatory, are proliferating. The focus has traditionally been on terrestrial livestock operations, but concerns are also being raised about the welfare of farmed fish both on land and in the marine environment. This webinar will provide an overview of existing and emerging animal welfare standards for farmed fish. For additional program details, visit the National Agricultural Law Center website here.

    This webinar is provided by the Agricultural & Food Law Consortium, a 4-university partnership led by the National Agricultural Law Center designed to enhance and expand the development and delivery of authoritative, timely, and objective agricultural and food law research and information.   The Consortium serves as the Leadership Team for the Ag & Food Law CoP.

    Presenter: Stephanie Showalter Otts, Director, National Sea Grant Law Center
