Sandisfield without the Trees
October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$5.00
What would Sandisfield look like if all the trees were magically removed? What did it look like when it was more farms than forest? See for yourself and learn about LIDAR (light detection and ranging) with Professor Will Ouimet of U Conn.
The image shown here is a very reduced view — you’ll see and hear much more in Professor Ouimet’s talk.
Followed by cider, donuts, Riiska Brook Orchard apples and general awe.
About LIDAR: Lidar systems allow scientists and mapping professionals to examine both natural and manmade environments with accuracy, precision, and flexibility. NOAA scientists are using lidar to produce more accurate shoreline maps, make digital elevation models for use in geographic information systems, to assist in emergency response operations, and in many other applications.
