Earth as Art exhibit, developed by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL Lafayette) Regional Application Center (RAC), will be on display at the Brookings Public Library June 15, 2019 - July 22, 2019. The Earth as Art gallery features remarkable images of the surface of the Earth that have been captured by remote sensing devices aboard Landsat and other satellites operated by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The exhibit presented by UL Lafayette Regional Application Center and the LouisianaView program has displayed across the country, providing attendees imagery created by innovative, educational science technology.
AmericaView (https://americaview.org) is a nationwide partnership of remote sensing scientists who support the use of Landsat and other public domain remotely sensed data through applied remote sensing research, K-12 and higher STEM education, workforce development, and technology transfer. Funded primarily by a grant from the U.S. Geological Survey, the AmericaView consortium is comprised of university-led, state-based consortia working together to sustain a network of state and local remote sensing scientists, educators, analysts, and technicians. South Dakota View has invited Louisiana View to present Earth as Art at the Brookings Public Library and will be on exhibit for the next month.
In addition to the exhibit, Brent Yantis from the University of Louisiana Lafayette Regional Application Center will be a guest speaker on Tuesday, June 18th, from 7pm-8:30pm.
