GeoTREE provides ArcSLAMM workshops

Posted Oct. 20, 2016, 6:57 a.m.

The UNI GeoTREE Center (John DeGroote and Research Assistants Garrett Jepsen and Aaron Padilla) and collaborator Rebecca Kauten provided three workshops in Ankeny, Dubuque, and Coralville. Approximately 40 attendees from local government (e.g. cities of Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Coralville) watershed management and education groups (e.g. Easter Lake Watershed and Dry Run Creek Watershed Coordinators), and private engineering companies (e.g. Shive-Hattery, RDG Planning & Design). The workshops highlighted work the GeoTREE Center is doing under an Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship grant to highlight custom ArcGIS tools the GeoTREE Center has developed for working with an urban stormwater modeling software. The workshops included example applications in several watersheds. The GIS tools as well as all modeling results for watersheds in Iowa will be made publicly available.
