Presentation of camp activities and schedule by staff. General presentation of the problem. Designation of groups. Prepare group slides and individual introduction slides.
Present group name and each members introduction slide
Students become aware of the General problem and camp schedule. Students make a presentation as a group.
Learn about watersheds and drinking water supply and quality
Present a definition of a watershed and briefly describe the Hackensack River watershed using a satellite image.
Students become familiar with utility software and managing files. Must learn to reach consensus as a group on a definition of a watershed
Students create color composit images of the watershed using bands 5, 4 and 3. Students compose image of watershed with watershed boundary and create a Power Point Slide.
How Brightness values from reflections of the earth are converted to pixels and digital numbers.
Students present three color composit images with different contrast settings and their histograms. Preset color composit image selected plus watershed boundary
Students become familiar with the principals of satellite images, pixels, histograms and color contrast.
Students reclassify a satellite image of land use and isolate the industry class. They show industry as a 1 and everything else as zero. They provide the total area occupied by industry in the image.
Introduction to the concept of classes in remote sensing and how to create new classes. Introduction of color pallets
Students show the industry class as 1 and everything else as zero. Students create a pallet to show images with only two classes.
Students learn about land use and how to obtain area measurements of classes from remote sensing images.
Students use a DEM of the watershed to calculate slope and reclassify slope top show slopes greater than 5
Students are introduced to the concept of slope and runoff
Students show the raw DEM and then the DEM as a 3d Representation. They also show the reclassify slope image with a corresponding pallet.
Students learn the concept of slope and how it is calculated. They also learn how to use software tools to create 3D visualization of landscapes
Using the industrial image and the slope image create a third image that shows industrial sites on slopes greater than 5
Students are shown image overlay operations using the wood grid models
Students present the industry and slope image and explain the overly operation
Students work with rectangular arrays of numerical quantities (matrix math) and learn to solve overlay operations with satellite images.
Students create the ''solution image" by merging industry, slope and water into one image using the reclass and overlay commands.
Students are introduced to the concept of texture and surface for creating fly-by's
Show 3D representation of the ''solution image" and indicate area of interest for the fly-by
Students use three dimensional representation of images of the surface of the earth to visualize the runoff water pollution problem. They reflect on possible solutions to the problem of water pollution.
Students create fly-by animations showing problem areas for water pollution. While fly by's compile they work on putting together their final presentation.
Students are presented with different strategies for creating fly=by's
Show the test runs of the fly-bys
Students experiment with 3D visualization techniques
Students finish fly-by and final presentation. They create a final conclusion slide.
Groups present their first draft of the final presentation. They receive feed back from camp staff
Students synthesize the problem and its solution into one single Power Point presentation.
Final presentation to the public
Students experience public speaking.
