New LiDAR Site Functionality

Posted April 8, 2014, 3:08 p.m.

In cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the GeoTREE Center (Jonathan Voss) has developed a new extension to the LiDAR data dissemination site. The new functionality allows the derivation of DEM, contour, and hillshade products for a user-defined study area. The application sends an email when these derived products are ready for download. The new tool has been added to the interface at http://www.geotree.uni.edu/lidar/. Read the information describing the new tool at http://www.geotree.uni.edu/lidar/static/derived_products_metadata.html. If any questions please contact John DeGroote at john.degroote@uni.edu.

GeoTREE working with the city of Dubuque and Dubuque Soil and Water Conservation District

Posted Dec. 10, 2013, 4:29 p.m.

 The GeoTREE Center is developing a custom GIS database for the city of Dubuque and Dubuque Soil and Water Conservation District. The database created will allow WinSLAMM modeling to be easily carried out for the Catfish Creek Watershed utilizing the ArcSLAMM toolbox developed by the GeoTREE Center. This will aid in urban stormwater management programs in the watershed. Two students are working on the project in the GeoTREE Center (Alex Newkirk and Jonathan Beavers). This project will provide relevant real world GIS experience to the students.

GeoTREE provides ArcSLAMM Training

Posted Aug. 27, 2013, 3:36 p.m.

 John DeGroote and GeoTREE student research assistants Dan Murphy and Rebecca Gronewold provided three free training sessions for a new set of ArcGIS tools that will work with the urban stormwater planning model WinSLAMM. The new tools, called ArcSLAMM, are developed to provide a much more efficient workflow for using GIS and WinSLAMM for urban stormwater planning in urban areas.

Three training sessions were provided at the Dubuque City Hall, on the UNI campus, and at the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship in Des Moines on August 23, 28, and 29th. Attendees included state agency personnel, city engineering employees from Dubuque, Cedar Falls, and Waterloo, County Soil and Water Conservation District employees from Black Hawk, Dubuque, and Polk Counties, and several enviornmental/engineering consulting firms.

The ArcSLAMM tools will be made freely available on the GeoTREE website at the end of September.
