GIS, Remote Sensing, and the Intranet in the US Army Corps of Engineers: ENGLink Interactive for Emergency Management
The US Army Corps of Engineers makes extensive use of imagery and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in managing emergency response and recovery. As part of a new initiative, the Corps is developing an integrated system for communications, command and control: ENGLink Interactive (EI). This poster illustrates EI's Intraneted mapping and database components, which enable rapid access to baseline and event-specific data.
Teachers Experiencing Antarctica and the Arctic - TEA Bringing Research Into Classrooms
The centerpiece of the Teachers Expereincing Antarctica and the Arctic (TEA) Program is a research experience in which a K-12 teacher participates in a polar expedition. The TEA teacher works closely with scientists, participates in cutting-edge research, and is immersed in the process of science. Enveloping this field experience is a diversity of professional development opportunities through which TEA teachers increase content knowledge, enhance teaching skills, transfer the experience to the classroom, assume leadership roles, and collaborate with a network of researchers and education colleagues. TEA is a partnership between teachers, researchers, students, the school district, and the community.
