Last day / wrap up

So it’s all over! WE presented our findings to the group today on our posters and with a short verbal summary. It was really sad to say good bye to everyone but I know that the knowledge I have gained through this experience will lead to even more exciting research in the future. I can’t thank CSLUB and NSF […]

Analysis Week at CSLUB!

I was sad to leave Kauai and all the new people that I met there. This week we have all been working hard on using the data we collected to complete our individual projects. I am preforming a supervised classification in ERDAS on both the QuickBird and World View 2 imagery. The extra bands of the WV2 imagery are […]

Day 19

I went to the emergency room this morning. The lump had gotten golf ball sized. I have a staph infection and have been prescribed antibiotics. I am feeling much better but I miss my home and my dog.

Day 18

Today we did a lot of lab work and went on a tour of the gardens. I successfully completed my first supervised classification in ERDAS.  I got bit by something on my face and think I have a staph infection

Day 17

Today we went back to the field to gather more data for our projects. The team is excited to combine all of our points and compare them.  I also helped out with the spectrometer more today. I gained experience using the SpectraWiz software on the YUMA to take readings and store data. I also used […]

Day 16

Today vegetation team set out to collect data for our individual projects. We are all gathering GPS points of both native and invasive vegetation but for different reasons. The points that we all individually take will benefit the main research project by adding more points for comparison. . I am going to be comparing 4 […]

Day 15

Today we stayed in the ed center and processed data. We also got our assignments for our personal projects. I am going to compare the WorldView and QuickBird imagery to access the value of 8 band imagery. I also finally had shave ice in Koloa!

Day 14

ANOTHER BEST DAY EVER!!!! Today we went Napauli Coast State Park! We took an amazing boat tour around the island going into several sea caves and seeing some great coastal volcanic features. Matt was full of information about the ancient Polynesian cultural beliefs and hiking trail tips. We then got to the beach and did […]

Day 13

BEST DAY EVER!!!!!! We got to tour the island and see Wiamea Canyon!!!! We also went to many local look outs” this island is a truly amazing and beautiful place! Best of all beneath all that pretty is a amazing geological and natural history that could keep any researcher hypothesizing for centuries! We got to […]

Day 12

Today we went into the field with Lida Burney to take some GPS points of both rare native and invasive plants. We will link these points with the RMS images we have created with the fixed wing, GateWing, and kite to begin to test methods to more accurately identify plant life by RMS means. I […]
