Day 17

Posted on June 28, 2012

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 the Gcamera software to take gps tagged pictures of the specimens we were gathering. I am impressed with the YUMA’S capabilities and ruggedness.  Jake even used his solar powered charging station to run the spectrometer! It was really funny to use the sun to power the equipment that takes readings of reflected sunlight! The rest of the day was spent as lab time at the gardens. The education center over looks a breath taking view of the garden itself making it an amazing place to work! Tomorrow we have group presentations about our various individual projects and about how they will all benefit the over all project. After dinner we a lecture from Matt about his work with GIS and rare plant models
