Title: Urban Sprawl and Sediment Loading in the Chesapeake Bay-- Remote Sensing Lesson
Url: http://gistr3.delmar.edu/igett/LU_krim.html
Publisher: Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training Project (iGETT)
Description: This lesson from iGETT asks students to develop a model to examine the relationship between land use and sediment loading. Data from the Chesapeake Bay region will be utilized. Remote sensing imagery will be analyzed alongside a GIS watershed model; the lesson will not only provide good practice at using ArcGIS and ENVI, but will also help students understand the possible correlations between urban sprawl and watershed protection.

A learning unit summary, instructor and student guides, supporting documents and data files are included. A quick, free login is required to view or download the materials.
