    GIS Usage within the Sciences

    Presentation Outline:

    Presentation Summary: In this presentation we will talk about how a NOAA, NASA and DOE are using GIS to provide robust geospatial information and products to the general public. These products can be used for weather / climate forecasting, ocean information (salinity / temperature), imagery and other statistical analysis. These Federal organizations are a small subset of the potential data sources provided for GIS scientific data to the general public.
