2016 University of Minnesota Summer Polar Boot Camp
We would like to thank all 31 participants who traveled to Minnesota and spent the week of June 13th with us at the 2016 PGC Boot Camp!
Over the course of four days, PGC staff instructed workshops on a range of subjects relating to commercial satellite imagery and working with geospatial data in the polar regions. Attendees took part in lively group discussions and had the opportunity to receive one-on-one project support from PGC staff.
We look forward to hosting another group of participants from our user community next summer. Subscribe to our newsletter above for details on upcoming events.
Using 8-band WorldView-2 satellite imagery, SpecMap provides spectral analysis of selected ice-free areas in the Transantarctic Mountains in preparation for the 2015-16 deep field logistics hub.
The PGC hosted the National Science Foundation Workshop on Cyberinfrastructure for Polar Sciences from September 10-12, 2013. Click further for workshop objectives, presentations, and archived video streams.

Help us count Weddell Seals in Antarctica! Using high-resolution satellite imagery, researchers can study the population of the Weddell Seal. We have created a tutorial for students to use the same techniques researchers are using.
