3rd graders in Laramie's Beitel Elementary School learn about remote sensing

Students in the 3rd grade of Beitel Elementary School, Laramie were introduced to remote sensing through a combination of ground photographs and aerial images of their school and its surroundings. Students interpreted features on the true color and infrared photos.

Students compared Laramie's prominent landmarks (UW War Memorial Stadium, Arena etc) in aerial and conventional ground-based photos.

Following this, they looked aerial photographs and described how different areas of their school from a vertical or birds-eye view.

This educational evening activity was conducted on 16 November 2006 by WyomingView Coordinator Ramesh Sivanpillai, and WyGISC Research Scientists Ken Driese and Wendy Berelson as part of the Earth Observation Day.
