GLOBE Star for Landsat Outreach Effort

GLOBE Star for Landsat Outreach Effort

a GLOBE starThe Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) effort is an international science education program for primary and secondary schools that focuses on hand-on learning.

In late September as part of GLOBE, an educational satellite validation field campaign called “Bridging the GAPS from Space: How to validate NASA Satellite Data in the Field” was conducted in Pennsylvania, on the grounds of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Over 130 participants were part of the field campaign to validate tree cover and impervious surface maps created with Landsat data sets of the Upper Delaware River Basin.
This November, the “Bridging the GAPS from Space” project was awarded a GLOBE Star. GLOBE Stars are given to “projects and people who shine… the bright lights that spark our imagination and inspire us with news of GLOBE at work in the world.”
