Landsat staff participated in the Intertribal Timber Council’s (ITC) 31st Annual National Indian Timber Symposium that took place in Polson, MT. Jeannie Allen, a remote sensing education specialist with the Landsat Project, and Ken Bailey, geospatial liaison between NASA and the Department of the Interior, helped to assure that the potential contributions of remote sensing in general and Landsat in particular to timbering and forestry are well understood by the ITC.

At the symposium, a day-long GIS/Remote Sensing workshop was held. It attracted about 50 participants (out of about 300 symposium attendees). The group recommended that a central clearinghouse of remote sensing and GIS resources specifically for Tribal foresters be created.
