VERMONT BREEDING BIRD ATLAS POSTING

GPS AND GIS WORKSHOP

Vermont's great outdoors beckons, whether one delights in dropping a hook
through the ice, calling in a tom turkey, snowshoeing the Catamount Trail,
participating in the Vermont Butterfly Survey or taking part in the Vermont
Breeding Bird Atlas. Whatever draws one to the outdoors, it is always a
comfort and in some cases a necessity for data collection, to be able to
determine exactly where one is. The instrument of choice is a GPS unit,
standing for Global Positioning System and no larger than a cell phone,
that with satellite technology can determine one's altitude, longitude and
latitude with surprising accuracy and even keep track of one's wanderings.
Rutland County Audubon is sponsoring an introductory workshop to be
presented by Tim Grover of Castleton State College on the basics of GPS.
Tim will address among other topics, the matching of the instrument to the
intended task, the purchase, pricing and availability of an instrument and
finally some actual hands on operation. Information once gathered can be
mapped and combined in a computer driven layering system which goes by the
name of Geographic Information System, in short GIS. Steve Shield who works
out of the Rutland Region Planning Commission office will introduce this
topic and demonstrate its potential relevance to ones particular interest.
The workshop will be held on Thursday, April 3 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at
Castleton State College, Room 157 of the Stafford Academic Center. There is
no charge. Space is limited and so as not to be disappointed please call
Roy Pilcher at 459-2851 in order to check whether an opening is available
and to confirm your reservation.
