Dr. Annette Schloss, Research Scientist at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, will discuss PicturePost, which is part of the Digital Earth Watch (DEW) network that supports environmental monitoring by citizens, students, and community organizations through digital photography and satellite imagery. Learn how teachers and students can contribute using digital images in a growing archive aimed at measuring environmental change.
