This session will show you where to find ready-to-use satellite imagery to use in your Intrepration presentations and embed in your websites.

Together we will explore a variety of websites, tools, and satellite images that you can use in your outreach.  Many interpretation activities provide opportunities to understand a specific location on Earth at human scale. However, it can be challenging to comprehend ecological changes occurring at larger spatial and temporal scales. This is where satellite imagery and technology can help.

We will discuss strategies and challenges to translating expert-level scientific data, models, methods, vocabulary, and conclusions into citizen science materials that support place-based education across age ranges and educational disciplines. Finally, I'll share ways you can deepen your own sense of place while participating in citizen science activities that improve land cover and land use monitoring at local, regional, and global scales.

Let's find ways for you to use these unique views of Earth in your work!
