The second UT Arlington Library: GIS workshop will take place next Thursday, October 25. GIS Librarian Josh Been will be joined by Dr. Melanie Sattler, whose research interests include emissions measurement, air quality modeling, and air pollution control technologies. Using measurements taken from the TCEQ air monitoring stations in North Texas, we will interpolate an estimation layer for the entire region and then analyze road segments using files from the NCTCOG.Everyone is invited to this hands-on workshop!Title: Stuck in Traffic: Find the Road Segments With the Highest Pollution Levels
Date/Time: October 25, 2 – 4pm
Place: Central Library, B20 (basement)
Presenters: Dr. Melanie Sattler (Civil & Environmental Engineering) & Joshua Been (GIS Librarian)
Description: Learn how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to statistically estimate pollution levels within the DFW metroplex and to then identify the street segments that traverse through the regions with the highest levels. Data sources include pollution measurements from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
This hands-on workshop requires no GIS or scientific experience. Open to everyone.
