Digital Coast  NOAA Coastal Services CenterMarian Hanisko has shared a bunch of new free webinars over on StormSmart Connect. They’re all put on by the NOAA Coastal Services Center, so they’re undoubtedly high quality. And they’re free. Hope you can make some of them.

Using ENOW Data to Help Monitor Economic Health in Coastal Counties
May 26, 2011; 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (eastern)
The oceans and Great Lakes support a wide range of economic sectors in coastal communities, including living resources, marine construction, marine transportation, offshore mineral resources, ship and boat building, and tourism and recreation. The Economics: National Ocean Watch (ENOW) data set incorporates data on these vital sectors of our national economy using four economic indicators: establishments, employment, wages, and gross domestic product. This webinar will introduce users to data that tell a compelling story of the economic importance of the nation’s oceans and Great Lakes.

How Has Your County Changed?
June 30, 2011; 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (eastern)
Understanding how a coastal county’s land cover has changed over the years is an excellent way to document trends, understand the effects of past land use decisions, and consider future land use planning needs. The Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) examines land cover changes in the nation’s coastal areas. The C-CAP Land Cover Atlas is a new Web-based tool that does not require GIS or advanced technical expertise. This tool helps users to explore and communicate land cover change and trend information with county-specific maps, statistics and reports.

N-SPECT Web-based Training
July 14, 2011; 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (eastern)
This three-hour, instructor-led training introduces participants to the technical aspects of the GIS-based tool and leads them through hands-on exercises that serve to demonstrate various functions of the tool. The target audience includes GIS professionals working on land use and watershed management projects, including regional and municipal planners, natural resource managers, and others who desire to apply GIS technology to better understand the relationships between land use and water quality.

Engaging Stakeholders in Coastal Management through Participatory Mapping
July 27, 2011; 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (eastern)
Many coastal management agencies devote resources to organizing and depicting spatial information through the use of a geographic information system (GIS). Additionally, agencies have moved toward processes that involve stakeholders, acknowledging the importance of public attitudes, perceptions, and knowledge. This webinar will examine the role of stakeholder engagement in coastal management and the use of participatory mapping as a tool to support decision-making.
