ESRI UC Map Contest Winner

GIST Director Michael Camponovo was recognized at the 2022 ESRI User Conference in San Diego in the mapping contest education category. The storymap, titled Exploring EMR with Wildfire Satellite Data, focuses on using electromagnetic radiation, remote sensing, and geospatial technology to teach students how to use these resources to measure landscape change after a wildfire.

This mini-unit was developed by Joshua Rosenberg, Brooke Carter, Ryan (Seth) Edwards, Alex Edwards, and Michael Camponovo as part of a National Science Foundation-seed funding supported project led by Arthur Palisoc and STEMEd, LLC. Though we developed the materials for this lesson, this lesson was inspired by extant lessons related to sunspots, including some materials developed by NASA.

This interactive story map was created by the Tennessee Geographic Alliance and the UTK Geography Department Outreach and Engagement Lab. This story map would not have been possible without the guidance of Dr. Stacy Curry-Johnson, Geospatial Research Librarian at Vanderbilt University.
