At ECU, a newly spiffed up and staffed ROVER is fulfilling its potential on all fronts: educational, research, and emergency
response. Thanks to the work and expertise of staff and faculty at the RENCI Engagement Center at ECU Center for Coastal Systems
Informatics and Modeling (RENCI/C-SIM), the ROVER has a busy travel schedule this fall.
RENCI's outreach van, the ROVER, took part in Amateur Radio Field Day on June 28 and 29 with Greenville's Brightleaf Amateur Radio Club,
the local chapter of the nationwide Amateur Radio Relay League, which demonstrated its readiness to broadcast under emergency conditions.
Robert Howard, geological sciences, and Christopher Betancourt, biology, will become East Carolina University's first RENCI at ECU
Center for Coastal Systems and Informatics Modeling Masters Fellows. The single-semester fellowships for fall 2009 provide support for
the students' thesis work.
March 28th (colloquium) and 29th (workshop). Topics, talks, and demonstrations on GIS, Remote Sensing, Terrestrial Laser, Scanning, Web-based GIS and Cartography, Estuarine Mapping, 3D Modeling in GIS, LIDAR Coastal Change, HAZUS, GIS-based Risk Assessment, Geovisualization.
The RENCI at ECU Center for Coastal Systems Informatics and Modeling (C-SIM) is pleased to announce a student Visualization Challenge! The Challenge is open to creative visualization as well as scientific and technological topics, the prime requirement being use of the viswall itself as a medium.
- Students submit an entry form, including a topic and particular software needs. I've asked people to describe their project and any special needs (e.g., software) on the entry form. If we have 10-20 students participating from across campus, it'll be a success. Students will be contacted and confirmed participants after receiving and reviewing entries.
- Ample access and support on the viswall will be provided in the intervening 10 weeks.
- In April we will have an informal presentation and juding, modeled after "American Idol", tentatively Monday, April 21).
- Presentation by the finalists during RENCI's Open House (tentatively Thursday, April 24).
The contest has garnered support for prizes from RENCI, the Center for Hazards Research, the Coastal-Maritime Council, Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Scienecs, and Center for GIScience (Apple iPODs, download certificates, etc.)
