Summer 2022, Congratulations to Kenneth Epketere who received a KansasView mini-scholarship for his work developing the Rapid Image Viewer Web Application leveraging Google Earth Engine archives. Kenneth is working with Jude Kastens to create a tool for the public, government agencies, and researchers to visualize and monitor current and historic landscape disaster related events. The WebApp consists of both optical and radar collections from Landsat, Sentinel, MODIS, and NAIP imagery. Currently the tool provides data for the U.S. and but may extend globally in future developments. The beta version of the Rapid Image Viewer WebApp:

June 2022, KansasView PI and Coordinator, Dana Peterson, had the opportunity to participate in the Ecosystems of Kansas Summer Institute, where middle-school science teachers from around the state learned how to bring geospatial data into their classrooms. Teachers competed in AmericaView’s online satellite imagery puzzles, learned about other AmericaView’s educational resources including other StateView ESRI StoryMaps, completed an ESRI GeoInquiries activity, and learned about existing Web Mapping Applications (WMA) for Kansas related data.
