Field Trip to Coulee Baton

I'm looking forward to my field trip this morning to the study area of this semester's GIS project - Coulee Baton. It's north of Kaplan and Abbeville. I have been downloading the DEMs and contours for the area, trying to get them to look right because the study area comprises 4 quads.

Still studying up on terrain and watershed analysis possibilities in ArcMap. As suspected, those algorithms work much better on very hilly terrain than the flatness of my study area.

  1. Learned a lot from Colette about the project on this field trip. I will probably make the rounds of the testing stations again to focus more on the land use in the immediate area, and also upstream in the watershed.
