Utah Vacation

At the beginning of the summer we took a family vacation out to Utah.  Our destination was the “grand circle” of National Parks there: Zion, Bryce, Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef.  The scenery was breathtaking from start to finish, and particularly interesting for a geology buff like me.

I took over two thousand photos over the course of our nine-day visit, and chose my favorite few dozen for one set. Enjoy!

Block Island Field Trip

For my remote sensing class, we went on a ground-truthing trip to Block Island. In lab, we each did a region-of-interest supervised classification of some IKONOS data. The purpose of the field trip was to assess the accuracy of our classification. We lucked out on the date of the field trip and got perfect weather: clear skies and high 70s.

Using a few of the photos from Sachem Pond, I made my first panorama (Photoshop did most/all of the work). Considering I just used the automatic warp and default settings, it came out really nicely.

York Pond

For my group project in ENVS41, my team is looking at some of the issues at York Pond and Blackstone Park. The green space acts as a buffer between the built, suburban area on the East Side and the Seekonk River. We went down there and walked around the Pond to get a better sense of the problems we were looking to address. Here are some photos I took from the trip.
