The Stroud Water Resource Center received funding from the National Science Foundation to create new educational tools that will help students learn about watershed processes in a game-like environment.
GeoTrellis runs hydrologic models and quickly returns results as student users adjust parameters in Model My Watershed. This allows them to simulate changes to the landscape and then visualize the impact of these changes on the local ecosystem. Students are also able to draw custom bounding boxes and query against several raster datasets. Read more about the project here.
