- Describe how sea surface temperatures are mapped
- Explain how sea surface temperature maps are used to predict El Niño events
- Outline a plausible workflow used by MDA Federal (formerly EarthSat) to create the high-resolution GEOCOVER global imagery and GEOCOVER-LC global land cover datasets.
- Outline a plausible workflow for habitat mapping, such as the benthic habitat mapping in the main Hawaiian Islands as part of the NOAA Biogeography program
The Domain Applications knowledge area focuses on the linkages between the foundational GIS&T competencies found in other components of the Body of Knowledge and their implementation across a wide range of application areas, highlighting their scope and depth and providing evaluation of their impacts.
More than 30 thematic topics have already been identified for this Knowledge Area, and many of these are already under development. Listed alphabetically below, this number is anticipated to grow over time as existing themes expand and new application areas are identified.
Italicized Topics indicate application areas for which we are currently seeking entry authors. If you wish to contribute to an unassigned topic or if you’d like to propose an entry on a topic missing from the list, please contact the Domain Applications knowledge area editor Jeff Hamerlinck <jeff.hamerlinck @ uwyo.edu>.
