UConn Geospatial Technology Program

Green Valley Institute

UConn Geospatial Technology Program
The GTP program, housed within CLEAR, provides technical education and training outside the traditional academic environment. The program's goal is to help municipal land use officials, staff and commission members understand and apply geospatial information technologies to help solve local land use problems and to develop environmentally sensitive land use plans. The program focuses on the use of geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), and global positioning systems (GPS) and introduces new users to these technologies through hands-on training courses.

Geographic Information Systems at the Connecticut DEP
Geographic Information Systems at DEP plays an important role in the DEP's mission of protecting and preserving the environment for present and future generations. DEP develops and shares geospatial information with federal, state, and municipal government agencies. Our GIS Data page provides a wealth of GIS data available for download in NAD83 coordinate system via an ftp site. Check out GIS Data for DEP's environmental resource downloads.

Connecticut's Changing Landscape at the Center of Land use Education and Research (CLEAR) at UConn
The mission of CLEAR is to provide information, education and assistance to land use decision makers, in support of balancing growth and natural resource protection. To achieve

this goal, CLEAR conducts remote sensing research, develops landscape analysis tools and training, and conducts outreach education programs. The Connecticut's Changing Landscape portion of the CLEAR website provides basic information about the growth of developed land during the period 1985 to 2002. Four directly comparable land cover datasets, from 1985, 1990, 1995 and 2002, allow us for the first time to look at, and quantify, landscape change in our state. The land cover data as well as change can be downloaded from this site.

Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC) at the University of Connecticut
MAGIC, the University of Connecticut's Map Library, collects maps, atlases, gazetteers, aerial photographs, and digital geospatial data, as well as resources on the history and current state of cartography.

Green Valley Institute
The Green Valley Institute exists to help the Quinebaug-Shetucket National Heritage Corridor communities and citizens sustain their environment and quality of life while growing their economies. GVI is dedicated to improving the knowledge base from which land use and natural resource decisions are made and building local capacity to protect and manage natural resources as our region grows.
