John DeGroote and GeoTREE student research assistants Dan Murphy and Rebecca Gronewold provided three free training sessions for a new set of ArcGIS tools that will work with the urban stormwater planning model WinSLAMM. The new tools, called ArcSLAMM, are developed to provide a much more efficient workflow for using GIS and WinSLAMM for urban stormwater planning in urban areas.
Three training sessions were provided at the Dubuque City Hall, on the UNI campus, and at the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship in Des Moines on August 23, 28, and 29th. Attendees included state agency personnel, city engineering employees from Dubuque, Cedar Falls, and Waterloo, County Soil and Water Conservation District employees from Black Hawk, Dubuque, and Polk Counties, and several enviornmental/engineering consulting firms.
The ArcSLAMM tools will be made freely available on the GeoTREE website at the end of September.
