Introduction to N-SPECT Training

Land use professionals use the Nonpoint-Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool (N-SPECT) to investigate potential water quality impacts from land use and land cover changes, including development, and from environmental disturbances such as storms and climate change. If you think you might be interested in this tool <http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/nspect/>, then this July 22 training is for you.  The hands-on GIS-based workshop will cover how N-SPECT is commonly used, relay helpful tips, and give participants the opportunity to ask questions.  Advance registration is required as seating is limited.
