Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents ... NOAA Digital Coast

The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.

The NOAA Digital Coast was developed to meet the unique needs of the coastal management community. The website provides not only coastal data, but also the tools, training, and information needed to make these data truly useful. Content comes from many sources, all of which are vetted by NOAA. The Data Registry allows users to explore and download data. Data sets range from economic data to aerial based lidar data. This webinar will provide an overview of the Digital Coast as well as show users how to search for and download data through the Data Registry and the Data Access Viewer.

Erik Hund is a Physical Scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. He has over 30 years of experience working with aerial photography and satellite imagery, and is the Co-Lead on the Digital Coast Project.
