GeoSTAC is a cooperative between universities to serve their respective communities in training and applying the technologies of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing, and Field Mapping/Global Positioning Systems (GPS) techniques.

GeoSTAC was formed with cooperating universites to assist in training by offering online exercises, workshops, and other training opportunities in their communities. GeoSTAC also supports
geospatial training in K-12 education.

GeoSTAC is a developing program integrating state-of-the-art technology into a usable format for educators, and land and resource managers. Participants may include government and tribal agencies, the private sector, not-for-profit organizations, and educational institutions.

GeoSTAC training programs include on-line exercises, field and laboratory workshops, short courses, semester-length courses and topical series.

Field GPS Collection

Working with the University of Idaho and the Idaho Department of Water Resources, Idaho State University has successfully completed the first on-site GeoSTAC field workshop using Landsat Data and the SEBAL algorithm to monitor evapo-transpiration. The SEBAL application is a state of the art study incorporating Remote Sensing and GIS to monitor evapo-transpiration in Southern Idaho and many other places all over the world.
