Software Developer, Software Engineer, NASA Ecological Forecasting Lab

Website

Sam Hiatt graduated from Utah State University in 2007 with a BS in Geography and minors in Geographical Information Science, Computer Science, and Mathematics. While at USU he worked with Dr. Michael White to develop a new method for monitoring plant phenology using MODIS Direct Broadcast satellite imagery. He currently works with Dr. Rama Nemani at NASA Ames Research Center’s ecological monitoring and forecasting lab leveraging open source software to enhance data access and usability.

Sam is very interested in open source and collaborative geospatial technology and participated in the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial conference in Victoria, Canada in 2007.

Sam lives in Mountain View, California, and away from work he enjoys paragliding, SCUBA diving, and snowboarding (in sequence rather than in parallel).

Sessions

The ecological monitoring and forecasting lab at NASA Ames Research Center produces daily global estimates of parameters related to ecosystem condition. Implementing web services has increased accessibility and greatly improved the usefulness of our data products. We present the TOPS data gateway and show how it is being used by the US National Parks Service to assist resource management.
