GISCorps Team Working Remotely from the US for Little Andaman Islands of India


The seven member team has been busy creating various datasets for the Little Andaman Islands of India which was severely affected by the tsunami. Members of this team all reside in the US and are working on this project from their homes and places of employment. They started working on this project in mid February. This team is being lead by one of the GISCorps volunteers, Beni Patel. The other six volunteers are: Prof. Peter Price at North Harris College and his students, Marlen Kokaz, Chandreyee Lahiri, Meredith Williams, Dyhan Appachu, and Anand Trivedi. The team has been working on gathering data (scanning, digitizing, classifying satellite imageries, etc.) and creating spatial and non spatial datasets.
