Abstract:What would you do if you were faced with organizing 30 years of remote sensing projects that had been haphazardly stored at two separate locations for years then combined? The EPA Remote Sensing Archive, currently located in Las Vegas, Nevada. contains the remote sensing data and products generated by the Environmental Photographic Interpretation Center (EPIC) over its 30 year history. What was once a disparate collection of materials has been inventoried, barcoded and organized into a one-of-a-kind collection of irreplaceable remote sensing data. This facility including over 5,500 rolls and 75,000 cut-frames of aerial photography, over 4,250 reports, and over 4,000 CD-ROMS of digital data from various sensors including Landsat Thematic Mapper, IKONOS, A VIRIS, Hyperion, and Hymap. The inventory is now managed by specialized library software and the database is increasing daily. This presentation will discuss the historical development of this unique facility, projects currently underway and its potential future contribution to the Agency's remote sensing program and information technology efforts.
