Other times i screenshot because QGIS just doesn't cooperate. For example, when I'm using projected raster imagery in QGIS and I'm near the international dateline or the poles, the raster layer disappears. DEAR LORD DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO RESOLVE THIS? 😭

After 2 days, nearly 500 people, approximately 12 hours of "ask me anything time" and teaching two workshops. came to a close. Sometimes the easiest way to learn something is to simply listen. Some amazing conversations & a user fueled to-do list :)

Anyone know if this is supposed to show all responses to the felt intensity survey? Mine’s not on there…(in any case I am in a disconcerting blob of > mmi 3.5) 😟

Think of it in terms of satellite image data, where you can go back to the bits from the satellite and re-create a processing chain. *Of course* how the data are presented and interpreted intoduce a point of view—but compared to human intelligence or an intercepted transmission?

Maybe it’s fitting, since I made that animation to debunk the notion that the hole in the clouds was caused by the “shock wave” from the eruption—it’s really due to the interaction of the island itself with the marine layer & prevailing winds.

This is a DC sports team we’re taking about. The epic choke is always a possibility. (I say that as a lifelong Caps fan.)

My Q to “How do you frame false-color imagery for general audiences?” A: “Don’t use false-color imagery. (Or maybe write a companion piece explaining the process.)”

1. Make sure you look at all the available data 2. Integrate a little bit of cultural knowledge on tips to accurately interpret satellite images.
