Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
DOINews: Upcoming Training Course on Software for Assisted Habitat Modeling for VisTrails
VisTrails is an open-source management and scientific workflow system designed to integrate the best of both scientific workflow and scientific visualization systems. The Software for Assisted Habitat Modeling for VisTrails (SAHM) expedites habitat modeling and helps maintain a record of the various input data, the steps before and after processing, and the modeling options incorporated in the construction of an ecological response model.
Training for the Software for Assisted Habitat Modeling for VisTrails will be held on:
March 25-26, 2014
September 9-10, 2014
March 24-25, 2015
September 8-9, 2015
During this course, participants will
• learn the functionality and use of the SAHM:VisTrails package,
• get an overview of the statistical packages included in the SAHM, and
• work through an example species distribution dataset. After this course, participants will be prepared to
• understand and apply the SAHM:VisTrails package to their own datasets, and
