Abstract

ABSTRACT

Cloud-based Land Change Modeler Application:

Summer Internship with Clark Labs, Worcester, MA

Lei Rong

This report provides a detailed illustration of my internship experience with Clark Labs in Worcester, MA, during the summer of 2015. The internship is about two Land Change Modeler projects which conducted by Esri. The first one is a cloud-based Land Change Model on ArcGIS online for professional change analysts. Another one is a free cloud-based App for land change analysts and the public to explore land change of 48 states in United State. This work mainly relied on TerrSet skills and Land Change Modeler skills. As an GIS analyst, my responsibilities were data extraction, preparation, and modeling test. In June 6th, I started my internship at Clark Labs, and am continuing work till now. I think I gained a lot GIS and non-GIS experience during this time period. In an academic perspective, I got a full understanding of Land Change Modeler and TerrSet during this time period. Socially, I made a connection with students and staffs in Clark Labs. Overall, it is a great experience to me!
