Workshop on Using LiDAR Data and GIS Applications for Analyzing Floods

This free workshop will review some successful cases of flood prediction along the Mohawk River in upstate New York. In addition, we will virtually flood the Hofstra University Campus using simple GIS techniques and LiDAR data. The two-hour workshop will utilize a hybrid-style of teaching combining hands-on exercises with case studies in the successful prediction and damage assessment of a river flood. Exercises will utilize Global Mapper software which runs on Windows. Please download the free software at Due to limited availability of laptops/PCs it is strongly recommended that bring your own Windows laptop with the pre-installed Global Mapper software, though instructions will be provided for those who may encounter difficulties on installation. For further details feel free to email the coordinator of this workshop: Dr. Antonios Marsellos.
