Oahu's GIS day 2014
NOAA's C-CAP Dataset and it's many uses. Webinar hosted by the HIGICC
This presentation will provide an overview of NOAA’s Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) land cover data products, the methods used to develop this data, and the current status of C-CAP's land cover update efforts for the state of Hawaii
Nationally standardized land cover and land cover change information for the coastal U.S., including Hawaii, are available from NOAA's Digital Coast website. These data products provide an inventory of intertidal areas, wetlands, and adjacent uplands. Most of the map products are updated every five years. High resolution land cover data are also available for selected areas, which is particularly helpful for smaller, enclosed geographies such as the Pacific Islands. This presentation will provide an overview of NOAA’s Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) land cover data products, the methods used to develop this data, and the current status of C-CAP's land cover update efforts for the state of Hawaii. Additionally, some of the various tools and technical assistance available for end users will be discussed.
Location: MEDB Malcolm Training Center, 1305 N. Holopono St., Suite 5, Kihei, Hawaii

Mapping and Visualizing Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts
Web presentation; September 17 at 10AM-11AM
The Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer is a national product produced by the NOAA Coastal Services Center and hosted on the Digital Coast website. The viewer serves as a helpful teaching and planning tool that lets users visualize potential impacts from sea level rise.

Hawaii Pacific GIS Conference March 5-7, 2012
HIGICC, the Hawaii State GIS Program and the Hawaii Coastal Zone Management Program jointly sponsored the Hawaii Pacific GIS Conference which was held March 5-7, 2012 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
New versions of Hawaii Island and Oahu were released by the USGS in December 2011. The new versions contain updates to GNIS names and IDs.
The datasets are available for download in geographic coordinates at the National Hydrography Dataset’s Pre-Staged Subregions ftp site:
Reprojected datasets in UTMzone 4N are available from the Hawaii State GIS Program web site (http://hawaii.gov/dbedt/gis). Please contact Malie Beach-Smith (malie.beach-smith [at] doh.hawaii.gov) for assistance in obtaining reprojected datasets in Albers, State Plane, or others, or for comments and questions.
HIGICC is a private non-profit organization of professionals and students from the federal, state, county, education, and private sectors of Hawai'i's GIS community. Our goal is to provide coordination of GIS activities among a wide range of GIS users in order to avoid duplication of effort, promote data sharing, and maintain data standards throughout the state.
HIGICC strives to bring together and continue to build the geographic community into a cohesive, recognized coordinating body that facilitates the use, development, sharing, and management of geographic data and communicates the value of geographic information to citizens and decision-makers. In the State of Hawaii, GIS is recognized and effectively used as an invaluable tool by the government, business and the citizens for understanding and managing our aina (environment). The Hawaii GICC is a shared mechanism for the diverse community to identify, explore, and solve problems using geospatial technology and information.
