Nicolas "Miki" Schmidt on the NOAA Digital Coast
NOAA's Digital Coast web portal offers a world of data.
On this episode, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham are joined by Nicolas "Miki" Schmidt, the chief of the Science and Geospatial Division for NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management. As part of his duties, Miki runs NOAA's Digital Coast, the subject for this episode. The Digital Coast was developed to meet the unique needs of the coastal management community. The website provides not only coastal data, but also the tools, training, and information needed to make these data truly useful. Data sets range from economic data to satellite imagery. The site contains visualization tools, predictive tools, and tools that make data easier to find and use. It's a great show about one of the most important data portals on the coast, and it's only on ASPN!
