Q & A: Studying Louisiana Wetlands

It's a new year filled with new questions from my GIS teacher friends.  Solving questions and having students go on that quest is so powerful.



Question: I have a GIS student who is interested in learning some things about Louisiana’s water. She is interested in studying wetlands and salinity as a first topic choice. Erosion and river silt problems along the coast would be a 2nd choice.

Do any of these sound reasonable (because you can help us find data sources)? Do you have data sources that might lead her in some other directions?

Answer:  The fine folks of Louisiana have a DVD of state geospatial resources.  
I have a two DVD set from 2007.  It's now available for download at: http://lagic.lsu.edu/geodata/LOSCO/2007_DVD/default_2007DVD.htm.  They have a quick start guide to that data collection also: http://lagic.lsu.edu/geodata/LOSCO/2007_DVD/downloads/2007DVD_Quick_Start_v20071017.pdf
