Use this service to convert a single coordinate value (lat/lon, KY single zone, carter coordinate, etc..) to 14 different coordinate values. Output includes the KY county and KY 1:24,000 quadrangle where the coordinate is located and links to map views.
Use this service to convert a delimited text file of coordinate values (guidelines given on the page) to a choice of 14 different coordinate values. Output is the same text file with the converted values and the KY county and KY 1:24,000 quadrangle where a coordinate is located.
In 1996, the Education Committee of the Kentucky Geological Survey, in conjunction with the Kentucky Society of Professional Geologists, established the Earth Science Education Network (ESEN). Originally, the network provided a group of geologists who served as resource persons for teachers. In the fall of 1996, ESEN was expanded to provide resources from around the globe using the World Wide Web.
The 2019 annual seminar was held at a new venue, the Jacobs Science Building on the main UK campus, where participants gathered for coffee and donuts before the event started.
KGS Director Bill Haneberg welcomed the participants to the seminar.
UK computer science professor Nathan Jacobs gave the keynote presentation, "Understanding Places Using Ground-Level and Overhead Images."
Kelsey MacCormack, of the Alberta Geological Survey, gave the Donald C. Haney Lecture on Applied Geology. She spoke about the Alberta Survey's 3D mapping program.
Director Bill Haneberg presented MacCormack with the Haney Lecture plaque.
More than 140 people attended the 2019 annual seminar.
Erin Haynes, of the UK College of Public Health, talked about "Engaging Communities in Environmental Research: The Power of Citizen Science."
During a morning break, Antonia Bottoms explained a surficial map she and other KGS mappers prepared with funding from the USGS STATEMAP program.
Participants browsed posters and maps during breaks at the seminar.
During his State of the Survey address, Director Bill Haneberg presented the first Director's Awards to Ryan Pinkston, Liz Adams, William Andrews, and Ray Daniel (not pictured).
Jason Dortch talked about his work at KGS on "Principal Components Analysis of Geomorphic Attributes: Redefining Dimensionality for Clarity."
After the seminar talks, Warren Anderson led one of several tours of KGS, showing participants the specimen displays in the atrium of the Mining and Mineral Resources Building.
