In a short 10-weeks, DEVELOP teams across the country used NASA Earth observations to better inform environmental decision-making. During this time, participants presented their work, created outstanding project videos, and made lasting connections throughout the program.
Congratulations to the Texas Water Resources team at DEVELOP’s North Carolina - NCEI node. The team worked with the Texas A&M Forest Service and the USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station Threat Assessment Center to use NASA Earth science data for studying drought in Texas. Check out their work! Check out their hard work here!

Neda Kasraee wanted to share her NASA DEVELOP work with a wider network. What she didn’t know was that reaching out to the right people would put her in front of an audience of hundreds of GIS professionals.

DEVELOPers attended the George Wright Society Conference in Norfolk, Virginia to demonstrate how America's national parks can benefit from the use of NASA Earth observations in their decision making processes. These collaborative projects were highlighted in two sessions, one co-chaired by NASA and NPS. This session concluded with the presentation of an "Intermountain Region Natural Resources Partnership" award to the NASA DEVELOP Program on behalf of the NPS Intermountain Region for the program's efforts and support during the National Park Service's Centennial. Many thanks to the National Park Service!
Congratulations to Austin Counts, selected as the Spring 2017 DEVELOPer of the Term! Austin was nominated by the Wise County and the Idaho Center Leads for his remarkable communication and collaboration skills. He worked on a multi-node, collaborative project and helped to ensure successful end results, even though participants were separated by two time zones and nearly 2,000 miles. He not only pre-emptively identified problems and solutions, but his hard-work ethic was contagious and motivated team members to accomplish project goals with little direction from project or node leadership. In essence, he embodied a leader's personality while still maintaining personable team relations.
