Urban Nonpoint Source Pollution Modeling Using ArcView
Thursday, December 16, 1999 -- 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
Land Information and Computer Graphics Facility
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Course Fee: $250
Enrollment Limit: 16 persons

This all-day class will examine the use of ArcView desktop GIS software to
facilitate a better understanding of the sources and impacts of urban
nonpoint source pollution.  The class will start with an overview of urban
nonpoint source pollution issues and programs and then move to a review of
available urban nonpoint source pollution models and their linkage to GIS
software.  This will be followed by a "hands-on" workshop that allows the
registrant to follow along in the development of a GIS application that
supports use of an urban nonpoint source pollution model.  The Source
Loading and Management Model (SLAMM) will be the primary model used. Topics
that will be covered include:
 Import and integration of local government spatial data including base
maps, land use, storm sewer networks, and urban drainage basin boundaries
("sewersheds");
 Calculation of statistics for urban source areas from land use data to
use as model input; and
 Thematic mapping of calculated pollutant loads.

The course will end with a case study of the use of nonpoint source
pollution models in a local government setting (Dane County, Wisconsin).

Tentative Agenda

8:30-8:45 Welcome/Goals and Objectives/Introductions (15 min)

8:45-9:30 Background on Urban Nonpoint Source Pollution Issues and Programs
(45 min)

9:30-10:30 The Role of GIS in Modeling Urban Nonpoint Source Pollution (60
min)

10:30-10:45 Break (15 min)

10:45-12:00 BASINS Model "Hands-On" (75 min)

12:00-1:00 Lunch (60 min)

1:00-3:00 SLAMM GIS Exercise "Hands-On" (120 min)

3:00-3:15 Break (15 min)

3:15-4:45 Dane County Case Study (90 min)

4:45-5:00 Evaluation (15 min)

This class is designed for local government staff, water resource managers,
and others interested in nonpoint source pollution.  The class will focus
on the linkage of GIS with an urban nonpoint source pollution model and is
not designed to provide a detailed understanding of SLAMM or other urban
nonpoint source pollution models.
