  • - Planning & Recruitment: PlanetNYC, GISS, NYCDOH-MH, NY Academy of Medicine, Columbia Undergrad. Scholar’s Program, Brooklyn Tech, CUNY Macaulay, individual students and faculty. - Preliminary Fieldwork: 108 th St., Mapping (Sanborn, Google), features potentially affecting heat, photographs, field notes - Consultation with GISS & NYCDOH-MH: Stuart Gaffin & NASA team, Tom Matte, Sarah Johnson Development of wiki Monitoring protocols: Columbia Center for New Media Teaching & Learning, sampling buffer zone & numbering system married to Sanborn Maps, Equipment Team organization: Mr. Givens (now deployed in the US Military) provided structure & made assignments & students also volunteered for assignments Beta site – 149 th St. The first two sites came down before the start of fieldwork (Tech students and faculty had to finish their school year first) Weekly team meeting: being able to use the NYCDOH-MH conference room has contributed to the project’s success
  • With Stuart Gaffin & Bureau of Environmental Surveillance & Policy. 13 sties were picked. 11 were targeted (2 came down on the day fieldwork began) WHY IS GIS COVARIATE BUFFERS PIC HERE?
  • - Advance Team: Site Survey, Map Prep., Site Prep. - Field Team: Data Collection, Data Entry, Data Submission - Admin. & Tech Support: Develop Software Applications, Create Forms, Establish Workflow, Data Collection, Archive, Database
  • Yoo, If a Tech student takes, they need to get it down to about 1 brief sentence for each bullet point. “We meet at the site. We start between 12:30 and 1 PM. We start at the location of the city monitor and (describe using the illustration on the slide), we take two readings for every location each time we go out. We try to go out to each site at least twice, etc. You can show the next slides and others you add while they talk. They should be in the right order.
  • Our “ground zero” in the field
  • Explain how it was developed and how it is used in the field Find one that has an intersection (west 98th or park ave) Make another slide full blown up
  • Explain tape and how symbols relate to Sanborn map Change th epicture
  • Field Team 2 on W/ 98 th St. (the monitor is located on the corner of West End Ave. & 98 th )
  • Recording data in a field notebook
  • ASK ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE PICTURES--should they just take one slide per pic
  • The scaffolding at 147th, to show one of the variable conditions WE CAN DECIDE TO GET RID OF THIS SLIDE IF NECESSARY
  • Pictures of 147th-- one completely exposed, one near a shadow provided by both awning and tree WE CAN GET RID OF THE SLIDE IF NECESSARY
  • QUESTION: EVALUATION PART… should us, the participants do quick comments on our experience, what we got out ot this, etc in courtesy of the DoH?
