Round Table:

Ron:  arcpy and pandas to talk together (share versions for stacks WinPython,  wheels are the new eggs (.whl instead of .exe)

Theresa:  working on GeoNIS

Kelly: Netmap users= they are repackaging for more users,  maybe an esri toolbox, if you have thoughts on what you'd like to see, send to Kelly C.

Dave:  ArcGIS on-line useful because you don't need a server.  CartoGIS was harder to share with others.  In ArcGIS, the distance measurements, if you snap, turn off layers that aren't in the data frame coordinate system, for better performance.

Heather- calculating new stand height vairable.  She received the Denas Award for outstanding FRA

David Bell:   Generalized Random Tessellation Stratified (GRTS) survey design: This is the same method folks mentioned in the meeting developed by EPA. The paper describing the method can be found here.
