Join the webinar presented by the Extreme Heat Network on Zoom at https://arizona.zoom.us/j/664723511.
Pete Aniello will present the Trust for Public Land's new urban heat island dataset, which consists of raster data showing where urban heat islands are located in all 14,000 cities, towns, and census-designated places inthe United States. This publicly accessible dataset is analysis-ready, and contains the relative heat severity for every pixel for every city in the United States. This 30-meter resolution raster was derived from Landsat 8 imagery band 10 (ground-level thermal sensor) from the summers of 2018 and 2019.
As Senior Manager for Science and Analytics, Pete Aniello has over 30 years of experience in the geospatial field, and is the technical lead for geospatial analysis at The Trust for Public Land. Prior to TPL, Pete worked at Sandia National Laboratories as a senior scientist; Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) as a technical manager; Digital Globe as a photogrammetrist; Raytheon as a program manager of the ASTER Digital Elevation Model (DEM) program; and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) as a geospatial analyst. Pete graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Geology from the University of Kansas, and a Master of Engineering in Geographic Information Systems from the University of Colorado – Denver. He is an American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Certified Photogrammetrist (CP), and an Esri ArcGIS Certified Desktop Professional. He has been a resident of the southwest for 20 years, and currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
