Sedona AZ (October 12, 2016) – The Oak Creek Apples Macintosh User Group (OCAMUG) will meet on Wednesday, October 19, at the Elks Lodge off Airport Road in West Sedona.
Beginning at 5:00 PM:
Is your Mac misbehaving? Do you want to know how a new feature works, or what’s in the latest update? local Mac/PC consultant Alan Gore will field questions the audience might have about the Mac. At this session, please feel free to ask any Apple-related question, from the most basic to the most advanced. Come listen, learn, and ask questions about the Macintosh computer. We stress that there are no “dumb” questions. Attendees of this portion are usually about evenly split between folks new to the Mac and those with greater familiarity with the magical machine. But everyone seems to learn something.
The Main Meeting starts at 6:15 PM: This month our feature presentation will be:
Planetary Cartography with the
Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS)
Dr. Ken Edmundson, photogrammetrist for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Flagstaff, will discuss software developed by the USGS for planetary cartography, the Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers (ISIS). Against a backdrop of missions from Apollo to the 2015 New Horizons encounter with Pluto and the upcoming OSIRIS-Rex sample return mission to the asteroid Bennu, Ken will present an overview of the ISIS software, it’s origins, history, science, and a glimpse of the future.
