 STEM DIGITAL will use the AnalyzingDigitalImages software which provides
 free, easy-to-use tools for spatial, temporal, spectral, and intensity
 measurements. It will show how digital image analysis can be applied to
 environmental quality issues in ways that can readily be introduced into
 STEM courses, engaging students and encouraging them to think about 
 related careers. The program will develop research agendas that will 
 employ a variety of image analysis tools.
