High Impact Targeting (HIT) Model
In this tutorial, the user will get an introduction to the HIT Model, which includes a background on how the HIT Model was developed and its basic functions. By the end of this tutorial the user should have an understanding of how the HIT Model was developed, how to access support information about the HIT Model from researchers, who to contact with questions, and the different ways the user can access the data (by watershed, address, or map).
In this tutorial, the user will get an even more in depth lesson on these three techniques. When this tutorial is complete, the user should have an understanding on how to get to the HIT Table or HIT Data box on the project webpage and in Bing Maps. More information on how to use the HIT Table or HIT Data box can be found in Tutorial 3: Using the HIT Model Tables.
In this tutorial, the user will get an in depth lesson on viewing HIT Model outputs using HIT Tables. When this tutorial is complete, the user should have an understanding of how to get to HIT Table outputs using the projects webpage and Bing Maps, how to view which watersheds are contributing the most erosion and sediment, what Best Management Practices (BMP) are the most cost effective, and where in a watershed BMPs can be placed.
This tutorial will provide a necessary foundation and answer some basic question regarding Bing Maps and the HIT Model. At the end of the tutorial, the user should know how to navigate to the HIT Model on Bing Maps from the HIT Model project webpage, understand the tools and functions of Bing Maps, and understand how the HIT Model interacts with Bing Maps to visually represent the data outputs.
