The Atlas of Maine is a series of maps developed by students in Introduction to GIS and Remote Sensing, an interdisciplinary course in the Environmental Studies Program at Colby College. The goal of this activity is to develop a series of maps highlighting the unique human and natural resources of Maine.
The Atlas maps (issue/number 1) emphasize "visual" GIS.
Student research projects (issue/number 2) emphasize "analytical" GIS.
