Abstract or Description
A major east-west highway through Maine has been long debated by politicians, private corporations and environmentalists. The proposed highway has the potential to bring increased economic productivity to isolated communities and create more efficient travel routes, but it may also impact the landscape of the northern region of the state. The goal of this project was to estimate the proposed route of the highway and develop a simple model to estimate its relationship with elevation and land cover types.
