Abstract or Description

Our project sought to create the first geographically accurate map of campus. The intent of our project was to build a foundation of GIS data to both benefit the Physical Plant Department and enable future research opportunities for GIS students. PPD requested an updated map of campus, as well as analyses of bike infrastructure, light infrastructure, handicap accessibility and optimal walking path placement. We produced a series of recommendations to PPD, detailed in our other posters. This poster primarily details the campus basemap itself, and how we created it.
