Geospatial Courses benefit from 21st Century tools

With the recent acquisition of new GIS software, students of Laura Estabrooks’ Geospatial Technology and Geospatial Analysis classes have received professional grade software that enables them to investigate world issues involving the environment, habitat, planning, government, conservation, health, and many other matters. According to Mrs. Estabrooks,  “The program enables collection of data on a wide range of issues.  Locally, the Geospatial Analysis Class will be working with the Hinkson Creek Stream Team mapping healthy vegetation, water contamination, litter and whatever other monitoring parameters are set.” This GIS software is the worldwide industry standard, giving students who master its use an advantage in future jobs and internships.
