Over the past eight years, students have used GIS, GPS, and remote sensing in a wide-range of environmental, biological, geological, and socioeconomic applications.  By integrating geospatial technologies into the academic curriculum, students have the opportunity to learn fundamental principles regarding the collection, interpretation, and analysis of geographic information, as well as develop practical skills through hands-on experiences.  For example, students have used GIS to identify the o wners of large tracts of forested land, track wetland gains and losses within state game lands, and generate a groundwater recharge potential map for Mill Run.
