Authors: Janine Glathar
At the 2014 ESRI UC, Chesapeake Conservancy won the Special Achievement in GIS award for exceptional application of GIS technology. Since 2009, Bucknell has partnered with Chesapeake Conservancy on initiatives to improve the ecological and cultural integrity of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay watershed. We will discuss our use of Chesapeake Conservancy’s GIS methods in a research project and a course with a service learning component that partnered students with local farmers.
