The 2015 GIS Poster Expo took place this week, showcasing the work and research of UEP, Fletcher, civil and environmental engineering, undergraduates and others. Project topics ranged from food hub site suitability to transportation access to international conflict sites. Each project used Geographic Information System to create maps of issues related to their studies.
This poster, by Griffin Richards, focused on Massachusetts salt marshes, and below Timothy Grant looks at property values along the Malden River.
The event culminated in an awards ceremony, with several runners up shown below:
The winner of the event was Fletcher student Wil Mackey, whose project focused on violent events related to the war in Iraq. His project took the form of an interactive web site, and the user could scroll through a number of maps and charts with a deeper level of analysis.
The event provided an opportunity for researchers across different fields to compare methods of using Geographic Information Systems in their work, and acted as a reunion for GIS classes from the previous semester.
