Turners Falls High School and the U.S. Community Atlas

Map from Turner Falls High School GIS project The Springfield Republican reports on a GIS project conducted by students of Turners Falls High School, which is part of ESRI’s U.S. Community Atlas program. The students produced a number of maps of the towns of Gill, Montague and Erving, Massachusetts. From The Republican: “They had mapped and described numerous aspects of their community including population density, geologic features, environmental challenges, population density, scenic views, recreational opportunities, governmental services and shopping and dining options.” ESRI’s page links to many other such projects.
