Digital Mapping

A Collaboration with Dyk Eusden (Geology) began in the spring to bring digital mapping technologies to Bates. ┬áThese technologies extend the work in the computer room to the field, thereby providing users with better “real-time” information in the field. ┬áThese data then enable workers to make informed decisions in the field. The technology is now on campus and is available to those who wish to use it.
