One of EGS Program’s Strengths: Application of GIS to solve Environmental Problems
David Jakim did fieldwork for the biodiversity assessment & habitat map that he produced with volunteers from New Paltz & Highland under the guidance of Hudsonia Ltd. (a non for profit biodiversity institute of the Hudson Valley). David Jakim is digitizing the habitat map in the SUNY New Paltz geography laboratory and Professor Laurence Mcglinn of Geography has been helping David Jakim with the GIS. Together they are writing a paper entitled Associations among GIS Datasets and Habitats, to be presented and submitted for publication at the Millersville Middle States Geographers Conference in November.
