Selected GIS Work for Non-Profits
Clean the Bay - Narragansett Bay is a long history of military activity. Dubious remnants of this activity remain in the form of abandoned boats, “camels” and other debris. Clean the Bay got to work removing much of this debris and maps of the locations were prepared for publicity purposes.
Nunckatesset Greenway Committee - The Towns of West Bridgewater and Bridgewater share a wonderful greenway along the Town River, connecting canoe launches, urban areas, schools, hiking trails, parklands and areas of historical significance. This Greenways map now assists stakeholders in visualizing the common connections these areas share.
The Esplanade Association - Home of the 4th of July Boston Pops, the Esplanade Park borders the Charles River in Downtown Boston. The Esplanade Association did an extensive GPS survey of every tree, trail, bench and sign. The GPS data was mapped and a poster was created of the results.
Charlestown Land Trust / South County Conservancy - Peacefully tucked away in southern Rhode Island, the Charlestown Land Trust was looking for a way to organize its land holdings. A Map Viewer was created so constituents could view the Trusts parcels and see what other resources were nearby.
Friends of Carvers Pond - Carvers Pond is a wonderful little pond, just off the center of Bridgewater, feeding into the Taunton River. The stewardship folks wanted a simple map to help assist in coordinating their cleanup efforts.
Town River Survey Map Report - A few years ago, a swarm of dedicated volunteers descended on the length of the Town River, noting all pollution sources and threats. As part of the final report of this survey, a map of the locations was developed, assisting readers in understanding where the cleanup efforts needed to be targeted.
Taunton River Watershed Alliance- The Taunton River Watershed land area is quite large. This wall sized map was created as a education piece for local schools. By breaking the watershed into the sub-watersheds, students get a better sense of how watersheds flow and how they fit in to the larger picture.
GreenBuild 2008 Conference Tours - In 2008, the national GreenBuild Conference was held in Boston. Part of the conference consists of Field Trips to view Green Projects. Google Map files were created for each location, thereby assisting conference participants in understanding the how to get there and where the tours will take them.
