Story Maps from topics in Environmental Studies fall class

January 13, 2017

Students who attended the Topics in Environmental Studies (ENVS491) fall 2016 class were asked to create Esri Story Maps to showcase their final projects.  Students used a combination of database and spatial analyses to conduct environmental analyses which the students then shared with the class by creating Story Maps.  Project ideas were diverse and included such topics as the development of a TDR model for central Virginia, an impact analysis of the effects of sea level rise on the City of Virginia Beach, patterns of water consumption, identification of prime oyster restoration sites in the Chesapeake Bay, and placement of trail cameras to assess white tailed deer population in the James River Park. 

Links to all the final project Story Maps can be found on the course website at https://rampages.us/envsgis/student-works
