Mill Cove Environmental Center

Map for blog [Converted]

The long term goal for the Mill Cove project is to create an interactive map that can be accessed by Mansfield University students to log their research done in the Mill Cove watershed in northeastern Tioga County. The map will include layers that can be displayed separately or together such as hydrology, soils, topography, Lidar point clouds, and digital elevation models that will help students better understand the data they are collecting. The goal for this semester is to lay out a map foundation that can be edited by these future students. We will be creating this map by utilizing new mapping techniques like UAV imagery and 3D modeling.
