GIS Club Project Portfolio

Got a favorite pothole?

The GIS Club has started its work on the Milwaukee Pothole Mapping project. Download the free MapplerK (not Mappler-K) app from the Apple app store or from the Google Play store then get the log-in details at the project's web site.

See a pothole and map it with Mappler. It's easy and fun.

Watch here for Milwaukee Pothole Mapping project updates.

Members of the GIS Club worked with several non-profits to help them understand where their members live and to characterize their demographics. There are still opportunities for you to get involved. To learn more send an e-mail.

We also helped Professor Huxhold teach GIS skills to 7th and 8th grade students during the third summer of the Pre Urban Planners Preparing for Urban Problems (PUPS) program.

The members of the GIS Club at UWM enjoy applying their skills for the benefit of the community. The club will consider project requests from campus and non-profit community organizations. Since members' time is limited, we can undertake only a small number of projects.

There's no complicated application process, just send an e-mail with a description of the need and the benefit. We'll get back to you to discuss the project.

Some of the projects that we've done in the past are...

We'd like to talk with you about your project ideas.
