Next Club Meeting-Urban Ecology Center Data Reduction

The club collected GPS data about the location of invasive species at the Urban Ecology Center on 10/30/14. Now we need to transform the data into a useful map. The officers are working on setting a date to create the map. See the meeting page for more details.

Estabrook Park Disc Golf Map

Client: Estabrook Disc Golf Club

Need: To create a map of each of the course's 18 holes.

Description: The Estabrook Disc Golf Club asked the GIS Club to survey the course and to produce a map for each hole. The map was to show the tee and the several alternative basket locations.

Results: On October 27, 2011 members of the GIS Club surveyed (and played) the Estabrook Course. We established the location of the holes and baskets using one of the club's Trimble Juno SB GPS receivers.

The club is translating the GPS fixes to maps for each hole.
