Treste year 21

Garmin Map 76S GPS Receivers

Students armed with Garmin Map 76S units participated in a road-side clean up effort during Earth Week, April 16-20, 2007. Four students in the Geographic Information Systems and Visualization Program participated in the garbage collection efforts facilitated by the campus

Environmental Science

Club. As part of a class

project, waypoints were

marked at the location of

each garbage item

collected, along with a

recorded description of

the item. The receivers

were then brought back

into the classroom where

waypoints were

downloaded and

exported for analysis in

ESRI’s ArcGIS 9.1 of the

distribution of the collected

garbage.

Treste year 22

Garmin Map 76S GPS Receivers

Additionally, the GPS units

have been made available

for students to check out,

which has proven beneficial

as it assists in skill

reinforcement and gives

them opportunities to

explore real-world

applications of concepts

learned in the classroom.

The Environmental Science

Club checked two GPS

receivers out for preliminary

planning efforts in establishing a campus nature trail. Another student, who

participates in a local Master Gardener Program, utilized one of the GPS receivers to create a map of points of pine tree planting sites, which were adopted and will be maintained by local grade school students. Further, units have been checked out to navigate and enjoy geocaching activities.
