If you’ve driven past the golf course this week you might have noticed some students traipsing around in the underbrush near the driving range and Sunflower day care. The students are part of Bucknell’s GIS team and they have been collecting high resolution elevation data for the Miller Run restoration project. The students will be out there for another 2-3 weeks (+ or – a week depending on when the oat crop gets harvested – yes, really!). Here’s a short video to describe the work they’re doing. Thanks to Lindsay Coffee, a student video assistant, for taking the footage and producing the clip.
